Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and it’s a great time to start easy projects for decorating the home in shades of pink and red. We love this “Sugared” Heart Banner idea from HGTV. Simple yet adorable, this is a low time commitment project with big results. Create just one strand of hearts, or make several heart banners for a beaded curtain effect to hang in a doorway.
What you’ll need:
- Cardstock hearts
- Grosgrain Ribbon
- Amazing EcoGlue Craft Adhesive
- Spray Adhesive
- Print and cut out these hearts from HGTV or create your own. Make sure to use cardstock paper for best results.
- Lay the hearts on a flat work surface, such as on newspaper or a plastic drop cloth.
- Coat the patterned side with spray adhesive.
- While the glue is still wet, dust each side with crystal glitter and allow to dry.
- Remove any excess glitter from hearts by gently tapping them.
- Apply Amazing EcoGlue to hearts and affix to grosgrain ribbon.
- Make the banner as long as you like by adding more hearts to the ribbon.
