Easy Fall Banner

Hey everyone! 
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:
Sharpie Marker
Glue or Hot Glue Gun
Ruler & Scissors

That's it!!!

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.
Super easy.

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. 



  1. I loved your mantel when I saw it and that banner looks super easy! It's perfect! It is definitely cooler here! I'd be enjoying it but it's also been raining a lot!

  2. Always love your mantel decor! the banner and you make that project look so easy!...Have fun with the reno of the cottage...must be so exciting!
