There is just something about Lace and Burlap layered together! I think its the contrast in the delicacy of the lace and the rough and raw texture of the burlap… whatever it is, these to fabrics play very nicely together and I can’t get enough! Add in a little sheet music and turn it into bunting and you’ve got a definite win! I’m totally in love with my new Lace Burlap and Sheet Music Bunting!
I added this new beauty to my booth display this past weekend and it was a HIT! I’m honestly surprised that I didn’t end up selling it… not that I was planning on it, but there were so many people in love with it! I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have parted with it for any amount. Its just too pretty!
And did I mention that this Lace Burlap and Sheet Music Bunting is entirely too easy to make?!?!? You can whip one up for yourself with just a few supplies and a sewing machine!
Here’s what you need: (*affiliate link)
Step #1 – Cut the lace burlap ribbon into 8″ long strips. Cut your bunting points 2″ from the bottom. Iron on appropriate heat setting.
Step #2 – Create a heart template in the size and shape you want. Mine is about 3 inches. Trace hearts onto the sheet music and then cut them out. Iron on lowest heat setting – I know that sounds weird – ironing paper – but it will help smooth out and remove any crinkles or folds from cutting.
Step #3 – Center the sheet music heart on a lace burlap bunting piece and stitch in place. Pull your threads to the backside and knot to secure. Trim the threads short. Repeat on as many burlap pieces as you’d like – I did 5.
Step #4 – Using the glue gun, add a line of hot glue .5″ from the top of the bunting piece on the BACK side. Carefully place a section of the jute twine into the hot glue and fold the top .5″ of the bunting piece over. Add additional glue as needed to secure it in place. Be sure to leave a foot or 2 of jute twine on one side of the first bunting piece you glue – you’ll need it to attach/tie the bunting in place. Leave a 3-4 inch gap of jute twine between bunting pieces, and repeat the hot gluing process until you’ve added all your bunting pieces.
Allow to cool. Remove any hot glue “strings”. Iron again to flatten if necessary.
Now all that is left is figuring out where to hang your new lace burlap and sheet music bunting! I’m thinking I might add mine above our bed once we get our bedroom painted in a few weeks!
Are you a bunting fan? I’d have several in every room if my husband would let me! 😉
