I have a lot of my readers ask me how to create the Burlap Garland Banner that I did for my daughters first birthday. (you can read the whole post here).
I love decorating for every holiday, even if it something small. Here is a small burlap garland that I made for Valentine’ Day that is simple and easy for you to make, even with the kiddos!
This is pretty easy to make. You just have to have some of these items lying around, or go to your local Michaels Craft Store and get them.
Items You Will Need:
Hot Glue Gun and Glue sticks
After gathering everything you need, cut the heart using a template that I created. You can download the Heart Cutout here.
Use the heart to create one, and then I just kept tracing and cutting out the other 3 using they same heart. I wanted to do the word LOVE, so it was easy to only have to cut out 4 hearts.
Lay all the cutouts on a piece of newspaper, or whatever is easiest for you to grab to not have the craft paint stick onto your surface you are working with.
Get your stencils, paint and brushes ready. And paint away!
Your little ones can even help make the final touches on the paint!
After getting all the stencils painted on the burlap, wait for about 10 minutes to dry. Then line them up and get your hot glue gun and twine ready.
Wait for it to dry and then hang it up anywhere in your house you would like!!
