Burlap Love Banner {Pinterest Club!}

I am on a roll with Valentine's Day crafts.  All of this red and pink is really brightening up my winter!

I am very lucky that I have friends who love to craft, too.   It's always more fun to create with a friend, right??  So some of my friends and neighbors created a little "Pinterest Club."  Basically, we find a craft (usually from Pinterest!) and attempt to recreate it.  It's a perfect time to get our kiddos together to play so we can play, too!

On Friday, we got together to recreate this burlap love banner that my friend Sara spotted on Groopdealz.  It was originally created by Auntie Lolo Crafts.

It had been a while since I dug into my burlap stash, but I "love" how this turned out!

And guess what?!  It took less than an hour to put together.  I love a quick and easy craft.

Start out by cutting 6 pennant/triangle shapes from burlap. Or try out another fabric if burlap isn't your thing!

I cut out some freezer paper stencils using my Cricut, and then ironed them onto the pennants.  I also ironed on a scrap piece of freezer paper to the back of each one to be sure the paint wouldn't bleed through.

Using a foam brush, I painted the letters black and the hearts red.  I love that it took no time at all for the paint to dry.  Like I said, a quick-and-easy craft was perfect for us today!  Especially with whining kiddos.  Yes, I'm afraid Little Man wasn't on his best behavior.

I strung all of the pennants together using thick twine. I just separated the threads a bit to create a hole and strung the twine through.

Because I have already decorated my un-mantle, I added this banner to our dresser mirror instead.

And yes, that's me in the mirror!

So just in case you still need to decorate for Love Day OR if you just want to make something fun with friends, this is the perfect craft!

I can't wait for our next craft together!

Have a great week, friends!
