I love making banners and I love that I finally have a stairwell railing to hang them on. This wasn’t a quick project but it was definitely worth the time it took to make it. I love looking at it (pun intended) and enjoy having it as part of my Valentine’s Day decorations.
I first used the sponge daubers to put the ink on the banner for the dots and lines. Once that dried, I went back and added the l, o, v and e. In between the two times of putting the ink on the banner, I worked on making the lollies and flags for the two end pieces of the banner. Once everything was put together and dry, I added the finishing touches; hearts and ribbon!
