Valentine's Day Bunting


A few weeks ago, I found some heart cupcake liners in Target's Dollar Spot.  I picked up two packs knowing I wanted to use them somehow in my Valentine's decorations.  I ended up making some easy and adorable bunting.




This is super easy.  Just grab some cupcake liners, some string (I used twine) and some washi tape.  I got mine from Downtown Tape.  It doesn't look they they have it anymore but it has little hearts on it and says love.  Fold over a cupcake liner and tape both sides together with double sided tape.  You could also sew them together, close to the string, to keep them a little more in place.  I put double sided tape close to the middle of the liner and over the string and mine still moved just a bit.  Then fold over a piece of washi tape, cut to the shape of a banner and repeat.  So so easy.


Add a sweet message and you're all finished.


I actually loved how this looked on Sarah's chalkboard so I'm going to use it in her room instead of the living room, where I had originally planned.  Click here to see the tutorial on how I made this chalkboard out of a cabinet door.

Have a great Tuesday and see you soon with some more Valentine's projects!
