Romantic Valentine’s Banner

Valentine Banner

When I think of a romantic scene I think of a movie set in the Victorian Era.  No doubt it wasn’t that romantic for the everyday person in those days, but it’s my daydream so everyone lives in beautiful Victorian houses with lace and roses and gilded doors.  Not to mention the gorgeous uncomfortable gowns all hand stitched with lace and beads.

I brought that overall lacy, pink, romantic idealism into this Valentine’s banner.

To make this banner you will about four of those little quilting bundles. or four 1/4 yard pieces.  I used leftovers so that would work as well as long as they are coordinating.

Yard of iron on interfacing

Coordinating beads both small for embellishment and large for the flower centers and banner string.

Twine or ribbon, darning needle.

Sewing needle, thread

Scissors and a hot glue gun.


Cut out two large hearts for each banner piece

Cut one large heart from the interfacing

Cut out two small hearts for each banner piece

Cut one small heart from the interfacing

Cut out six circles for each banner piece

Here is the link to my simple hand drawn pattern.a

Assembling the Hearts

Iron all your cut fabric pieces.

Place the large heart good side down, place the interfacing on top and the second piece of material good side up.  Iron according to instructions.  (Mine was ten seconds.)

Repeat this process for all the remaining hearts both large and small.

Assemble the heart backing place the small heart on top of the large and start to sew and bead them into place.


Sew around the outside of the small heart adding a bead on every stitch.  Space the beads as evenly as possible.  I used my baby finger to measure the spacing.

Repeat this for all the other banner pieces.

The flowers are super easy to put together and once the pieces they only take a minute to assemble.

Heat the glue gun and be careful its easy to get burnt putting the petals together.“

1. Place two circles one on top of the other.

Take four circles of material, take each one and fold it in half and then into quarters.  Glue it in the center where the point is to hold it.  Make three more.

Make sure each petal faces the open side towards you.  Glue each one in the center of the flower, overlapping is fine.

Finally glue a bead or button in the middle of the flower.

Place on heart and sew into place.

You can leave the hearts as they are or add extra embellishments like buttons, extra beads or lace.

Attaching the String

For five hearts I used 6 feet of white string. With a darning needle thread on five beads. Sew one long stitch in the back of the heart.  Make sure not to pierce the front of the heart and keep your stitch as level as possible.

Pull the thread through the heart, attach five more beads,  repeat until finished ending with five beads.

Tie a noose knot on each end of the string,  this will allow you to easily adjust the length of your banner.

    Truly romantic ideas of banner ad design for lovely valentines. Thank you so so much for your great ideas.

  2. That’s so romantic and gorgeous and pretty Leanna and the banner would look perfect in a Victorian drawing room. I can just picture the admiring glances it would get from all the ladies 😉

  3. These are the cutest most romantic hearts ever Leanna! You really thought of everything when you added all of those lovely little details to the banner! So so pretty!

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Hi Katrin: The theme for the link up was Bling on the Love, I had found several kinds of pretty pink beads in a spot sale at Michaels, more than a year ago.

      When browsing through my stash I knew the beads would add that little bit of bling I wanted.

      I am proud of how this little banner turned out. I appreciate you taking the time to share the love. Have a good weekend. Leanna

  4. Very fun idea. Thanks for the inspiration.

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Hi Caryn. Victorian style is the most romantic of styles in my opinion. Thank you for commenting. Leanna

  5. Such an elegant, detailed craft. I’d gladly display this in my home!

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Hi Dana: I am glad you appreciate it. As the actual hearts are layered using interfacing its doesn’t take a significant amount of hand sewing. I am proud of this little project thank you for commenting.

  6. I love the colors in the banner. Very romantic.

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Hi Jody. I was trying for a romantic Victorian feel, so I used tiny beads and lace to make it look feminine.

      Thank you for commenting.

  7. Very nice job on the fabric hearts! Very delicate!

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Hi Jody: Glad to know you like them. The colours and little tiny beads are what make them look delicate. They are easy to do though.

      Thank you for commenting. I love receiving feedback.

  8. Such a pretty way to start and celebrate Valentine’s Day

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Thank you Rosanne. I did much more decorating and celebrating for Valentines when my children were around. This is a nice piece that can be easily stored and reused next year.

      Thanks for commenting. Leanna

  9. Audrey Stewart says:

    I love that these are pastels. Pink is my favorite color.

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Right on Audrey. Pink is so feminine, fresh and soft looking. Especially soft pink its such a calming, gentle colour. I have always loved pink as well.

      Thanks for commenting. Leanna

  10. Ashley B. says:

    Sooo pretty! In love.

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Too cute a pun Ashley. I am in love with it too lol.

      It didn’t take much effort to put it together and it stores easily to keep for next year.

      Glad you love it. Leanna

  11. Betsy Barnes says:

    These look so beautiful, would really add to our Valentine decorations!

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Thank you. Soft pink is my favorite colour, but I pretty much love all pinks. I am really excited to be doing this bling themed blog hop. I really enjoy looking at sparkles and bling and Valentines suits it.

  12. Christy G. says:

    What a sweet banner. I love the colors. Thanks for posting!

  13. Oh those are so beautiful! I love the softer color of pink!

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Thank you Laura: Soft pearlish pink is my favorite colour. I love it especially paired with golds and whites.

      I appreciate you taking the time to comment. Leanna

  14. That’s so sweet! I love the layered fabrics and the 3D effect.

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Hi Erlene: I am happy with how it turned out and I haven’t seen any beaded banners.

      I really enjoyed your Valentine post about the fortune cookie. It was so cute, and that shape of pillow would be ultra cozy comfy as well.

  15. Mary Gardner says:

    This banner would look great across my fireplace. Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Hi Mary: I hope you make yourself one. It took me to evenings because I wasn’t concentrating on it. I was puttering and beading while hubs was watching TV. You have plenty of time to finish one before Valentines.

  16. Dana Rodriguez says:

    I love how soft and romantic this is. Perfect for Valentine’s Day!

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Hi Dana: Thank you. I am not much of a romantic but I certainly love all the pinks, plums, reds and bling of Valentines decor.

  17. Very nice, love the colours in this
    craft. Looks, romantic and would
    make a great gift to someone you

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      I had not considered it as a gift, but you certainly could give it to someone. Wouldn’t it be pretty all wrapped up in tissue paper with a pink bow and white paper.

      What a great idea.


  18. This banner would be perfect over the fireplace!

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      I think so too Natalie. I think it would cute in a little girl or teenagers bedroom.

      Thank you for commenting. Have a good weekend. Leanna

  19. So cute. I love the light pink.

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Icy soft pink is my favorite colour. It says “girl” lol.

      Thank you for commenting. Leanna.

  20. Wow this is such a fun idea to make with my kids, it will be so pretty hanging in our home. Thank you for sharing.

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Hi. This would be great for kids with the exception of hot gluing the flowers.

      They could cut the circles but I find the glue too hot for little ones to put them together. Not sure how old your children are, but I often make them by sewing them together and making the center with a button instead of a bead. I hope you have fun with it. Leanna

  21. oooh I love everything romantic and pretty, and make fabric flowers, so this is perfect for me. I’d love to try it – soooo cute!!

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Hi Rosie: That’s great. I doesn’t need to be fancy fabrics, just soft tones. I think you could even do paper flowers if you wanted to.

      Thank you for commenting. Leanna

  22. This is the cutest project yet, this banner is great.

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Hi Sara: That’s really nice of you to say. This year I am much more into Valentines then I ever have been. It is fun doing all these girlish crafts and sharing them.

      Thanks for commenting.

  23. Favorite project out of all these lovely blogs goes to you! I adore these! Just found my weekend project, I think I’ll make these for the cubicles at work!

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      That’s wonderful, thank you for saying so Angelica.

      This would work well for a work cubicle. A little pink bling. If your pinning it off of a pin board you could add battery lights and hide them behind one of the hearts.

      Enjoy your weekend. Please contact me and let me know how it turns out. Leanna

  24. This is so pretty and romantic too. I love it! I share your vision of romance. I bet those dresses were horrible to wear but beautiful none the less.

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Hi Shirley: Modern romance just doesn’t touch me the way the Victorian period stuff does. Pink lace, corsets, sweeping skirts, and of course pearls.

      Have a great weekend lady. The blog hop is awesome.

  25. Cynthia C says:

    What an adorable decorating idea. Simple and elegant.

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      I am thrilled with your description of the banner as elegant. What a lovely thing to say.

      I very much appreciate it. Leanna

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Thank you Marci I haven’t made alot of garlands, but I really love them so sure I will end up making more.

      Have a good weekend. Leanna

  26. Judy Thomas says:

    I love the hearts! Cute and adorable, a lovely decoration

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Valentines goes with hearts like Easter does bunnies lol. This project was fun to make because it is so obviously feminine.

      Thank you for commenting.

      Have a good weekend.

  27. Omg that looks pretty !

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Thank you. The beads added the blind that I was hoping for.

      Happy Valentines Day Harini.

  28. Beautiful and so dainty looking. I like the Victorian look too, sometimes no matter what I set out to make it ends up looking Victorian.

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Oh really? Isn’t that wonderful. I can imagine how pretty and feminine your home is.

      Are most of the things you make Pink? Or do you use other colours?

  29. shannon fowler says:

    This is such a great idea for decorations. I really want to give it a shot, but I have a feeling mine won’t turn out this well.

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      It was pretty easy to put together. I hope you do try it and if you have any questions feel free to email me.

      Happy Valentines Leanna

  30. Sigh. Romantic scene. Definitely not this year but maybe one day!

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      I did a post for a Boyfriend in a Box Amy. I would like to suggest treating yourself to one.

      Hugs and warm thoughts Leanna.

  31. Love the light pink hearts. All the light colors make it feel fresh and really pretty.

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Thank you. I am glad you like it. I was trying for a make it Victorian romantic.

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Hi Lisa: I was late to the banner trend and I absolutely love them They add a little cheer to a room without adding clutter.

      I decorated my home in red for Christmas and pink is my favorite colour so I went with the pink.

      Thank you for commenting. Leanna

  32. How cute! Hanging it on the mirror is a great idea.

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      I love mirrors especially in the dark days of winter. I expect my grand daughters for a visit soon and they will likely use it a night light.

      Creating these feminine frilly items has made Valentines fun.

      Happy Valentines Day to you. Leanna

  33. This is so pretty. And delicate. It really is romantic and perfect for Valentine’s Day.

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Hi Debra: It’s delicate but not fragile at all. I can fold it up into a ziploc bag for storage without any problems.

      I know Valentines is for men as well, but for me the decor etc is feminine. Hubs gets a special dessert he’s happy.

      Thanks for commenting. Leanna

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Hi Michelle. Thank you, that is the overall feel I wanted. I love period movies and books.

      Thank you for commenting. Leanna

  34. Oh I love the soft and romantic shades you used to create this charming banner. Have a wonderful week!

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Soft pink is my favorite colour. It’s wonderful that it’s such a perfect colour for Valentine’s day. I hope you enjoy our Blog hop.

      I read about your little pup. It hard when a family member gets ill. Hope he has a miracle.

  35. Lindsay Bade says:

    My 14 year old daughter loves to sew and also loves anything to do with beads. This is a great project for her! Thank you!

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      That’s wonderful to hear. She can learn about interfacing and hand beading using even spacing. It really inexpensive to put together as well. I hope she loves doing one.
