Easy DIY Valentine Bunting

4 Materials
1 Hour
Rolls of checked burlap ribbon make this bunting garland easy to make. With an added stitched yarn heart, it becomes a sweet Valentine Day's home decor accent.
You'll need a 6" width roll of checked burlap ribbon, no wire edge. Some pink yarn that is fairly thin and a large eyed needle will create the hearts. The garland bunting will be strung on simple twine; I used a natural cream color.
Cut lengths of the 6" checked burlap ribbon into 8" lengths. I chose to cut in the middle of the darker checks and be consistent, so each bunting piece will match. Cut as many pieces as you want on your garland.
Fold each piece in 1/2 top to bottom and crease fold. Fold width wise to find middle and cut from outside corner to middle at a shallow angle. Don't crease this fold.
To add stitched heart to some of the pieces, hand draw a small heart with a pencil. You can add them to every piece, or just have a few with hearts on like I did.
Thread the needle with the pink yarn and knot the end. Use a simple satin stitch to create the heart; just up and down to span the width of the heart. Then do the 2 humps of the heart separately at the end.
When you are done, or when you need to get a new piece of yarn, finish off by pulling the end through the stitches on the back.
Fold your bunting pieces over a length of twine and pin closed. Leave a little space in between so you can slide them if you want. Sew around the bottom three sides, leaving 1/4" at top for twine. If you don't sew, you could also use fabric glue. For more tips and pictures, check my full blog post HERE.
