All You Need is Love...

...and some burlap, paint, and freezer paper! :)

I must say I have so enjoyed my frame wreath I made for Christmas.  Not only do I love the color it adds to my door, but I am loving changing it up for the different seasons/holidays.

And what is right around the corner? 
 
 Valentine's Day of course!
 
In order to enjoy my decor for as long as possible, I got started tonight.  What better place to start then my frame wreath?!
 
 
Who doesn't love burlap and a bunting banner??
 
Now let me tell you how to make this EASY project so you can run out and make one yourself.
 
First cut out your triangles in whatever size you want your banner to be.
Next, print out the font you want to use on a Word document and size it as big as you want.
Then, get out your freezer paper and trace your letters on to it (sticky side down)!
 
Once you have all your letters traced used a X-acto knife to cut out your letters and make your stencil.
 
Still keeping your freezer paper sticky side down, iron it on to your burlap (dry setting).
 
Paint over your stencil with your acrylic paint.  You can use any color you want.  Red would have been fun, but all I had here at home was black.
 
Once your paint has dried (and it doesn't take long), peel off your freezer paper and voila!
 
I simply hand threaded some twine through the top of my banner, but you could use hot glue would work as well.
 

Arrange your banner on your frame and there you have it - Valentine decor!


I see a lot more of these in my future...

**I apologize for some of the lighting in the pictures.  I've been having some camera issues and it was dark outside when I hung my banner, but I just had to show you!!
