Writing this blog post to share this tutorial with you will take far longer than it took me to make this adorable Valentine’s Day banner! This 10 Minute DIY Pom Pom and Heart Valentine Banner is so simple to make – you only need a few items, there’s very little mess involved (can I get an Amen?!), and it really does only take about 10 minutes to put together.
I got the adorable pom poms and felt hearts in the Target dollar bins (as of January 2018), and I got the baker’s twine in a pack of 4 for $1 at our dollar store. We’re talking pocket change here, friends! How awesome is that?!
And I have more pom poms, felt hearts, and twine left over that I could easily make another banner or two.

Here’s what you need:
- Valentine-colored pom pom balls (again, I got mine in the dollar bin at Target, but if they don’t have them anymore by the time you’re making this, you can easily use these from Target, or you can get similar ones on Amazon or at Hobby Lobby)
- Felt hearts (dollar bin at Target, or they have TONS of options on Amazon!)
- Large needle with a large eye (this is a must) – I got mine at Hobby Lobby and have used them to make SEVERAL similar banners
- Baker’s twine (I got mine at my local dollar store)
- Pair of scissors
First, cut two pieces of twine to your desired length, adding a couple of inches to each to make room for you to add a knotted loop at each end. Put one loop at ONE end of each twine. You need to leave one end open on each so you can thread the needle.
Thread the needle (which will be the easiest it’s ever been to thread a needle…the eye hole is so big!).
Then start threading the pom poms and felt hearts on. That needle goes right through both – you shouldn’t have any issues.
You can thread the hearts so that you don’t see the baker’s twine in the middle (like I did below), or thread it so you do have the baker’s twine running through the middle (see one of my pictures of the completed banner – I did it both ways).
Then just scoot ’em on down the twine and keep adding in the pattern you want.
Once you get to the end, you’ll want to leave some room so you can tie another little loop.
Tie the loop, and then scoot the last pom pom down to the end so it covers the knot.
And there you have it! So adorable!
Such a fun Valentine’s Day craft! As you can tell, I made two banners – one a little longer than the other so they’re a little tapered – and then just hung them up by the loops on push pins.
I think it looks cute both ways – with the baker’s twine running through the middle and with it just on the ends.
Ok, I’m off to make another adorable Valentine’s Day banner from papers I found in the Target dollar bin! Stay tuned – I’ll be sharing that one with you next week. It’ll be about as easy as this one was to assemble! 🙂
