valentines day garland
It’s Wednesday, y’all (well it was when I wrote this). And on Wednesdays we wear pink.
With that being said, I thought it was the perfect day to post this pink, white, and gold Valentine’s Day banner that I made! This one is super easy - but be warned, I did make my letters using my Cricut. You could easily improvise with glitter glue, or even sticker letters from the craft store!
I wanted something cute and festive for the upcoming love day, and also wanted to use my gold foil vinyl. Win win. Oh - AND - I scored these cute doilies and the glitter pink hearts from the dollar store. That makes this bad boy pretty darn cheap.
Let’s dive right in.
Glitter hearts - I got mine from Dollar Tree
White heart doilies - I got mine from Dollar Tree
Sticker letters (if not using a Cricut)
Cricut (for letters)
Standard grip mat (actually could use strong grip too)
Free font - Sugar & Spice (dafont,com)
Step One: Design your L O V E letters in Cricut Design Space. I made mine about 1.8” tall, and used the Sugar & Spice font downloaded from dafont.com
Step Two: Cut it out in your gold foil vinyl and weed- I set mine on my Cricut Explore One to the Light Yardstick setting. I tried the Foil Vinyl setting but it didn’t quite make it all the way through the vinyl. This light cardstock setting ended up cutting through the paper backing which I didn’t want, but it still worked. You may want to mess around with yours!
Step Three: Once the letters are cut out, or you are using sticker letters that you bought, place them onto four of your white heart doilies.
Step Four: Now, poke 2 holes in each of your glitter hearts. I actually used my weeding tool, but a small hole punch would work great!
Step Five: Cut about a 5’ - 6’ length of twine (I used pink/white bakers twine) and thread the hearts and the doilies through! VOILA! So easy.
