Fall mantel and burlap banner tutorial
It’s time to share another fall project! I just love this time of year! Sighh…
Today I’m going to be sharing a burlap fall banner tutorial that I made for my mantel this year. Lowes challenged their creators this month to makeover their mantel and I had a lot of fun decorating! I wanted to create something simple, yet elegant. Here’s what I came up with. And yes– I am so symmetrical! I cannot break this habit. ;) Pumpkins on candlesticks, flowers, and this fun and easy burlap grateful banner. It is super easy and inexpensive to make!
- Banner template (free download HERE)
- Paint and brush
- Jute or twine
- Hot glue gun
1. Print out your template and then cut out the flag. Then you can trace onto burlap. Then cut out your flags. You could also free hand this as well.
2. Stencil on your letters with a stencil brush and paint. Tip: Dab the brush onto a paper towel before brushing it onto the fabric so the paint doesn’t go on too thick.
3. Hot glue a piece of jute across the top of the flags.
4. Tie the ends with lace and hang up on your mantel.
Super simple and festive fall banner!
So I’m curious… have you put up any fall decorations yet?
