It’s no secret that I’m hopelessly addicted to banners. I love buntings of all kinds – made from paper, fabric, yarn… you name it! Now that our family has a fireplace & mantel of our very own, you can bet that I’ll be draping it with seasonal DIY banners galore.
Burlap makes me think of a rustic, country Fall day. I think a banner made of burlap is completely adorable mixed with autumn decor. Here’s one that I quickly made out of wide burlap ribbon and some twine. All you need is a glue-gun to make this easy no-sew DIY burlap bunting!
- a roll of wide burlap ribbon (I found mine at Michaels)
- twine or yarn
- glue gun
- As pictured, fold and end of the burlap ribbon up 45 degrees to meet the side and cut this triangular folded shape off (this is a simple way to measure a square shape).
- Fold this square in half length-wise, and cut a diagonal piece off of one of the cut end as shown.
- When you open the square up, it will have a symmetrical triangular shape cut from the bottom.
- Make as many of these flags as needed for your desired banner length and run a bead of hot glue along the top of a flag and press the twine into it. Repeat with each flag until your banner is done. (I left about an inch of empty twine between each flag.)
Now you have a lovely, rustic country bunting banner to enjoy for Thanksgiving and Christmas! And you didn’t even have to pull out the sewing machine.
Happy Fall decorating!
