How to make a Valentine’s Day Banner

First, print out the free printable Valentine banner template onto white card stock.

You will need to print 2 copies of the last page (the heart). You can find the free downloadable template at the end of this article.

Next, have your child color the banner! They could use colored pencils, like my daughter, or they could use crayons or markers.

Your child may want to make their own design on the hearts – mine did! They might like to make classic red hearts or a cute conversation heart design.

Color your own valentine banner

Now, it’s time to cut out the banner.

Have your child carefully cut out each of the triangles of the free printable banner. 

Cutting out banner, punch a hole in each corner

Using the hole puncher, help your child punch a hole in the top corners of each triangle.

So, each piece of the banner will have 2 holes.

Be sure to have them punch the holes away from the edges to make it more durable and to avoid rips and tears.

Next, have your child thread about 7 feet of ribbon through the holes.

I personally like the ribbon on the backside of the banner, so I had my daughter start by threading in, then out on each piece.

Create Your Own Valentine Banner (stringing the banner together)

If you are looking to jazz this banner up, you could add glitter glue, sequins, stickers, etc.

It’s your family’s project, so have fun with it! We decided to keep it simple today.

That’s it! Now it’s time to hang up your LOVE banner! We used a little tape to string it up.

I hope your kids enjoy making cute Valentine’s day banners!   Happy Valentine’s Day!
