The Easiest Burlap Heart Tutorial

Written By Rashad Merrell on Wednesday, January 30, 2013 | 2:29 AM

Love is patient...and not always so kind... 
especially when you pull
 on that darn vine.
The poison vine that is... the one called Poison Oak. 
Even pretty little burlap hearts with red arrows can't defend against it and all it's itchy, irritable side affects. 
If you are wondering what in the world I am talking about... I pulled off a vine on this tree while trying to capture some pictures that contained poison oak.

Supplies:
A plastic heart shape with red tinsely garland- got mine at hobby lobby
Ribbon garland- I used a 10 foot roll
Instructions:

Step 1- Remove the red stuff from the heart and put away and save for another project that requires glitz and glamour
Step 2 - For this project I cut my burlap garland in long strips so it was easier to work with. Take one end and begin weaving in between the the plastic frame.
Step 3- As you pull through your burlap leave a little at the end and don't pull tight or pull all the way through. This is how your burlap will stay in place. Although I have never secured it onto the frame with anything, you probably could use a twisty tie or a piece of wire to secure your end.
Step 4: Continue weaving the loops around the frame. Your pattern should be the outer edge, middle and inner edge and repeat going back and forth. Your loops should be the same size. You will fluff and move around your burlap when you are finished.
Step 5: When you are done , take your scissors and cut off and long pieces from the back and any stray strings from the front. Fluff out and move the burlap around so that the plastic heart frame is not showing. To hang, I put some jute string through the hole and tied. 
The things we do for love... the things we do for love.
