DIY Burlap Bird Banner
Another rainy day has ended and more rain is on its way at the end of the week. The rain is great for our vegetable garden, but it’s not so good for my mood. I’m getting a little stir crazy with the rain so I worked on some craft projects, like my new burlap bird banner.
I love decorating with banners. They add color and whimsy to any corner of your home, and of course, they’re always great for party decor. This one was pretty easy to make.
I started with pre-cut burlap triangles. You can find packages of these triangles for fairly cheap at your local craft store. I then roughly painted them with a coat of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White.
Once the white paint dried, I stenciled birds and tiny hearts onto each triangle using acrylic paint. You could use any shape stencil for your own banner.
Using mini clothespins, I hung each triangle onto a stretch of burlap ribbon.
Then I tied strips of ribbon and lace in between each triangle.
My little DIY Burlap Bird Banner was a fun and easy project for a rainy afternoon. More rain is forecast for the end of the week so I may be doing a few more crafting projects … although I’d rather be out working in the garden.
Don’t forget … there’s still time to enter my $50 gift card giveaway to Antique Farm House!!
Very Cute! I love how you added the chalk paint…great idea!
Jennifer, this is so cute! I just made one Friday for my granddaughter’s desk chair that I was working on. I wish I would have thought to paint the banners…shoot! Thanks for the inspiration.
This is really cute, I think I will make it for my Valentine’s Day mantle…lovebirds 🙂 ♥ Thank you so much for sharing!
These are so cute. Love a good rainy day project. We need rain desperately in Calif. but we won’t hold our breath. I am watering my outside ornamentals with gray water now. Most subdivisions around here have banned outdoor watering completely, not mine, yet, but I figured I should be ahead of the game and better that it be used for watering my roses than going in the sewer anyways.
