Valentine’s Day Crafts: Music of My Heart Valentine’s Day Banner
- Sheet music
- Craft glue
If you are unsure where to buy sheet music, check out your local thrift or antique shops. You can typically find old music books, manuals, and sheets for less than $1. If you’re planning on making a very large banner or several of these fun Valentine’s Day crafts, you can grab a sheet music book on Amazon for under $5. You don’t need a great deal, in fact we were able to cut four decent sized hearts out of just one piece of music. As for the ribbon, we were able to find this simple yet festive red ribbon at our local dollar store, making this Valentine’s Day decor craft a frugal one.
1. Begin by gently folding your sheet music in half. This will make your hearts more even when you begin cutting them out.
2. Using a stencil or just free handing, begin cutting out hearts from the sheet music. Repeat the process until you have the number of hearts you wish. We opted for a shorter banner using larger hearts, so four was the perfect number for us. Snip out more or less depending on your needs.
3. Lay your ribbon flat on a counter top or floor. Apply a few dabs of glue to the top portions of the hearts. Directly on the curves seems to work well. Press the hearts to the ribbon, holding it firmly in place until it adheres.
4. Repeat the process spacing your hearts out every two inches or so until the banner is the length you wish.
5. You can add more embellishing if you wish, such as glitter on the hearts or ribbon in between each heart. We chose to leave ours simple but get creative if you wish!
Your banner is now ready for hanging. It will look so sweet hanging from a mantel, book shelf, entryway, or even the front of an office desk. Just use a little tape and hang the banner wherever you wish. It is sure to add some romantic Valentine’s Day charm to your home that is simple yet elegant.
Gather the supplies you need and give this music of my heart Valentine’s Day decor banner a try. It is a great way to get into the holiday spirit in a way that is fun, frugal, and more unique than the traditional red and pink explosions you typically see.
