PATRIOTIC BURLAP BUNTING BANNER
1 roll of red, white, and blue burlap
Hot glue, glue gun
Ribbon or twine
We found the burlap used in this sample project for around $4 at our local Walmart store. Your local craft store may also have something similar. Look for burlap ribbon that has wire edges as it will look cleaner and be easier to work with.
1. Begin by cutting the burlap ribbon into 3-4 inch sections.
2. At the bottom of each section, cut out a triangle. This will give it the vintage flare of the embellished edges, just like old carnival or fair banners use to have.
3. Apply some hot glue (do not use regular craft glue as it is not strong enough for the burlap) to the top of each section.
4. Press the ribbon or twine to the glue and hold until dry. Repeat as needed.
Once you have repeated this process and the banner is the length of your choice, you can display it. You can hang it indoors, or even spray it with waterproof spray to enjoy it out on a patio or deck.
Give this easy and fun patriotic burlap bunting banner a try. It is a great way to get your home full of patriotic color and charm for less.
