Have you seen these beautiful Valentine’s banners made with burlap?
I love them and was itching to get my craft on but I didn’t have any burlap hanging around the house. I DID have drop cloth and I had a feeling that I could make it work.
It was so easy. Hint…you need sharp scissors or a fabric cutter. I started with dull scissors and was ready to scream within 5 minutes into the project. I finally remembered I had one of those fabric cutter things that would make it easier.
I made a free hand “pattern” on a piece of paper and used that to trace directly on the drop cloth.
After they were all cut, I ironed them to make them nice and smooth then I ironed a faux seam to fold over the bakers twine. My glue gun was MIA so I scotch taped, yes taped the cloth to the bakers twine…we will see how it holds up.
Next, I traced a heart from my computer screen to a piece of paper. I cut it out using a sharp knife and voila and instant stencil. I then dabbed the red paint on the cloth and let it dry, then finally taped it to the bakers twine and it was ready to hang!
