DIY Burlap Christmas Banner
Burlap Christmas Banner
Everyone seems to love burlap decoration but normally I am not a fan of it. It just so happened to fit my theme this year for a Mardi Gras Christmas. It has a very rustic look and feel to it. I was able to find the burlap on sale at my local craft store for 50% off. You are able to change up what the sign says to fit your needs. If you are looking for a traditional sign you can just have it say Merry Christmas. I wanted to keep with the Madri Gras and I cut the classic bead necklaces and glued them together. But you can use twine, string or ribbon to hang your banner.
DIY Burlap Christmas Banner Supplies
- 5 yards of 6 inch Burlap
- Red and green paint
- Thin paint brushes
- Ribbon, string or beads
- Hot glue gun
DIY Burlap Christmas Banner Directions
Measure 8 inches on your burlap and make a small cut on the side and pull that burlap thread.
Cut the burlap along that blank space to cut a straight line.
Repeat this so you have enough pieces for your sign.
Fold your burlap in half lengthwise and make a 1 1/2 inch angled cut from the folded side down to the other side, repeat with all the pieces.
Find the font you like on your computer and make it a good size for your banner.
Place your piece of burlap on the screen and trace the letter with the chalk, repeat with all the letters. You can also opt to print the letters if you want to, but I find it easier to just use my computer screen.
Place the burlap on a table lined with paper.
Paint the over the chalk lines with your paint changing the color of each letter, let dry. Layout your letters upside down so when you flip it over it will be in order.
Glue the string to the top the burlap and fold over a 1/4 of the burlap.
Let dry and hang up.
