My Valentine’s Day Burlap Banner takes about 30 minutes to make from start to finish! All you need is some scrap book paper, a few burlap hearts, a roll of burlap, some baker’s twine, scissors and a glue gun. Basically the standard crafters essentials! 🙂
After the burlap was cut, I folded the top of each piece over about an inch to create a lip for the twine.
Next it was time to measure my twine. I knew that I wanted to do three rows in a zig-zag type of pattern. So I decided to even out the burlap banners to three per row.
I took the twine, laid it on the counter and then placed my burlap pieces on top. I just used my scissors to space them out. (I’m a very hard-core crafter, can’t you tell?)
When I got everything spaced just right, I placed the twine inside the lip and added a little hot glue. I then pressed it closed. I flipped the banner over and then attached my hearts with some hot glue as well.
That’s pretty much it. I just repeated those step to make all three rows. I chose to hang the banner on my DIY Eagan Pottery Barn mirror.
