burlap pennant banner {Embracing Messy}

Sep 18, 2012

Welcome to the third part of the Welcome to Autumn series! Today my awesome friend, Kelsey, is going to share how she made an adorable Fall burlap banner!

Hello A Creative Cookie readers! I'm Kelsey from Embracing Messy and I'm so excited to be working with Kate again for her fall series! Today I'm going to share a quick little tutorial for a burlap pennant banner. 


What you'll need: 
-Acrylic Craft Paint
-Jute String
-Fray Check (Or any other type of anti-fray stuff)
-Paint Brush
-Glue Gun

{Step 1} Cut out your pennant shapes. I just used a ruler to make sure my edge was straight on the first, then used the first triangle to make the others. 

{Step 2} Apply Fray Check to the edges of the pennant pieces. This keeps the burlap from completely unraveling.

{Step 3} Paint your letters or whatever else you'd like one your pennants using basic craft paint. 

{Step 4} Using the glue gun, I glued the jute string to the backs of my pennants.

And there you have it! Now put this baby anywhere you want! Mine is quite small because I have plans to either use it on a wreath, frame, or jar, but I haven't made up my mind yet! Thanks so much for having me Kate! Be sure to stop by my blog next week for a guest post by Kate and other fun fall posts! 
I love this little banner! It would be perfect on a wreath!
