Burlap and Felt Bunting

I decided that my mantel needed some bunting love.  I love the texture that the burlap and felt had together and that is where it all began. I put them together for a burlap and felt bunting.

I started by cutting out some burlap rectangles and some felt hearts.  I used the old trick- fold the felt in half and cut out one side of the heart to make a symmetrical shape- and then used that heart as a pattern for the rest of them.

Next, I top stitched the felt hearts onto the burlap.

I found some brown grosgrain ribbon in my stash and used it to sew the burlap to.  I simply folded the burlap over the ribbon until it was a square shape and then sewed straight across.

I decided to do every other square with a heart on it and I continued sewing until I ran out of ribbon space.  Then I hung it up on my mantel to enjoy!

I couldn’t just stop there though.  I loved the hearts and decided that I needed a banner up on my wooden sign.  I simply cut out a zillion hearts (at least that’s what it felt like) and then sewed them together.
This picture may be just a little bit cryptic.  I intentionally didn’t show you the other side of my mantel.  Why, you may ask?  Well, I had one other thing in mind for the other side that I didn’t want to show you until it was finished.  I didn’t have the right light to take other pictures once it was finished.  Check back in a couple of days for the complete mantel picture. 🙂 Plus, I will show you my mini mailboxes up close and personal like.

I hope you like my lovey dovey mantel as much as I do.  I really feel like the buntings add so much fun to a space.  And don’t forget to go link up your love projects on Gwen’s blog!

Love the buntings Jonie, especially the burlap one! I like the idea of leaving half of the squares blank. Looks just lovely! 🙂

[…] for bringing it that day!)  I also decided that I needed one more little thing and threw in my felt heart bunting that I made two years ago.  You can go check out the tutorial for that to make one for yourself. […]
