Ahh, burlap! There's no other fabric quite like it. Yes, it's scratchy. And sometimes stinky. And yes, it can make a mess when you cut it. Yet, we still love it. Especially for fall. And it's the perfect choice for a super-easy fall bunting. Everybody & their sister has one in blog land & I've been feeling a little left out because I didn't have one yet, so I gathered up all the inspiration I've come across recently & came up with my own little version. And if you want to make one for yourself, here's how I did it:
For my version, I cut my little pennants out of burlap measuring about 5" across the top & 7 " down to the point. Then, I printed out my "fall" letters & used my freezer paper stencil method to paint them onto the burlap. (Click here for those instructions).
Then I just glued on some ribbon & the pennants were done!
To hang them, I clipped each pennant onto a long piece of twine with these mini clothespins I found in the office supply section at Wal-Mart. (They're so cute!)
And that was it! Super easy. Even for those of you who think you're not crafty. And the little clips can be used again & again for different seasonal buntings as well.
I love it! Everyone needs one! So, I'm sharing with some of these crafters. Check them out!
