{DIY} : Valentine's Day Burlap Banners

Last weekend my neighbor texted me and said, 'I'm drinking coffee and crafting, want to come over?'
I couldn't gather my supplies fast enough.

Also can we talk about how fabulous it is to have amazing neighbors?
Our neighbors two doors down are out of the park fantastic, sweet, helpful and caring.
It's the best thing basically ever.
Not to mention I came home to a fabric heart banner in our mailbox the other day...I'm telling you, the best. 

So to gear up for the 'ol love day, I thought I'd whip up an easy Valentine's Day craft.
I'm not sure you can even call this a DIY because it is so easy but here we go.
Hot glue gun

I made this up as I went but it went something like this:
1.  Cut a rectangle of burlap and felt.  Make sure the burlap is a little taller than the felt so you can fold the top over to attach the ribbon on the back.
2. Hot glue felt to the burlap (careful! if you felt isn't thick the glue may come through the burlap, don't burn your fingers!)
3.  Paint your design on your burlap.  Wait for it to dry-should only take a few moments.
4. Turn banner over and hot glue ribbon the length you want to the back.
5. Hang up!
See, SO easy and you could definitely make these for all the holidays! Or I think it would be super cute to do multiple ones on a long ribbon. 
Love is in the air!

Look at you go! I am DIY illiterate so I'm sure I could screw this up! But I love the idea. I would LOVE to have neighbors I could just go hang out with. All of mine are well into their 60's and up! I'm sure they could teach me to knit :)
