Quick and Easy Fall Banner


This is a super easy project and looks so cute! All you need is some burlap, jute twine, black marker, a pair of scissors, hot glue and a little trim. Oh yeah and some card stock to make your template. I found all of my materials with the exception of the trim, at my local Walmart.


Create your template by measuring out the size of your triangle. I made mine 12 inches and added a little extra at the top so to fold the burlap over the jute twine. Once I cut my flags I ironed them to remove any of the creases which occurred while the fabric was folded.


Next I glued the top of the flags to the twine. I did this by laying the twine about 1/4 of an inch down from top of the flag and put a line of hot glue onto the twine. Then the burlap was rolled over the twine so that there were no frayed edges. In between each flag I tied a little bow in the twine and then secured it with a dollop of glue. 


Once all the flags were on place I turned the whole thing over and glued the trim to the front about 1/2 inch down from the top of each flag. (Right below where you can feel the line of twine.) The trim was wrapped around the back to give it a finished look. I extended it about a 1/4 -1/2 inch on each side around the back.


Finally I free handed the letters on with plain old black marker. You can always use a stencil if you one handy that will work.



And ta-da...you're all done! I think the new banner totally rounds out my fall mantel display. 
Hope you are having a super day and wishing you a wonderful weekend!!!

  4. Love your mantel, Barbara. This is a pretty banner. I tried to pin it to my Autumn board, but the button above brought me to a page of photos, I was not familiar with what to do next. xo

  5. I love the contrast of the texture of the burlap against the white mantle and brickwork. Such a nice layered effect. Your fireplace is so warm and inviting, I can see curling up and reading a book there as the weather gets colder. Thanks for the great ideas.
