Garnet Hill Inspired Heart Chalkboard Banner

As I was browsing the aisle of my favorite hangout { Hobby Lobby }…

Ok…first you have to understand that HL is very close to my kid’s schools, and sometimes you just have 15 minutes extra before carpool.That’s my disclaimer for frequent trips there.

Anyway…I saw all of these Valentine’s crafts and hanging right in the middle of those black painted “scratch-off thingies” were these little hearts…

I almost walked by until I realized they were in fact CHALKBOARD hearts. Super Cute!! I had just seen a sweet little chalkboard banner in the Garnet Hill catalog.

So…at 30% off I snatched up one little $4.99 bag { before discount } of 12!!

Here is how I made my super cute banners {yep, 2!!}…

Start by punching two holes in each chalkboard heart { place them just below the level of the deep dip in the heart so that they will hang correctly!}

Next, weave twine {jute} through the hearts. HINT: I always leave lots of extra twine on the ends in case I want to move the banner somewhere else.

Thread the number of hearts on that you will need { I placed 9 on one banner and 3 on the other} !

Simple and sweet!!

yet…so meaningful!!!
