Ombre Heart On Burlap

Hello My Crafty Spot readers! It is Lindsay from My Creative Days back to share a fun project with you.

I am not a person who decorates a lot for Valentine’s Day. I do add a few things here and there and this year, I was inspired to make this Ombre Heart On Burlap project for our front door.

I bought a set of burlap panels at Michaels last year.

They are the perfect size to make a sign for our front door.

To make it, the first thing I did was cut a heart from cardstock to trace on the burlap.

Then, I drew lines inside the heart to separate the different colors.

I wanted the colors to go from light pink to red so those are the two colors I used throughout the entire project.

I painted the top section of the heart pink and the bottom section, red. To get the colors in between, I added more red to the pink paint at each section to darker it a little at a time.

It worked great!

This is what I ended up with.

I wanted to add a little something more to the sign so I took my hot glue gun and some twine and added the word “love” under the heart.

After it all dried, I took a screwdriver and poked holes in the top of the burlap panel.

I used some pink burlap ribbon to hang it.

I love how it looks on our front door!
