When Lori was here, we decided to do this darling craft, inspired by the picture below. Lori already had the burlap, and I came up with the string and Elmer's glue, so we just needed to purchase red glitter.
|Our inspiration here. She had a printout for the banner size. We used that, but otherwise made everything else up ourselves.|
|We printed the heart from a generic one found on the internet - we could've drawn one easily, but we were looking for a symmetrical heart for this guy.|
|Lori cut burlap...|
|Glue heart, pre-glitter, measured about 1 inch above the apex of the banner to point of the heart.|
|Lots of glitter - but we reused the excess over and over on each banner, so none was wasted.|
|Folded over and pressed. We just dabbed the hot glue wherever it appeared necessary to adhere.|
|On Lori's mantel.|
|She accidentally grabbed my banner too, when she packed up, so she decorated Mur-Man's room. It's on LOAN this year.|
Have you made plans for the 14th yet? What's your decor?
