Burlap is one of my favorite materials to work with. Not only do I decorate and craft with it, I use it in my Etsy shop all the time. It adds a touch of warm and rustic charm to my typically modern decor. Today I’m sharing a simple painted burlap banner along with some other bloggers who are sharing beautiful Christmas burlap projects. Be sure to scroll all the way down and check out their creations.
- Burlap pennants
- Red craft paint
- Sponge brush
- Glitter letters
I used red paint and a sponge brush to stencil stripes on my burlap pennants. Once dry I glued on glitter letters that I cut with my Silhouette. If you don’t have a Silhouette you can buy all kinds of pretty letters, pre-cut, at a craft store. Then I clipped my pennants onto a length of twine and hung it on my mantle.
This is such a simple project, but it really brings some nice color and warmth to my mantle-in-progress. Christmas decorating is going a little slow this year, Baby Girl is having a field day with ornaments and other shiny items, so I am trying to get things out of boxes and out of her reach while she’s napping. Sometime before Christmas I’ll get it all done!
