How to make your own Valentine’s Day Love Banner Table Runner:
Cut the red felt to 18” wide by the length of your dining table plus an overhang on each end. Cut the white felt to two inches shorter and thinner than the red felt length. Use the iron on adhesive to attach the white felt to the red felt by following the directions on the package.
Cut four 4” wide by 6” tall triangles out of your red felt.
Trace and cut out a heart and white letters, either using a stencil or free hand, with the letters measuring 2.5” by 1.5”.
Make a slightly smaller heart shape from patterned red fabric or felt. Use fabric adhesive to attach the patterned heart to the white heart and then attach the completed heart to one of the red flags.
Use the fabric adhesive to attach the letters to the remaining triangle flags.
Attach the flags to the runner and then thread the wide-eyed needle with a length of red yarn to sew across each flag, threading the needle through the runner at the tip of each flag.
Tie two small red bows and then attach the them to each end of the flags.
Love Table Runner completed! Happy crafting!
