DIY Valentine Banner with Patterned Template

Make your Own Valentine Banner

This little Valentine banner is very easy to put together.  The template for the printable includes the floral and polka dot patterns so you don’t need patterned cardstock.

You can fold the valentine shapes open so make it 3D, or you can leave it flat like I did.

Pink Valentine Template

Cut out the Valentines from the printable sheets.

Carefully and slowly sew along the twine (watch your fingers) as the needle approaches where you want the first heart and stop sewing.

Layer the four valentines and slide underneath the twine and the sewing foot.  Do this so that the center of the heart is lined up with the needle.

Sew the twine and the paper hearts together.  Continue past the hearts and keep sewing until you get to where you want the next heart to be.

On this banner I would sew until the end of the previous valentine reaches the edge of the sewing machine plate.

Repeat until you attach all the Valentines.

Even with sewing this really slowly,  the sewing only took 10 minutes.  I was surprised and pleased that I was able to just sew along the entire length.  I did not need to cut the thread or glue, or staple or fiddle with anything.  It worked very smoothly.

This banner costs less than a dollar to make.  I think its perfect for teachers, a little one’s room, or a friend with an office cubicle.

Happy Valentines

  1. Such a cute idea for adding a little holiday flare to your decor! I don’t know why I never decorate for Valentine’s Day but you’ve inspired me!

    1. I don’t do very much for Valentine’s day anymore as we are empty nesters. The decor itself is so pretty and appealing though. I hope you find time to do some and enjoy it. Happy Valentines

  2. I saw your Valentine banner at the dishing & digging it party, Leanna, and knew before pressing the link that it was yours because of your signature elegant romantic style! Very pretty banner – pinned

    1. Your such a sweetheart Marie. Thank you for choosing mine to comment on when you recognized it. It very nice to know that I am developing a certain “look” to my photographs, its a goal I am working hard on. Thank you so very much for noticing and providing me feedback on it.

    1. I just started doing banners garlands a couple of years ago and now I really love using them and making them. Thank you for commenting

    1. Thank you for saying so Julie. I thought the modern blue, and of course pink made it less gender specific that the over the top romantic style.

    1. Thank you, Christine. I recently came across the grain scoop and it looked like the perfect farmhouse style display piece.
