St. Patrick's Day Banner

AS WE ROLL INTO THINKING ABOUT SPRING, I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE NICE TO KEEP SOME OF OUR ST. PATRICK'S DAY DECOR RATHER SIMPLE.

AND THIS IS WHEN I THOUGHT THAT MAKING A SIMPLE BURLAP BANNER WOULD BE PERFECT.

  • gold polka dot burlap (found at Joann’s… it’s like $13/yard but you don’t need much and use a 40% coupon!)
  • plain “natural” burlap
  • green craft paint
  • green yarn
  • painter’s tape
  • sponge brush
  • scissors

STEP ONE: Cut 4 bunting triangles out of the gold polka dot burlap and 4 bunting triangles out of the natural burlap.

STEP TWO: Using painter’s tape, tape off stripes on the natural burlap triangles.

STEP THREE: Using your sponge brush, dab green paint onto burlap to create stripes. Allow to dry completely and remove painter’s tape carefully (burlap is surprisingly fragile sometimes).

STEP FOUR: Thread bunting triangles onto long piece of yarn (I punched holes in the corners with a hole punch first) and hang!

I’m guessing this took me about 30 minutes start to finish and cost about $7 to make. Love those kinds of projects! And it doesn’t get much more “St. Patrick’s Day” than this. Green & gold everywhere!

This will look gorgeous with all your gold mercury glass candle holders from Christmas!
