I love super-easy DIY projects. Those are the ones I have time for, and those are the ones I create for you to enjoy or to be inspired by.
I always want you to feel like you can do any of my projects.
Here is another one.
Decorating for Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be elaborate. Remember the Valentine’s Day centerpiece I just threw together?
You can make this Valentine’s Day banner with vintage playing cards in just a few minutes — no glue gun required.
The kids can help you with this, it’s that easy.
I’ve accumulated several vintage decks of cards during my thrifting trips, and for this banner I repurposed cards from a small kids-size card deck.
DIY Valentine’s Day Banner With Vintage Playing Cards
Supplies you’ll need:
- hearts playing cards
- yarn or ribbon or jute like this
- Valentine’s Day-themed dimensional stickers or cutouts (here are some from Martha Stewart)
- mini clothespins (here are some on Amazon)
I left enough of the see-through backing of the dimensional stickers on them so they are actually not sticky and can be used again for another project.
I also used the little clothespins to attach the banner to the runner on top of our mantel. Easy peasy. Done.
Do you decorate for Valentine’s Day? Even if you usually don’t, this banner is a perfect first project to tackle.
It would look sweet in many other spots of your hours: on your headboard, above a door, or draped over the back of a chair.
