Easy Map Heart Bunting PLUS 14 Super Amazing V-Day Projects {$140 Target Card giveaway!}

I am so excited today to have paired up with 13 other bloggers for a special Valentine’s Day Themed Project Hop. I am so impressed by the beautiful projects they have to share…


And today I am here to share some easy DIY Valentine’s Day décor: a Map Heart Bunting and lettering. This project added a fresh and cheery feel to the old window in our living room and I just love the way it turned out.

After adding some cheery color to our living/dining room with out Valentine’s Day Mantel décor the other day I wanted to carry a little bit more of the same over into the other half of the room without going OTT (over-the-top) with V-Day décor. So I whipped up this little heart map bunting in a matter of minutes and used it and some lettering cut out of cute scrapbook paper and maps to dress up the old window frame on our living room gallery wall.

Here is how I made the bunting:

I used maps that I cut out of an old atlas. I cut them into a bunting shape using my paper cutter and scissors. Then I cut some little circles and hearts out of pretty scrapbook paper and glued them onto the buntings. Then I glued the bunting flags together using some twine and my hot glue gun. Done and ready to hang! Next I cut some letters out of the same maps and scrapbook paper to create the lettering you see at the bottom of the window frame.

Done! I love the little bit of brightness it added to what was feeling like a pretty neutral winter living room- and the daffodils and primulas warm my heart every time I look at them.

I love the way it works so well with the cheery Valentine’s Mantel that I shared the other day…

    1. Thanks Brandi- after being pretty ‘neutral’ with my décor in January (I guess I think of blue and white as neutral) – it felt good to get a little more color injected with the V-Day décor… trying to decide where to go next! (lol)

    1. I love maps too… you can get so lost looking at all the little places that would be so interesting to explore in person one day:)

    1. Thank you Shannah:) I have been trying to think of how to re-work it after V-Day because I really love it too!

    1. Hi Allison! Old Atlases in your basement!? That is a gold mine!! I love using old maps for lots of crafty projects- I just used a bunch in my boys’ bedroom for a cool project I will be sharing soon… and I have used them to decoupage on letters as well (like the large letters from Michaels- we have map letters of our initials hanging on the wall in our dining room). But the bunting was a quick and easy use too. So glad you came by Allison- hope you are doing well:) Have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks so much for that great compliment and the pin Laura!! Projects around here have to be pretty simple or I won’t have time to do them. I am working on some bigger projects these days too… can’t wait to share those. Thanks for coming by – and I hope you have a great weekend friend!!

    1. I wish I could go more often- our closest one is an hour away. I might get myself into a little trouble if I went to often though…. good luck on the giveaway!

    1. I agree Dani- and I love the Canadiana stuff they have in their new Canadian stores- I got a cute little ‘beaver canoe’ there recently that I love. I even paid full price which is not like me, I must have reaaaaallly liked it!

  1. Oh my goodness…my hubby and I LOVE maps and I’m so inspired by this bunting you created…especially on that rustic window. Wow, Krista! You knocked it out of the park. And thanks for the fab giveaway. I’m a sucker for anything Target…especially those dollar bins! They’re like my kryptonite.

    1. Aw thanks Lauren- you’re too sweet. It was a quick and easy little V-day craft which was exactly what I needed it to be…. we are knee deep in some bigger projects that I can’t wait to share. I LOVE your nautical room – we are using some serious nautical influences for our boy’s bedroom too. Have a fabulous weekend!

  2. I have loads of windows I could use for this project…I love Target for their great coordinating colors for the home!!

    1. Hi Christy! Thanks- the bunting was crazy easy. The site was a little more work:) I got some help with switching over to a Genesis Child theme- this one is Delightful by Restored 316. I looked around for quite a while before choosing it- hope I made the right choice:) Have a fabulous weekend friend!

    1. Thank you- it feels good to have a little color in our living room again. I love their clearance prices too! Good luck with the giveaway:)

  3. I love Target because they have affordable lovely things!!! I can’t describe how much I love it but it would make my LIFE if I got it!

    1. Thanks Tara – quick and easy was the key to this project…. we are knee deep in some bigger stuff that I can’t wait to share:) Have a fabulous weekend friend!

    1. Thank you Becky! It felt good to add a bit of yellow back in – I find it so cheery during the long winter:) Glad to be on the hop with you as well!

    1. Thank you so much Melissa! It adds a cheery little touch to our living room and I am loving it too:) Have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks Abby:) I actually had gone pretty neutral for January (since I consider blue a neutral- lol) but it was fun to add a little more color in again! I can’t wait for spring! We had -9 here yesterday (that is around 15 F) and we NEVER get that kind of cold – or rarely, at least… so warmth and sunshine sounds pretty great about now (vacation anyone??). Have a great weekend!!

    1. I love maps too Chelsea… and globes… I find I can get lost in looking at them because it is always interesting to see where places actually are (compared to where you visualize them in your head)… It can be funny when you collect them from garage sales and thrift shops though because they are pretty out of date!

    1. Thank you Jill! It feels happy and welcoming again – I love color and was thrilled to add some springy color again after a pretty neutral January. Spring is on it’s way, right?! Glad to be on this great hop with you!

    1. Hi April! Thanks – I am pretty happy with the redesign- just a few tweaks needed! Have a fabulous (wintery) weekend!

  4. I really think that Target has such a great selection of items, especially their home section. Lots of unusual gifts and ideas!

    1. I wish ours was close enough to visit twice a week! It takes me an hour to get there (though that is probably a good thing for my pocket book). Thanks for your sweet comments! Good luck on the giveaway:)

    1. I agree Diana- and even better when those products are on clearance. I can’t believe the prices they have sometimes!! Good luck:)

  5. I love Target for so many reasons! I get my dog’s medication at a decent price there, I can buy any groceries I need while there and I love the Nate Berkus and other home design collections.
