DOLLAR TREE Valentine Swag

I have admired these swags forever and have made several with muslin fabric and was excited to try my hand at one to include with my valentine decor.  I will be honest when I say they are time consuming and messy if you use burlap.  If you use just fabric they are not quite as messy.
