"Lucky" Banner

I can't believe we are now coming up to St. Patrick's Day!! 
This is year is going by fast. Does anyone else feel this way??
 Even though Easter is at the end of March this year I still wanted to 
decorate for St. Patrick's Day. This year I made a couple of new things to 
add to my decor for this holiday. 

Today I am going to give you a tutorial on how I made a cute Burlap Banner to hang up. 

Here it is:


Supplies You Will Need:
-Burlap
-Jute {or something so hang it on}
-Pattern for the flags
-vinyl or paper cut outs of silhouette of the letters
-4 leaf clover cut outs
-Paint
-Brush
-scissors
-ribbon {I used green and brown. The light green one pictured I didn't end up using.}
-Medium clothespins



How I Made It:
I first traced the pattern I made on my cricut onto the burlap with a magic marker. I did 5 of these.

Then I cut them all out.

Next, I transfered the vinyl silhouette cut outs of the letter's "Lucky" onto each flag.

Then my cute little helper and I painted the letters on the burlap.


We let those dry for a good hour or so.


When they dried, I pulled the vinyl off and started hanging everything on the jute leaving a little bit of space between each thing.


After I got everything hung with the clothespins, I added ribbon in between everything. This is the technique I used to tie them around the jute:

Step 1: Lay the ribbon under the jute so its folded in half and the round part is at the top.


Step2: Pull the 2 ends up through the loop at the top - making sure you are going around the jute.


Step 3: Pull it tight, while pulling on the jute



That's it!! 
It went together quickly once the paint dried!


Here are some more pictures of it:





It is already hanging on the mantel and looks so CUTE!!!

  5. Lovely to look at and so cheerful! Would you edge the sides of the flag, in case the jute frays if one were to use it more than the once, I wonder. It's a great idea to copy, not necessarily for St. Paddy's Day!

    1. Thank you so much!! That is probably a good idea to edge the sides, but I just left it as is. I may regret that later :)
