Hi! It’s Amanda from Jedi Craft Girl. I am happy to share my burlap heart garland tutorial today! This is a fun and quick project for sure!
Glitter Dust™ Spray
scraps of lace
** a note about burlap…… Not all burlap is created equal. I spent some time in the LA fabric district talking to different venders about the burlap craze! The burlap I used in this tutorial is not technically burlap, but jute. It has a tighter weave, it’s a little stiffer, and it doesn’t fray as much. If you are not able to find this version of burlap, I am sure the larger weave will work just as well. I do love the tight weave for this project.
This garland has 5 hearts. Cut out 5 sets of burlap hearts.
Trace 5 of the smaller hearts on the HeatnBond® Lite. Roughly cut around the hearts and iron to the wrong side of 5 pieces of fabric. Cut on the pattern line and peel off the backing paper.
Press with hot iron to 5 burlap hearts.
Top stitch the fabric heart to the burlap.
Place the fabric/burlap heart on top of a burlap heart and sew 1/4″ around the heart leaving a 2″ opening on the side. Here you can see the stitch line, it’s in white thread.
Put a little fiber fill in the hearts. Don’t over stuff.
Top stitch the opening closed.
Spray the hearts with Gold Glitter Dust™ Spray. This give them just a little something’ extra 🙂
I love the Glitter Dust™ because the glitter does not flake off. It’s a very soft dusting!
I tried to photograph so you can see the glitter – it’s really subtle which I love.
Measure the twine the length you want the garland. Thread a large needle and sew through the top portion of each heart. You kind of have to squeeze the heart to get the needle through.
Here they are all strung:
Now get out your basket of lace and your cat 🙂
Start tying little pieces of lace randomly. I used every kind of lace and all different tones of neutral.
Keept tying until it is filled in.
I hung my garland above my china hutch. I love it!
