Description

Show your love with this ecofriendly banner of paper hearts, which would look perfect hanging across a doorway or window or draped along a mantle. Hang it to celebrate a special event with family and friends or simply brighten your home. Each colourful heart has been die cut from a one-of-a-kind ecoprint I created on watercolour paper using flowers and leaves from my garden

Ecoprinting, which is also called botanical contact printing, is the process of capturing the natural dyes and pigments in leaves and flowers on paper using heat and pressure. All the colors you see come from plants – I don’t use any synthetic dyes, inks or paints – and every print is unique.

Each banner is 8 feet long and includes at least 18 hearts, which are approximately 3.25 inches wide, strung on twine. I’ve left plenty of twine at each end in case you want to join garlands together. These garlands will last a long time and can be reused if kept dry and out of the sun. Every banner I make is one-of-a-kind so the one you receive will not be exactly the one pictured, but it will be just as colourful.

Handcrafted with care by Peta Bailey in Kingston, Ontario, Canada.
