Hi there! My name is Laura and I’m so excited to be contributing on Saved By Love Creations! Today I will be sharing with you a super easy Valentine’s Day craft.
All you need to make this lovely Burlap Valentine Banner is some scrap book paper, a few burlap hearts, a roll of burlap, some baker’s twine, scissors and a glue gun. Basically any crafters essentials!
The first step was to make my hearts. I used my burlap hearts as a guide for tracing my hearts on the scrap book paper.
After I cut out my hearts it was time to make my individual burlap banner. I cut my my first burlap banner at 7 inches long. I then folded it in half and cut at an angle to make the triangle cut. To make sure all the entire banner was cut to the same size, I used this one as a guide for cutting.
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 burlap banners to three per row.
I took the twine an laid it on the counter and placed my burlap pieces on top. I just used my scissors to space them out. (I’m a very hard-core crafter, can you tell?)
When I got everything spaced just right, I placed the twine inside the lip and a little hot glue and then pressed it close.
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 love how the banner adds a subtle touch of Valentine decor to my home without going over the top.
