Burlap Banner

I love making banners.
Sometimes I make them with pretty paper,
but my favorite ones have been made from burlap.

I made this one for my friend's baby shower.
The shower had a moustache theme and the color was turquoise.

I started by deciding what size triangle I wanted the letter panels to be.
I cut a triangle out of cardstock and used it as a pattern.
Using a Sharpie marker, I traced around the template for a total of six burlap triangles.

Then I cut out along the inside of my lines (that way the lines wouldn't be visible).
I used foam stamps and black paint for my letters.
On two triangles, I used a heart stamp.
To keep it with the moustache theme, I added moustache stickers to the hearts.
(I liked that they were stickers- that way my friend can peel them off
and use the banner in the nursery if she decides to.)

Then I glued the burlap triangles to a long piece of twine leaving just a little space in between them.
My final step was to add pieces of turquoise ribbon in those spaces.

Easy and cute.
You could make a personalized banner like this for any celebration.

Thanks for stopping by and God bless.
