1 Hour Love Day Banner




I love love. Does that make sense? I feel so good when I hear, see or feel love. Only one day a year seems a little on the skimpy side. But everyday is Valentines Day in my house. We say I love you, a lot. But part of me gets sickened by the gross amounts of pink and red Valentines Day seems to exude. Don't get me wrong I still use those sometimes, but not to excess. I like seeing shades of blush and raspberry instead.

I made this whole banner start to finish in under 1 hour. Perfect nap time project! I saw something similar a long time ago (aka pre-pinterest). So I did my best to create something similar.
What you will need:
Paint Chip Samples in your favorite colors. 
Chipboard or Card Stock (Cereal boxes work great!)
String
Sharpie (a pen/pencil would work fine too)
Scissors
Hole punch (aka my meat fork)
A sleeping baby helps too

oh and some flowers from Trader Joe's


Make a heart, on the card stock and use it as a template onto the samples. 


I choose Glidden samples because they were the biggest solid color ones. The multi-tone samples would be neat too. Honestly the rest is self explanatory, you cut them out and string them together!  I did use my meat fork to produce evenly spaced holes. 

If you need step by step instructions for how to poke holes and string them together. I will happily send you the number to my 7th grade home-ec teacher Mrs. Armbruster. 

I have a ton of 3M command strips and I always use them on stuff like this. I cut out 2 extra hearts to make end caps for the banner. 


HAVE A HAPPY LOVE DAY!!

oh, and make sure to hang it out of reach.

  2. Renovation involves a comprehensive modernize of the rest room and its plumbing as well. People really need to know that this could be quire high priced.
    It’s essential to make sure which you set up a very good strategy for redesigning the rest room. There are many other costs concerned.
