DIY Valentine's Party

I was recently asked by Mia of Mossy JoJo to participate in a Valentine's Day themed DIY party. As I'm sure you can tell from many projects on my blog, I'm all about DIY, so I was excited to participate!

Here's the rundown:
Summary:
Theme: Valentine
Challenge: Use up to 4 materials
I decided to make a fun bunting to hang in my house to spread the love :)
Materials used:
1. 2 pieces of material in different colors (I chose red acrylic for the hearts and wood for the letters)
2. Adhesive (I used glue dots)
3. Twine or Ribbon for hanging
4. Cutting tool such as a kraft knife or scissors (I used my laser)

I want to point out that while I used my laser for this project, many other materials could be substituted for this project. Scrapbook paper and letter stickers would make a super cute and super easy banner. Or pink cardstock for the hearts and kraft cardstock for the letters! The options are limitless!

What I did:
 I cut out the hearts and the letters.
Then adhered the letters using the glue dots
I strung the hearts on the twine and tied a loop on each end.
(Yup...it's that easy!)
I hung the bunting in our living room. I found this empty frame and thought it added as nice touch and helped the bunting stand out :)
Please stop by and see the other Valentine's DIYs from Mia and Marieken!

What a simple, cute idea! It looks great. I also second the comments that it would be a great addition to your shop. You could customize this concept for any occasion.

Cute! I'm not sure how I missed this post when it was new. I love the contrast of the acrylic and wood.
