We have been having so much fun creating Valentine's crafts such as Valentine's Day Cards Using Shaving Cream and Hearts with Black Glue. Recently, we made a Valentine's Day Banner that has been brightening up our home. My favorite things about it? The fact that it was cheap (the whole thing cost $1) and that I was able to incorporate my kids' artwork in it.
Valentine's Day Banner
Supplies you will need:
- Kids artwork - red paint and white paper, gift box, small balls like golf balls
Previously, I had the kids do some Golf Ball Painting. It was a fun activity and I was so happy with results that I thought I could use their artwork to create a Valentine's Day banner.
I bought some red doilies at the dollar store and cut the center solid heart out of one of them. I used that heart as a template and then traced hearts onto the dried golf ball paintings. I then cut out the painted hearts and glued them to the middle of the doilies. Next, I strung the doilies on some red polka dot ribbon that I had leftover from Christmas.
Then I hung them on the mantle. These would look great in an entry way too.
The kids loved seeing their artwork as part of the banner.
I hope you enjoy making this Valentine's Day banner with your kids today. No one will believe it just cost you $1.
