Valentine Paint Chip Pennant Banner

My poor Mantel has suffered from neglect.
After I stripped it from Christmas it sat empty.
Then things started to get piled on it.
I am serious it did.
That got rectified real quick.

Now since Valentine's Day is around the corner
And Beth  is going to have one of her Mantel Link Parties
I need to get moving.

Problem is I can't find my Valentine Decorations.
And I am not sure if the made the move or not.
So back to square one with nothing in the budget.
Thankfully my craft supplies are getting organized
As I create my New Creative Space

So we need to create new Valentine Decorations.
After looking all over Pinterest
I have some ideas.

Yeah I have a problem with collecting paint chips.
Somedays when I need to get out of the house without the 5 year old I go to Lowe's or Home Depot and raid their paint chips.
It's what I call my "Mommy Escape"
It's that or the fabric store.
The paint chips cost less.

Seriously it took my glue gun longer to heat up than do this.

Supplies needed:
Paint chips (the long skinny ones)
Baker's Twines (string, thread, ribbon)
Heart Buttons (from JoAnn Fabrics )

Fold and Cut ends of Paint Chips

Fold over the Baker's Twine and Glue/Tape

Add Buttons and Hang up

Done !!!

Hanging out with my Friends........
