Hope you're having a good week so far.
We're working on the cottage this week, so I haven't been around much, but follow me on Instagram as I've been posting some pics of our progress.
Last week I posted my Fall Mantel and thought I'd share how I made a super easy banner out of burlap.
Since we're saving every penny for the cottage reno, the banner cost me exactly ZERO because I used leftover burlap and some ribbon I already had.
This is all you need to make a banner:
Glue or Hot Glue Gun
Ruler & Scissors
First I cut out one triangle about 8 inches high and wide.
Then, I cut out 6 more in this fashion to save fabric. (I only had about a quarter of a yard left over from another project)
After that, I just drew my letters freehand using a ruler. I drew the outline of the letter out, then used the edge of the ruler to fill in.
Finally, I strung the ribbon on the mantel to get the right length and then, hot glued the top 2 corners of the triangles to the ribbon.
So, has it finally gotten cool where you are?
We drove up to Boone yesterday and it was a gorgeous day and some of the leaves were turning.
Can't wait to see that where we are.
