Hand Drawn Heart Banner

Hello friends!

Today I want to share a simple and easy to make craft that anyone can make… the super crafty and the super un-crafty. Plus, it’s perfect for Valentine’s Day! Check out this Hand Drawn Heart Banner I whipped up the other day in under 10 minutes…

valentines banner7

To make this adorable decoration, you will need the following things:

  • plain canvas pennants (Oriental Trading Company)
  • baker’s twine (red and pink)
  • fabric markers (red and pink)
  • scissors

valentines banner1

Spread out the canvas pennants and use the fabric markers to draw hearts on each triangle. 

valentines banner2

If you can draw hearts, then you can totally make this Hand Drawn Heart Banner!

After you finish drawing on the hearts, string the baker’s twine through the holes on the pennants. If your pennants don’t have holes, you can also hot glue the tops of the pennants to the baker’s twine.

When you’re finished, hang it up with some cute washi tape!

Nice and easy right? I adore banners and have some for each holiday and even banners I keep up year round! #putabanneronit ;) 

Thanks for stopping by today friends! Have a great weekend!

Simple Fabric Banner {tutorial}

Hello and welcome!

Thanks for popping in to read Mine for the Making today! I am excited to share a {no sewing skills required} fabric banner tutorial with you. This banner can be made for any holiday, party, or occasion…just change the fabric to suit your needs. Let’s get started shall we?

Simple Fabric Banner

simple fabric banner


Materials Needed:

Fabric-  You need about 1/4 of a yard total, depending on how many pennants you want to make. I like to use several different fabrics.

Twine, yarn or jute-   I used a 55 inch piece of jute. Again it depends on how long you want your banner.


Hot glue gun & sticks

Measuring tape

Optional: rotary cutter and cutting mat

simple fabric banner how to


Cut your fabric into 4.5 inch by 9 inch rectangles. I used 3 different fabrics and cut out 2 rectangles from each for a total of 6 rectangles.

Fold a rectangle in half (hamburger style).

Fold your rectangle again (hot dog style).

Starting about half way up the fold, you are going to cut diagonally to the (open) corner of the fabric (if you cut it wrong, you’ll be able to tell right away).

Repeat this will all fabric rectangles.

Cut a piece of jute, yarn, or twine. I cute a piece that was 55 inches long.

Using your hot glue gun, put a bead of glue along the (inside) fold line of the pennants and place the jute on the bead of glue.

Fold the top half of the fabric pennant down and add dots of hot glue to the inside corners so they don’t flap up.

Hang on a wall, doorway, fire place, mantle, mirror, frame, etc. These make such great gifts too!

We will be making patriotic fabric banners in my next craft class for the 4th of July.

*Tip:  Before gluing my pennants on the jute, I first find the middle of my jute by folding it in half. I space my pennants off of the middle of the jute and work my way out to the ends of the jute, gluing the pennants. I also put 1 or 2 fingers in between each pennant before gluing to easily and evenly space them.

Here’s the fabric banner hung in my craft room...

I used the same material that I used for the fabric hoops I shared a week or two ago HERE.

Be sure to follow me on Instagram too! I love sharing sneak peeks of projects with my IG friends…

 I just LOVE these banners, don’t you? I’ve made them for birthday party and baby shower decor as well as gift for friends. We even made some at the SNAP Conference Pajama Party this year! Way fun.

Thank you for stopping by today! If you make a simple fabric banner, it would make my day if you leave a comment or email me a photo of it so I can feature you on my Facebook page!

See ya later, friends!

Painted Heart Burlap Banner

Hi there friends!
I hope you had a great weekend and a great start to your week. I’m stopping by today to share a simple and sweet banner that is perfect Valentine’s Day. We made this banner during MFTM Craft Class last week and they turned out so pretty. 
Sponge brush
Lace or ribbon
small piece of card stock
Hot glue gun and sticks
1. Cut 5 triangles out of your burlap and set aside.
2. Fold of card stock (mine was 3in x 3in) in half and cut a half heart around the fold line. Discard the heart, but keep the square of card stock with the missing heart center.
3. Place heart stencil in the center of your burlap triangles and paint with your sponge brush (dabbing/blotting). I prefer the flat top sponge brush for this. Repeat on all  5 triangles and allow dry time.
4. Hot glue the triangles to the twine (I used a 55 in piece of twine).
5. Add lace or ribbon in between your triangles.
6. Hang on your mantle, shelf, mirror, doorway, etc.
The girls at MFTM Craft Class were so much fun and loved their pretty Valentine banners. I loved seeing all of the different versions. If you are in Arizona and would like to attend a craft class, send me an email and I’ll get you on the monthly newsletter list. 
Thanks so much for stopping by, friends!

DIY New Year’s Eve Photo Booth

Hi there, friends!
I have a FUN and CHEAP idea for you to help you ring in the New Year! Usually we spend our NYE at home eating and playing games. I wanted to add something new to our celebrations this year but I didn’t have much money to spend on the festivities. Here’s what I came up with…
Super fun, right?
White plastic table cloth
Colorful card stock
Colorful tissue paper
Wooden skewers
Push pins
 Craft Paint
Circle sponge brush
Hot glue gun & sticks
*Almost all items I had on hand already. I just went through my craft stash.*
I used my Silhouette (favorite crafting tool EVER…what would I do without her?) to cut out all of the photo props, hats and banner. 
I hot glued the skewers to the photo props and the pennants to twine to make the banner.
I added rhinestones and paint polka dots (craft paint + circle sponge brush) for a little something extra.
For the hats, I added yarn to tie them to our heads (since I had it on hand) and made tissue paper pom-poms to add to the tops of the hats. 
For our “photo booth,” I hung a white plastic table cloth from the wall using push pins.
And then we went to crazytown with the paper props and hats…
We used my iPhone to take all of the photos and then I used a fun app for the edits (FotoLR3)…
I LOVE the way they all turned out! Too fun.
There you go friends! 
A FUN and simple way to ring in the New Year at home with the family and friends.
Thanks for stopping by and have a SAFE and HAPPY New Year’s Eve!
I will see you back here Monday for MFTM’s TOP posts of 2012!

Simple Spring Banner {tutorial}

Does it feel like Spring in your neck of the woods?
Here in the desert, it’s felt like Spring for a few weeks now and we are really taking advantage of the weather. In just a few weeks I’m sure it will be deadly hot here in Arizona. 
We try to do meal time, art, and reading outside as much as possible. And throw in the weekly trips to the park, our family bike rides, and renovating the backyard, Id say we are outside a lot of the time.
With all of that said…Spring makes me think of great weather, bright flowers in bloom, and birds chirping. 
Which inspired my Simple Spring Banner…
Foam letters
Hot glue and gun
Cut out 6 triangles from your burlap. Be sure you cut them big enough to fit your foam letters on.
Hot glue the foam letters onto the burlap triangles.
Glue twine to the back of all of the burlap triangles, spelling out the word SPRING.
Cut pieces of ribbon and tie them in between each triangle.
Hang your banner from a shelf, mantle, frame, mirror, or on a wall.
I kept what I usually have on this shelf, just added the Simple Spring banner, and Easter egg tree, and a white ceramic bird. Simple and bright hints of Spring.
What do you think friends?
This banner probably took me all of 20 minutes to put together and hang up. It’s been busy around here, so I appreciate a quick and cute craft.

Like it? 

I hope your week is off to a great start!
See you tomorrow, friends.

Fall Decorating 2011

Thought I would share our fall decor this year with a couple of pictures before I take it all down to decorate for Halloween…..SO excited about that.
Happy Fall, ya’ll! 
This is the entry way table. Ignore the undone baseboards. 
Complete with the mini fall wreath, fall blocks, Autumn wooden sign (vinyl from Groop Dealz), doily banner, dollar store apothecary, and garage sale/thrifted fall items.
I ♥ this clock that in my entry way. A small cluster of wicker pumpkins below.
This restored garage sale shelf is above the TV in our living room. Notice the fabric pumpkins and doily banner. The leaf lantern was in the dollar spot at Target.
Here’s the piano in our dining room decorated for fall complete with pumpkins and gourds from Hobby Lobby (50% off last year), leaves tied with twine around the candles and sprinkled on the piano, and the fall burlap banner.
So there you have it! Fall in our neck of the woods… err….desert. 
You can see last year’s fall decor here if you are nosey like me. 
Thanks for stopping by! 
Can’t wait to feature a few DIY Divas tomorrow! Come back to find out who they are.

Burlap Pennant Banner for Fall {tutorial}

This year I decided to get out all of my fall decorations before buying or making anything new. I wanted to see what I had and what I was going to use this year. Most of my fall decorations I made or thrifted…I don’t tend to spend a whole lot of money on decorating. It’s just not in the budget for a new SAHM that is starting up a family business.
After I decorated, I noticed a HUGE blank space above our piano. 
Enter in: Burlap Pennant Banner for Fall

{not all supplies pictured}

-twine (length depends on where you will hang it)
-4 burlap triangles
-craft paint (I used black)
-foam brush
-hot glue & gun
-freezer paper
-blow dryer
-Fall stencil or a craft cutter (I used my Silhouette) 
1. Design your stencil by hand or using your craft cutter.

2. Using your freezer paper, cut out the word “Fall” and iron onto the burlap (shiny side down). It sticks like magic!

3. Using your foam brush, paint your letters.
4. Blow dry the paint for fast dry time.
5. Peal off the freezer paper stencil…ooooo and aaaahhhh over how crisp the lines are on your letters.

6. Hot glue the triangles to your twine and add any embellishments you want (I tied fall ribbon in between each triangle).
7. Hang up your new fall banner and admire.

The great thing about this banner is that you can make it say anything you want and you can make it for any occasion/holiday! More than likely I will make one for Halloween as well. 
I had everything I needed to make this banner, so I didn’t spend any money to add a new fall decoration to my collection. Another free project? Wow…I am on a roll and no complaints from the hard-working hubby : )
Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you are having a great weekend!

Baby Shower Banners

I mentioned that I was busy making banners for a close friend’s baby shower when I shared the “Owl  Always ♥ you” printable I made for her nursery, and today I am excited to share them with you!
I made 2 pennant banners using my Silhouette, scrapbook paper, ribbon, and hot glue.
I also made a pinwheel and fanned circle banner with sweet Sofia’s name on it. I used the same materials for both banners, except I used twine for the name banner instead of ribbon.. I used my Silhouette to cut out Sofia’s name on a piece of scrap white vinyl.

I just ♥ the paper I picked out (purchased at Michael’s). 

How cute are the pinwheels?! 
I LOVE making pennant banners and was inspired to try something new when Ami from AliLilly made her daughter’s birthday banner! I used the same tutorial that Ami used from My Blessed Life.
I already knew how to make pinwheels and just in case you don’t, here’s a great tutorial.
I am also going to be making pink and green tissue paper pom-poms for the shower. Besides banners, tissue paper pompoms are my favorite go-to DIY decoration.
So what do you think? Do you purchase or make your party decorations? 
Thanks for stopping by! Join me next week for a back-to-school printable and a sneak peek at the baby shower gift I made for my friend’s sweet Sofia!
