Burlap + bunting = true love for me. At least for me. Probably you, too.
I love having natural looking items in my house. And I love bunting. so combining two of my favorite things only sounds, well, natural! I’ve seen so many different bunting versions – pennant, fabric, paper – none have ever let me down! When I decided to do burlap banner, I was a little intimidated and wasn’t even sure if it would be very cute. But, these crafty hands did not let me down!
In the end, I made a Fall bunting banner that I can leave out all season. I went ahead and made one that says, “ho, ho, ho” for the Christmas season. What can I say, they just make me smile. Below is the tutorial for these easy burlap banners! Enjoy!
What you need:
- Jute string or something similar
- Hot glue
- Paint and brushes
- Stencil or printed letters
Cut your triangles, then lay them down and put the string towards the top of the triangle. (Or get really crafty and make use a shape besides a triangle!Fold over the top and hot glue. Then trim that little excess burlap piece on the side Once you have everything cut and glued, choose your font and size. I went with the traditional “Times New Roman.” Trial and error getting the font and size correct is expected.Cut out the letter and trace. Don’t feel stuck using a fabric pen, you’ll be painting over it in the end anyway,
