Painted Burlap Banner: St. Patrick’s Day Decor

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
  • scissors

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!

    I’m definitely using the green striped bunting idea. I couldn’t find the gold polkadot burlap in any of the craft stores around me so I’m going to attempt to paint my own. It’s such a cute idea!
