This year I made a burlap banner to go with my Fall/Thanksgiving mantel. Lucky for you I made a tutorial along the way to share with everyone, hope you enjoy!
Supplies you will need:
Burlap type fabric, scissors, needles (if you want, not necessary), ribbon, ruffles, hot glue gun, Mod Podge(not pictured, sorry), extra fabric for accents if you would like, stencil for the burlap shape and font of some sort.
You can paint letters on as well or use die cut letters like.
Start by cutting out your banner shapes.
(this is where you could use the needles to hold down the stencil)
Once you have your shapes cut out I recommend using Mod Podge on the BACK of the fabric to stiffen it and to stop the fabric from fraying.
I want to have the banner last for many years so that is why I really think this is important.
I focused the most around the edges to stop the fraying then from there filled in the Mod Podge into the rest of the pieces.
Let the pieces dry.
This took a few hours to get completely dry.
Take your ribbon of choice and hot glue it to the BACK of your burlap.
I just hot glued right along the top.
Measure out a piece of ruffled lace then hot glue that down to the top of the burlap.
This is what you should have
Continue these steps for the rest of your banner.
I did about a 1 inch gap between the two burlap pieces.
This is the bottom "Thanks" section to my banner.
I then hot glued my letters onto the burlap.
I cut these out using my Silhouette machine.
Here you have it!
I did have some fabric that matched my decorations so I cut strips and made flowers out of them.
You can add any type of accent that you would like. Felt flowers, ribbon flowers, bows etc.
They would all look cute!
Hope you enjoyed the tutorial! Here are some pictures of the finished product:
