DIY Rustic Farmhouse Happy Fall Sign

rustic fall sign

Summer is winding down and Fall is just around the corner.  Fall is my most favorite season of all.  Even though I live in Florida and it’s still pretty hot, it’s just not the sweltering, take your breath away hot. You know the type that causes you to produce a full on sweat just walking to your mail box.  Yeah, that’s Summer in Florida, so I welcome fall with open arms. Also, the smell in the air changes, evenings are cooler and I find most of my reminiscing happens in Fall.

With Fall comes the need to decorate my home with all kinds of “Fallish” things.  I still follow a neutral color scheme even in fall and I really love the rustic farmhouse / rustic chic style. This means any of the decor I choose or make will be that type of style. Since I love crafting I thought I would get to crafting! My first “Fall” project is this rustic farmhouse Happy Fall sign. I just love how it turned out.

It’s perfectly imperfect and I think it looks great on top of my freshly painted storage drawer dresser.

Valentine’s Decorations | DIY Felt Heart Banner

felt heart banner instructions

Valentine’s is just around the corner.  Just letting you know in case you haven’t noticed all the Valentine goodies that are now adorning the store shelves.  This means that there is another special occasion that we can decorate for.  Is there really a better way to decorate than with your own homemade decorations?  I think not.

You can start the DIY projects off with making this easy and adorable felt heart banner.  I’ve made mine and already have it hanging across my dining room window.  You can hang it across a window, a fireplace mantle, bookcase, or even across a mirror.  This banner would be a great Valentine’s photography prop as well. My daughter loved it so much she is making one to go in her bedroom.

Here is a closer look at the hearts.

Materials Needed:
• Felt material in your color choices – DIY Polyester Felt 50 Pcs 10x10cm/4x4inch, Nonwoven Fabric Sheet for Craft Work Type A Super Soft Squares, About 1.5mm Thick
• Heart Pattern
• Embroidery Floss – Soledi Cross Stitch Floss 50 Skeins Premium Rainbow Color Embroidery Floss Sewing Threads
• Twine / String – Hemptique Baker’s Twine Mini Spool Spring Fling, 6-Pack
• Scissors
• Sewing Needle
• Yarn Needle – Susan Bates Steel Yarn Knitting Needle, 2-3/4-Inch, 2 Per Package
• Straight Pins – Singer Pearlized Head Straight Pins, 150-Count

felt heart banner instructions

Step 1: Make a heart pattern then trace heart pattern onto felt material. You will need 2 hearts for each heart. Trace as many hearts as you will need.

Step 2: From your felt material, cut out 2 hearts for as many hearts as you will need. This will be the front and back side of one felt heart.

Step 3: Thread needle with white embroidery floss, place the 2 heart cut outs on top on each other and pin together with straight pins.

Step 4: Sew the 2 hearts together with your stitch about 1/4 from edge and with a 1/4 spacing between stitches. Do not sew completely around the heart as to leave spacing to stuff the heart. Once you stuff the heart you will stitch up the hole. You can sew your stitch with stitching the thread around the edges (not sure of technical name of stitch) as in the photo below or you can straight stitch. This will be your preference.

Step 5: Stuff the heart with your filling. I have used 100% Polyester filling.

Step 6: Thread yarn needle with twine.  I used 60″ of twine. Do not tie twine ends in a knot, let the twine hang down a couple of inches as seen in photo.

Step 7: Insert the yarn needle with twine through one side of the heart towards the top making sure to go between the 2 heart layers and through the stuffing and come out the other side at the same position that you went through on the opposite side. Repeat this step until you have threaded the twine through all of your hearts.

Step 8:  Once you have all of your hearts on your twine, then you will hang your banner up and enjoy how adorable it is!
