I finally got to sit down and play today! I had the general idea for this in my head but it was greatly helped along when Rachel from Holy Craft shared a tutorial on coffee filter flowers that made me really want to bring the idea for this banner (that’s now on our bedroom mirror) to life.
The banner is a combination of coffee filter flowers and paper mache heart shaped Christmas ornaments I picked up 50% off after Christmas.
I covered the heart with a gray paper from Echo Park. I had some great lace ribbon trim in my stash and hot glued that around the edge of each ornament.
Here’s a better shot of what the ribbon looks like.
I cut out the letters L O V E on CoCo, my Silhouette Cameo, and put one letter on each heart.
Then I made my flowers. 5 coffee filters per flower and following Rachel’s tutorial.
Thank you Dollar Tree. 160 coffee filters for $1!
I made 5 flowers so I had one for each end and to go between the letters. I strung the hearts on some silver tulle using the thread that was already attached and then clipped the flowers using clothespins, then strung the banner across the mirror. And while this might be Valentine’s themed, with the colors I used I can actually leave it up permanently.
