I’m a huge fan of bunting and garland. It’s super festive and usually super easy to make!I bought a sheet of scrap book paper to the tune of 30 cents and the rest of the materials I already had on hand: scissors, yarn, a ruler (not featured: glue gun and pencil. One of these days I’ll actually photograph all the materials I use, promise!)This paper warranted a close-up. The message? Keep calm and have a cupcake. Works for me!I cut out one inch strips and folded them in half. I picked out a two sided paper since I knew both sides would be visible for this little project.Then use a pencil to curl the ends simply by rolling the paper around the pencil. They will be tight so you’ll just hafta to unravel them a bit.The hot glue the two curls to one another to form the heart shape. And then hot glue the individual hearts to the yarn.And hang. I love hanging decorations from our kitchen cabinets because they’re visible from any place on the downstairs level, even the entry way. That’s maximum decoration for the effort!
That’s about the extent of my Valentine’s Day decoration (I also have a balloon for Anak). I had some of those window jellies but they mysteriously got stuck on the wall and left a stain, bleh.
