How to Make a Floral Heart Shaped Banner for Valentine's Day

For the past year I have been contributing to local print and online magazine, I like Her Style Vancouver, and contributed this piece on how to make a floral heart garland. It’s been so amazing to see my creations in print, along with other creators that I love so much. See the full issue online here.

Over the Christmas holidays I was knee deep in Pinterest boards and exploring all the holiday feels, and that’s when I stumbled upon it, an absolutely stunning ornament made from popsicle sticks.

PS: If you don’t already follow me on Pinterest, find me here. I share mostly hair styles, home decor, recipes and party ideas.

That was it, popsicle sticks and a little hot glue held that ornament creation together. That’s when I started to think about what I could create with popsicle sticks and how could I bring them to life.

I loved that they are so durable, allowing you to add weight without damaging the structure. As my brain wheels started to turn I imagined up this floral heart garland with mini clothespins to hang pictures. I was onto something here.

Just a quick trip to the store, a few materials later and I was focused on creating this floral heart shaped garland. I found the first heart took me the first time, deciding where to place each flower and seeing what the overall look would become as I rearranged a few times.

After that the rest was a breeze, I got into a groove and five hearts were done in no time. Each one fastened with a mini clothespin that is perfect for hanging your child’s artwork, family photos or anything else you love.

The floral heart garland was such a fun addition to a Valentine’s themed party I recently put together and after that I plan on hanging it up in my daughter’s room year round as they both love it!

How to Make a Floral Heart Shaped Banner

Materials: 

  • Hot Glue Gun & Glue Sticks
  • Ribbon
  • Popsicle Sticks
  • Faux Florals and Greenery (pluck the flowers off the tops so you just have the heads)
  • Mini Clothespins

Instructions:

1. Grab four popsicles for each heart that you want to make. I made five hearts, using 20 popsicle sticks. For each heart you want to break in half 2 of the 4 popsicle sticks. These will create the arches of your heart. Hot glue gun the abrasive edges at the top to form a point. From there grab the two regular sized popsicle sticks and hot clue gun to the outsides to finish off your heart shape

2. Hot Glue Gun your Mini Clothespin onto the bottom point of your heart. Apply pressure to ensure it has a strong connection.

3. If using greenery apply that onto some areas around the heart, you can see in my final photo that I sparingly used mine just in a few places around the heart shape, not everywhere.

4. Apply florals on top of the greenery and popsicle sticks to fully cover the wood, or as desired.

5. Lay out your ribbon and place the hearts along with the desired places, allowing you to see and create a similar distance between each heart before fastening. Once arranged, hot glue gun each heart into place. Let set.

6. Hang up in your home aind some of your favorite photos and/or drawings and add attach them with the mini clothespins.

  • We got crafty and turned our Nesquik container into a monster piggy bank! Ezra sure had fun getting crafty, I got to sit back and watch 😊. Of course I tried to be a funny mom by shaking his monster’s hand 😊. Our time crafting was also enjoyed with a healthy snack of fruit!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
We are hoping that we inspired you to get creative too! See a little behind the scenes of our creation in my stories and then head to the Nesquik Imagination contest to submit your craft creation for your chance to win 1 of 4 $500 prize packs. We've got a full summer ahead of us and I'm sure some of you mama's are looking for something to do, so here it is! PS go ahead and take our piggy bank idea as the starting point for your contest entry. Good luck!⁠⠀

I've been working hard on living a healthier lifestyle and exercising more but I think it's also important to find balance and indulge in delicious treats every now and then.⁠⠀

Made with high quality ingredients and only 80-90 calories per serving (125 ml), @Breyers delights gives me the delicious taste I've been craving. Visit the link in my bio to learn more about the new flavours and try them out for yourself! #Breyers #BreyersPartner #Ad

I teamed up with @lisa.pineda.fit to put together some morning stretches to start your day on a positive note. I am IN LOVE with the feature, would love it if you grabbed an issue or checked it out online, also swipe right to see two of the cutest photos of Evelyn and my mom stretching it out that @juliechristinephotography snapped just as we were getting started (I may have given them matching hairstyles too )
  • This is the first summer where I haven't worried about having all the kids home, the no naps and everyone potty trained has definitely helped with that!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I also know that having ALL THE SNACKS on hand when we head out for adventures is KEY! Summer Days is back at @shell which means you get 10 Bonus AIR MILES when you buy any 2 snacks or 2 drinks. Next weekend is the FIRST weekend this summer we actually don't have plans!!⁠⠀

  • The other week @lovinglittlesblog and I were invited to participate in a black box cooking competition put on by @whitespot_restaurants and @eatdrinkbuybc in support of a charity of our choice. We competed against 8 other teams and created a pecan crusted chicken stuffed with goat cheese and fresh local blueberries. You guys.... it was GOOOOOD! But, there were lots of amazing dishes created that afternoon and even though we didn't win we were still able to donate $200 to the charity of our choice, @bcwomens.

Fun fact: White Spot and Triple O's serve more than 49,000 pounds of fresh blueberries in their menu items, all from local farmers across BC. That's a lot of blueberries and a lot of local love! Starting today blueberries have returned to all White Spot and Triple O's locations but are only available for a limited time while Mother Nature allows. We got to try their fresh BC blueberry milkshake and fresh BC blueberry pie this afternoon, still drooling.

  • Hello Buddha•Full friends. Happy weekend 🙌🏻🙌🏻 If you have time you should head over to @shopwillowbrook and the @buddhafullprovisions pop-up bus for a unique foodie experience! They are here today and tomorrow from 11AM-6PM for all your plant-based & vegan food needs. Soooo good! The kids slurped on some smoothies, and I enjoyed their Açai bowl up on the top of the bus as the summer sun radiated down. I guess you could say the whole experience is designed for a Budda-full life 😉  #ad #shopwillowbrook
