I’m back and ready to share with you my Fall DIY Burlap Pennant Banner. I’ve been wanting to make this for a few weeks now and fall is the perfect time to do it! This is an easy and fun project that can be done in less than an hour!
Here is all the supplies I used to create the banner:
Computer & Printer
Cardstock paper for template
Hot Glue & Glue Gun
Oh and a little bit of sunshine. 🙂
Ready? Here we go!
I started out by creating a template for the pennants. I knew where I wanted hang the banner so I created this to fit in that space. Each pennant is 5″ across and 7″ to the bottom.
Then I traced around the template with a pencil and cut out the pennants.
You can see here that I also folded over the top edge.
That’s where I will attach the twine to hang that banner.
I also highly recommend ironing the burlap pennants. It makes them soooo
much easier to work with and trust me, it just looks better. 😉
Okay, time to create “stencils” for the letters. I printed the letters off my computer
using Goudy Old Style font. I don’t really remember what size font, but you
might can get an idea here.
Annnnnd, here’s where the sunshine comes in. To trace the letters on to the
pennant, just hold it up to a window so the light shines thru. Trace away!!
I used my handy dandy Sharpie marker to trace the outline of the letters.
You could leave them like this, or you could paint the letters black, add some glitter,
maybe a little more pizazz with some polka dots or something like that 😉
if you are short on time (like me –
doing this during a little girl’s naptime)
and like to keep it simple, you can just color it in
with your Sharpie marker!
Now, it’s time to trim those edges that we folded over and hot glue the pennants
to the twine. Add a little ribbon to the ends and in between each letter and
Ta-Da!! You’re ready to hang your fall burlap banner!
I love how this turned out and I didn’t spend a penny on it. I made this banner
using supplies I already had on hand. I’m planning to make another one for Halloween
maybe on some canvas instead of burlap.
This has made a great little addition to my fall decor in the dining room.
I showed you the little touches I made to the dining room table here.
This is just another peek at some of the updates we’ve completed in the room.
And stay tuned! There’s more fall decor popping up all
around the house this week. I am ready!
Now we just need the cooler weather to get here. 😉
