Valentine Banner

This was a really easy and quick decoration once I made up my mind on what I was going to do.  At first I was just going to make solid hearts, then I was going to do mostly light pink but with one dark pink, and then I decided to put on some of the candy conversation heart saying on every other one, and then I just put them on all of them.
What you need: some felt, a heart shape cookie cutter, scissors, ribbon, sewing floss, and a pen. First use your heart shape cookie cutter and trace a bunch of hearts onto the felt and then cut them out. You need to cut out two hearts for every heart you want.  Then stitch some cute conversation heart sayings onto the top hearts.  I did: Q T Pie, My Baby, Hugs, Be Mine, XOXO, Sweet, Kiss Me, Dream, and Love.  I tried to stick to shorter ones because I didn't have much room on my hearts.
Then sew the bottom hearts onto the ribbon.
 
Then sew the top hearts with the sayings on them so the ribbon is sandwiched in between.
 
 I just stitched around the outside, slowly going around and around.
Then they are ready to hang!
 Don't they look cute on the fireplace!
 Happy Valentines Day!
