DIY Burlap Spring Banner

Burlap Spring Banner

Over the weekend I was seriously gearing up for spring. I made a trip to IKEA to get a few spring-y things (will share later), hit up the craft store for supplies to make a few spring projects  and then I actually did the projects!  I also made a side trip to Home Depot and purchased some flowers and bushes to spruce up our pathetic front yard.  Anyway, today I am going to share with you a super easy spring banner made out of burlap.  I wasn’t even planning on making it, but my mom had sent me some burlap ribbon a few weeks ago, and I thought it would be a cute addition to the spring mantle I was putting together (and finally taking down my Valentines Day Banner….).

So, like I said, it’s super easy and I think it took less than 10 minutes total….

What you need:

Burlap or Burlap ribbon cut to size.  I liked using the ribbon because 1) it didn’t make a huge mess, 2) it was easy to cut into to make the little pennants, and 3) it just seemed easier.  BUT, if you don’t want to go out and buy the ribbon and you have some burlap already laying around, by all means use that.

Craft paint in whatever colors you want to write ‘spring’ (I used white). Shocking fact: I didn’t have any white paint, so I just used some white primer that was sitting in my garage! It totally worked, too!

Twine/ribbon/rope to hang the burlap letters on.

Hot glue to attach rope to letters

What to do:

1. Cut out your burlap, make the triangle indents for the pennant shape.

2. Use craft paint (or primer if you are rebel, like me), and paint a ‘S P R I N G’ onto each piece of burlap. I was feeling daring and just used my finger to paint the letters.  Don’t forget the N like I did…oop

3. Paint cute spring time silhouettes onto 2 burlap pieces (I did a bunny). 

  • For this I just googled bunny silhouette and found one that would fit on my burlap. I used a piece of paper to trace it through my laptop screen, and then cut that out. Then I traced that bunny onto the burlap using a crayon (totally worked!).  I even colored it in with a crayon too…looks great!

4. Measured out rope across my mantle.  Cut the rope to size, and laid it on the floor. I placed the burlap along the rope to see the spacing.  

5. Then I glued the burlap onto the rope with hot glue.  I folded the top of the burlap over the rope, and put the glue in the middle of the fold, and pressed down to secure.

6. Hang on mantle!

Done!

    • It was so easy! I actually regretted using the paint on the letters, because I could have made less of a mess using the crayons! Thanks for stopping by!

  13. So cute! I love the little bunnies

  14. Crayon on burlap???? You are freaking amazing and I am totally copying you. I love to make banners and I have stencils for the letters, but I never do cute shapes because I don’t have stencils and I’ve tried to use stamps, but they come out blotchy. Now I can use one of the ten thousand broken crayons I have in my house! Oh and tracing the silhouette from the computer is pretty slick too!

  15. So adorable! Thanks for stopping by to say hello!
