It’s the season of love – and what better way to show you love some through your positive actions and good vibes. The older I get, the more I realize that we’re all connected in some way and every action we take can affect someone else’s daily life. We must remember that love is indeed an action verb – we’re meant to go do something with our love for someone else. Remember that as you celebrate the month of love this year!
Now here’s the easiest banner you’ll every make. With just a few supplies, you can make a sweet photo backdrop at your Valentine’s Day party.
- Foil cardstock paper (or any cardstock color of your choice)
- Fiskars circle cutter
- Hot glue and gun
- Sticky letters
- Embroidery needle
Use the Friskers circle cutter to make 12 circles, 11 centimeters in diameter. You can play around with those measurements to choose the right circle size you prefer. If using foil paper, a tip is to cut on the foil side of the paper and not the white (back) side. This way you’ll have clean edges when the circles are removed.
Adhere each letter in the center of each circle. You can reinforce the adhesion with hot glue.
Use a thumb tack to poke two small holes at the top of the circle and using the embroidery needle, thread the twine through the holes. If you don’t have a needle, try poking the thread through the holes with a safety pin, toothpick, or tip of a bamboo skewer. Leave enough twine at the ends of the banner to tape it to the wall.
Tape it to the wall and add any other embellishments to make you photo backdrop pop. Add a few mini balloons to make it more festive and for extra color. Dress your best and take a few snapshots!
