DIY Burlap Fabric Banner
I have been wanting to try my hand at a burlap banner for some time. I thought that I would use the materials that I already had for my first one (sewing can be an expensive hobby!) I cut out what I wanted my banner to look like using parchment paper plus I added one inch at the top so I could fold it over my ribbon to sew it together.
I painted the letters MILK on them. I wanted to have it say something that would go in the kitchen area but also have something to do with the family so MILK was perfect. (Matt, Ivy,Lucy, Kelli...MILK)
I took ribbon I already had. It was too wide so I cut it in half and then sewed the 2 pieces together.
I sewed a zig zag stitch around the burlap to keep it from fraying. I then ironed it folded over the ribbon and sewed. There you have it! A DIY burlap banner!
I put it over our big mirror in our dining room area.
