It is not lost on me that I have already posted two Christmas crafts this November. But lest you think that I don’t care about Thanksgiving at all (which is one of my favorite holidays!) I am here to share with you my Easy Thanksgiving Banner (or bunting, as some call it) that I made for my mantel this year! I love how my “vision” turned out!
Here are the supplies you’ll need to make one of your own!
- burlap (I took the easy way out this year and bought mine already cut into the bunting shape I wanted. But you can save some money by cutting it yourself!)
- Thick chipboard letters spelling out desired word (found mine at Hobby Lobby for $1 each)
- Gold, metallic acrylic craft paint
- Cream acrylic craft paint
- Jute or twine
STEP ONE: Paint the edges of your letters gold. Then paint the tops/front cream. Allow to dry between colors.
STEP TWO: Put down piece of parchment paper and then hot glue letters onto burlap pieces. You’ll want the parchment paper down because that hot glue is going to squish right on through those holes in the burlap!
STEP THREE: Using a hole punch, punch holes at top of burlap pieces and string jute/twine through to hang. Done!
I love the extra sumpin-sumpin the thick letters with gold edges adds to the whole thing! I’m working on the rest of my mantel and will share that later this week.
Happy Thanksgiving Crafting!
