How To Make An Autumn Burlap Banner

Amazon failed me.

I thought I could find a triangular burlap, bunting style  banner on Amazon to save me some time on my Fall decorating, 
but alas, I could not.
So after looking everywhere online, I set out to make my own banner.

All the supplies needed in my craftroom:
Printer paper
Cardstock
Burlap
Burlap string
Glue gun and hot glue
Printer
Iron

To make the pattern for the triangle:
fold a piece of printer paper in half. Make a mark at the top 4” from the center and make the length 10 5/8” and draw a line from the 2 points.
At the widest part of the triangle, cut the corner back, from 5/8”, to make more of a diamond shape. This edge will be folded down to hold the string.

Trace the paper pattern onto some cardstock or thick paper and cut out.

Trace the cardstock pattern onto the burlap and cut out the triangles.

Fold the tops down 5/8” down and press it with an iron.
Cut string to the length you need, plus about 36", and place the string under the folded burlap.

Hot glue inside the fold.
*Tip: use a popsicle stick to press the fold while the glue is drying, so you don’t burn your fingers.

Print out your letters on cardstock.
Cut another piece of cardstock about 3/8” smaller on all sides than the burlap triangle.

Hot glue the printed cardstock onto the burlap.

I’ll be sharing our mantel decorated for Fall next time.

Hope you stop by next time.
Please say a prayer for all those in the path of hurricane Florence.
We’re expecting some wind and rain here in Charlotte, and hopefully our power will stay on.
