Chalkboard Valentine Banner

Happy Valentines Day 💕
Today I wanted to share a simple chalkboard banner that was so easy to create and really adds some charm to the kitchen hutch.


Tuesday Morning is one of my favorite places to shop and the last trip there I discovered this fun chalkboard banner kit.


Since I already have my chalkboard markers this would be an easy project to put together in no time.
I picked up a stencil pack from WalMart cause free hand lettering is not something I have mastered yet and maybe never will :)


To add some color to the banner I remembered some little hearts that I had stitched up for last Valentines Day.


I added the hearts in between each of the lettered pieces of the banner.
Some other touches of red are added to the hutch as well.


These little love bears have been packed away for a while so it was time to bring them out to enjoy.





One of my most treasured items is this beautiful pot holder that my granny crocheted. I use it as a doily though, it is just too pretty to mess up with pots and pans.


Since the hutch was moved into the kitchen this past Fall, it has provided so many opportunities to decorate for different seasons and holidays.


I hope all of you have a lovely Valentines Day 💕
Karen

  2. Very festive, Karen. Your banner turned out great! I like all your special touches of red and the cute bears. Your grandmother's crochet work is gorgeous! Wow, I wouldn't want to use that a a potholder, either. Way too pretty and special. Happy Valentine's Day! xo

    1. Thank you Rue! I learned to crochet from my granny long ago but am rusty now. I need to get back into it so my granddaughter will hopefully have something like this from me :)

  10. Definitely don't use that pot holder Karen! It's such a lovely treasure to have. I tried to crochet in high school (just a few years ago lol) and I couldn't quite get the hang of it, but I can appreciate good workmanship.

  12. Super cute! My favorite is the crocheted piece...I wouldn't use it as a pot holder either. Far too pretty for that. Hope you are doing well and have a great week!

  13. Gosh I love Valentine's Day - I think I have almost as many decorations for that holiday as I do for Christmas! Your banner is so cute -- and that pot holder!! Wow - that caught my eye right away but to see that your grandma had MADE it -- what a treasure. Those were the days, right? I just love all things kitchen-vintage. Enjoyed looking at all your ideas.
