Pretty Valentines Day Bunting ... ♥




This little project is really nothing new ...
just a different spin on an already popular idea :)




i looooooooooooove Valentines Day
all the pink-ness, heart-ness, pink-ness, and heart-ness
{did i mention i love the pink & the hearts?}
i found these shabby cupcake papers and the butterfly in the dollar bins at Michaels
{score!}
gather up some doilies, beads and cording of any sort 





i threaded all the beads on first so i could start sewing the twine into the paper 
without having to re-thread my needle a bunch of times
fold the doilies & cupcake papers in half






then take your sewing machine cover off ... and find a little deer :)
my littlest little left this here ♥
{she later asked me if i found my "surprise" ... she's so funny ♥}
ok, so put a clothespin on the end your starting with 
to keep the first bead from falling off






fold the papers over the twine and sew
placing the beads in between each doily as you go






stitch right underneath the twine, being careful not to catch it 
if you want to be able to adjust the spacing later when it's hanging





hot glue the butterfly wherever your little heart desires
tie a loop on each end and you're done ♥





happy Valentines Day crafting :)
and i have one more quick post about my kitchen org coming up soon :)
with gladness in my heart ♥ psalm. four. seven.

  1. So beautiful! I finally made it to the Dollar bin at Michaels. I picked up a bunch of fun stuff but I didn't see either of these. Would have loved some of those butterflies!!

  2. So cute! Questions: I've been curious about sewing paper. Should I use a different needle from what I use for fabric or is it fine to use the same one?

  11. Very sweet!

    I was wondering if you might be willing to share how you organize your fabric. I was looking at your lovely creative space and am curious how you fold the fabric,etc. It looks like a fabric shop! It's so organized and pretty!

    1. thanks so much for the comment :) i used large pieces of chipboard (cardboard would work too) cut them to size and folded the fabric around it, then pin! that's it ... here are a few great links if you need more of a visual :) hope this helps!

  15. First time here after I saw your creative space in the latest RH magazine yesterday...love this bunting idea! I have so many cupcake liners that I collected just for the pretty designs (didn't want to waste them in baking!) I also recognize some of your room's features on the all vintage sheets blog...another great idea to store/display the sheets. Are they wrapped around foam core or cardboard?

    1. hi Tammy! so glad you found me :)
      i feel the same way about cupcake papers! i hoard them (heehee) it's a bit of a problem :) my fabric is wrapped around chipboard, but cardboard would do just fine ... thanks for the visit! ♥
