DIY Ruffled Burlap Valentines Love Banner - VINTAGE ROMANCE STYLE

DIY Ruffled Burlap Valentines Love Banner





 With Valentine's just around the corner...here is a short & sweet tutorial for my Ruffled Burlap Banner!

I used this same tutorial for my ruffled burlap fall banner tutorial so thats's why it has fall pics!

SUPPLIES:

1 yard burlap
sewing machine
glue gun
scissors
red cardstock or whatever color you want!
silhouette machine
and THAT ITS!
 1. Start out by cutting burlap into 2 1/2 inch strips.

I cut mine the length of 1 yard so I used 2 strips.

If you are using 1/2 yard try 4 strips. They will shrink when you ruffle.



I then sewed the strips together by width so it made one continuous strip.
run your burlap through the sewing machine in the center of your strip. I didn't use a ruffler foot so I did all the ruffle by hand. You want to bunch as you go and sew over the little bunches.
This will be what your ruffle strip will look like.
(there is 1 continuous strip here folded to make 4 just for picture)
Cut out 4 triangles the size and exact triangle shape you'd like in proportion with the ruffle strip.
  Iron your burlap pieces
Then glue gun your triangles to the bottom edge of your ruffle. Make sure to space them out perfectly leaving room on the side to pin up. You can also sew, your choice!
Use your silhouette or hand cut out your letters. I chose to use  cardstock. It was the fastest thing to use.

Then lay out your letters on each triangle and hot glue the carstock letters to the burlap...

and then your done! Super easy right? and looks super cute!

Here is what the FALL BANNER looked like...


and now use it for Valentine's Day!

You can make it say whatever you want and it can be as long as you want!
