String Words Wall-Hanging DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

“Love is in the air” literally – when you hang this cursive banner. Let someone know you love them! Using different shades of pinks and reds adds a Valentine’s flair, but you can use any colors you’d like. Wouldn’t “you are my sunshine” in golden and pale yellow yarns be so sweet in a newborn’s nursery? If you have extra sting, make additional words to decorate valentine gifts. Or write the recipient’s name for an amazing name tag! The words are easy to affix to a package with glue or washi tape. PS – How perfect would this banner look paired with this?
