I’m having fun putting together my St. Patrick’s Day decor this year! So glad gold is back with a vengence right now. It makes this holiday just that much more enjoyable to decorate around!
Today I am sharing a super easy Painted Burlap Banner that I made for my mantel. Lots of punch for little effort? Check!
Here’s what you’ll need to make one for yourself (or a friend!):
- gold polka dot burlap (found at Joann’s… it’s like $13/yard but you don’t need much and use a 40% coupon!)
- plain “natural” burlap
- green craft paint
- green yarn
- painter’s tape
- sponge brush
STEP ONE: Cut 4 bunting triangles out of the gold polka dot burlap and 4 bunting triangles out of the natural burlap.
STEP TWO: Using painter’s tape, tape off stripes on the natural burlap triangles.
STEP THREE: Using your sponge brush, dab green paint onto burlap to create stripes. Allow to dry completely and remove painter’s tape carefully (burlap is surprisingly fragile sometimes).
STEP FOUR: Thread bunting triangles onto long piece of yarn (I punched holes in the corners with a hole punch first) and hang!
I’m guessing this took me about 30 minutes start to finish and cost about $7 to make. Love those kinds of projects! And it doesn’t get much more “St. Patrick’s Day” than this. Green & gold everywhere!
I’ll show you the rest of my mantel tomorrow… be sure to check back!
