Valentine Pillow ~ Burlap and Ribbon Heart

Happy Monday Friends!  I’ve got a confession…. I’m not a huge Valentine’s decorator.  I’d rather bake the Valentine goodies and do a craft with my kiddos, but I will throw a few Valentine decor items into the mix.  This year I made a sweet Valentine pillow from one of my favorite fabrics ~ burlap and sweetened it up with a red ribbon with a dotted line.

I stitched up this little burlap pillow by hand.  If you’ve been around my blog for long you know I’m not much of a seamstress and if this had been fabric other than burlap I would have hot glued it together.  Our machine is out of commission at the moment… so hand stitching it was.

I used a heart shaped cake pan and chalk to outline the heart shape on the burlap.

Then with a cute red ribbon with white dotting and a large needle I created this sweet heart.

I left enough ribbon at the ends to tie it off as a cute bow.

I love it!  It’s a sweet Valentine’s décor addition… that’s just my style.

Here’s a few other Valentine goodies I’ve made over the years…

    Hi Maryann,
    I found your blog through the Pinterest for this cute Valentine pillow. What a sweet idea and my favorite part is how you tied the bow at the bottom of the heart. I used your idea and made one for our porch. Thank you for the Valentine inspiration and happy to have found your blog.
