This easy DIY heart banner is the perfect addition to your Valentine's Day Decor.
Instructions on how to make this banner:
#1 I started out with some ribbon. This one has a linen/burlap type feel to it.
#2 I decided how long I wanted each flag on my banner to be and cut a template out. Make sure you factor in a little extra at the top to fold down over the string. Using a pencil I marked the ribbon as I went and then made all my cuts for as many flags as I wanted.
#3 Here's my stack ready for the next part.
#4 I took some rolled-up burlap and added some iron-on adhesive to the back.
#5 Trace whatever shape you want onto the back. As you can see, I used a cookie cutter to trace around to get my heart shape. Then cut out your shapes.
#6 Take one of the flags and fold the top inch or so down. Use an iron so that you get a crisp edge. Attach a strip of iron-on adhesive like I have in the picture. Remove the paper backing and iron it down onto itself. When you are done you will have a space or pocket to thread the string through, similar to a curtain. If you are really planning ahead- you can lay the string down into the crease before you iron it shut and then you don't have to thread it through later.
#7 Then flip over your flag and iron your shape onto the front.
#8 Hang and Enjoy!
