Personalized Burlap Banner DIY

I recently got the opportunity to make a burlap banner for a baby shower.

The baby's name is Hedessah.
Obviously we couldn't find a pre-made banner for her:)

I used this photo as inspiration to make my banner.

I started by making a triangle template.
I took a square 6"x 6" piece cardstock and made a fold  right in the center at one end.
Then I cut from that mark to the opposite two corners creating a triangle.
Once I had this, I used it to draw triangles with a Sharpie marker on a large piece of burlap.
I cut just inside the lines.

I made a total of 10 triangles- one for each letter of the name and two for hearts.
Then I used foam stamps and acrylic paint to paint the letters and hearts.

Once the paint dried, I used my glue gun to attach the burlap triangles to a long strand of twine.
I left a little bit of space in between each triangle.
 I added 3-4 fabric strips in between each triangle.

It turned out better than I thought it would.
As a matter of fact, I am thinking of making another one for a graduation party that
I'm helping to prepare for!

If you like this look, but would rather skip the step of cutting out your own pennants,
you can actually buy pre-cut burlap triangles at Hobby Lobby.
 Then all you have to do is stamp the letters and glue the pieces to twine.

Thanks for stopping by and God bless.

Now may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace always in every way. 
The Lord be with you all.
1 Thes. 3:16
