DIY Burlap Banner Video

Happy Thanksgiving!  This post is a little more Christmas than Thanksgiving....but I am ready for Christmas!

I have something so fun to share today.  I recently posted a picture of some crafty projects I made recently at a class I held here at my house.  One of the projects was a "be merry" burlap banner and I had several emails asking questions, so I thought I would share how I made it!

When I first organized the class, I found a ton of pictures of burlap banners all over Pinterest.  I instantly thought of these fabulous Lawn Fawn Stitched Party Dies and how cute they would be in burlap!



So I cut out several banners using the LF banner die and got to work.  Over the time it took to make all the banners for my craft class, I realized that the burlap banner was pretty delicate and needed some reinforcement.  I always use interacting when I cut fabric with dies, so I figured I could use the same with burlap.  I found the "Wonder Under" in a heavy duty strength at Hobby Lobby and figured it would work great!

I decided to make a video because I am geeking out over these banners and had to share!  Here is a the end result...

  1. Super cute, Laurie! Great video. You have totally sold me on that banner die. My daughter made a banner for our dining room that says, "Oh Come Let Us Adore Him". She cut them all out by hand and also the letters. It looks great but this would be so much easier. Thank you for sharing and have a very Happy Thanksgiving! xo

  2. Brilliant! I wanted to do this with canvas but fail. It didn't cut so I need to look for something to stiffen it up! :)
