I've seen some cute little banners that have popped up all over the blogasphere. (I'm sure that's a real word, spell checker, with your annoying red line.) I've seen them with scrapbook paper, fabric, burlap...
Oh, wait. Did you say Burlap? 'Cause that's one of my new favorite things. Seriously.
So, of course, I had to jump on the band-wagon! Hey, I know when to be a follower...
First, I cut out pieces of triangular burlap.
Then, I cut out square pieces of scrapbook paper and glued them together.
I just used alphabet stickers for the letters and then I sewed the paper-blocked letters onto the burlap. Zig-zag style. (I cut out the leaves on my own, but they were super easy.)
I sewed the triangles together with some jute and a ginormous needle. Done.
I know...it says "Give Thanks." I was telling my sister about it and she said, "Oh, that sounds so cute. But it's not Thanksgiving."
I know. I just can't bring myself to like Halloween. So, "Give Thanks" it is. On my new mantel that I love....
I think I'm clairvoyant because I see more of these in the house in my future. I've already got a variation in my mind just waiting for my banisters at Christmas time. Yippee!!!
