Today I’m going to show you how to make a Burlap Banner! This is a super easy Tutorial that anyone can do! I’ve used a pre-made Burlap Banner from the David Tutera Casual Elegance Collection, and embellished it to make some pretty decor for my new Craft Room!
This is what I started with, it’s the Burlap Pennants from David Tutera. The Casual Elegance line is a new line, with so many fabulous pieces in it! If you’re not crafty at all, you could easily use these just as they are, they have letters and symbols, including hearts (cute!), already on them and you even get the ribbon to hang them with. Each pennant has 2 grommets on it, so you don’t even need to cut holes! Easy!
These are some more pieces from the line. I was lucky to receive a big stash of these pieces for free. (Being a blogger, does have its perks!) There are so many pretty things in this collection, like Burlap flowers , Burlap and Lace Mason Jar Wraps, adorable stripped Straws, pretty Paper Table Numbers, Chalkboard Stakes, Lacey Paper Lanterns, and even Glass Ball Jars! Of course the sweet vintage style of these are right up my alley! The line is merchandised in the Bridal section, but is so versatile that you’ll find loads of uses for all the lovely pieces. Great for parties, or any type of occasion, or make some pretty decor for your home. If you are planning a Wedding, this collection will make decorating a breeze. David Tutera Casual Elegance marries rustic charm with modern flare, I think these would be the perfect accessories for a dreamy farmhouse wedding! I love that you can add your own personalized details with handmade appeal.
- David Tutera Casual Elegance Pennants
- Craft Paint in your favorite color
- Foam paintbrush
- Paper Lace doilies – small
- Glue dots or mounting foam dots
- Chipboard Letters
- German Glass Glitter
- Blue School Glue Gel
- Twill Tape Ribbon (optional, as there is satin ribbon in the kit)
The first thing that I did was to remove the pieces from the package. I selected some of the letters that I probably wouldn’t use normally, like X and Q etc. Since I was planning on painting these, I figured I would use the least usable letters and save the others to use as they are in the future.
Step 1: Paint the Burlap Pennants in your desired color using craft paint and a foam brush. Take care to wipe paint away from the grommets. Then allow to dry.
Step 2: Brush some blue School Glue Gel onto each chipboard letter, and coat with the German Glass Glitter (if you’re doing this project with children, substitute with synthetic glitter, for a more child friendly alternative.) And set aside to dry.
Step 3: Apply the paper doilies using glue dots or foam mounting dots.
Step 4: Apply the Glittered Chip Board letters to the center of the paper doilies. My letters had peel and stick backs, if yours don’t, you could hot glue them on.
Step 5: The Pennants are done, now just string them together with the ribbon in the package, or whatever ribbon you prefer. I used some ivory Twill Tape for mine.
That’s it! Now I have some pretty decor for my new craft room! (I’ll be sharing more photos of that soon!)
I think the turquoise adds a nice splash of color to my antique etched mirror!
I love how easy this was to make, there was no cutting or measuring the burlap, no frayed edges and the grommets are such a nice touch!
