Neutral Valentine Garland

I don’t know about you, but I love classic black and white decor.

It just speaks to me.

But when I add vintage items too, my heart clearly begins to flutter.

I picked up this fabric bunting at a local boutique and have been dying to use it.

Certainly a fabric bunting like this is simple to make.

Simply cut out your shape and stitch it to a length of ribbon.

And if you’re not a seamstress, you could definitely use fabric glue or even hot glue.

Another way you can get this same great look is with paper.

Scrapbook paper is an easy alternative to fabric.

And if you just want to buy one like me, try this black and white fabric triangle bunting.

Of course, you’re bunting can be any color you want.

I think red, pink or white are great options as well.

Clearly you can make the base of this valentine garland with whatever your heart desires!

Initially my thought was to add “heart” playing cards or doilies and hearts.

Then I thought it would be fun to use some vintage lace I just picked up on a recent vacation, along with vintage and rhinestone brooches.

How to Make a Vintage Inspired Valentine Garland

Supplies:

Let’s get started with this quick and easy Valentine garland!

Hang Fabric Bunting

Black and white striped fabric and black fabric buntinh hung from a command hook on fireplace mantle for Valentine garland.

First I placed a couple of command hooks under the top of my mantle.

Then I made a loop at one end of my fabric bunting and placed it on the left hook.

Black and white fabric bunting draped over one side of fireplacr mantle.

My bunting to too long for my mantle and I considered making it shorter.

However, when I draped it over the end of my mantle, I liked it!

The globe was used to secure the bunting on the right side of the mantle, while the remaining bunting drapes over the side.

I think layering garlands across the mantle is really beautiful.

So on the same command hook, I added my bead garland.

Then the right side of the bead garland is secured with the other command hook.

Embellishing Valentine Garland

To begin to embellish the Valentine garland, place 4″ doilies along with a ribbon bookmark and clip it to the black flag with a mini clothespin.

The ribbon bookmarks were a little project we did a couple of years ago.

You can see how to make them here.

On each of the three black sections of the bunting I added the doilies and ribbon bookmark.

Then on the white and black & white sections, I secure a piece of vintage lace with a brooch.

Since I’m always decorating around the TV above my mantle, I think a Valentine garland is the perfect way to add in that seasonal decor.

In addition to the candlesticks that are usually on my mantle, I added the glam gold globe.

The globe has a little saying on it that says, “Let’s be adventurous darling.”

Perfect for Valentine’s Day!

I also added a couple of mini rose heart wreaths and a strand of pearls.

Once I completed the garland, I decided to add a little more neutral Valentine decor with a No Sew Valentine Pillow Cover.
