Make It Monday- Burlap Banner

Happy Monday!  Ready for some Easter inspiration?  Today we’re making a burlap bunny banner that is perfect for any spring get together or even a little birthday party.  I’ve been trying to choose crafts for Make It Mondays that can be adapted to various holidays or party themes.  This banner can be made with any image or message on any sturdy fabric using the same techniques.

Supplies: burlap, acrylic paint, ribbon, a brush, scissors and tacky glue.
*Learning moment- I originally planned to paint the bunnies in pink but once I started I saw that there was not enough contrast so I switched my design to white.  Test the color on a small swatch of fabric to make sure its what you want before diving in.

You will also need a stencil.  If you want mine, click here and print on bright white card stock.

Cut out your triangle, outline the shape on your fabric and cut your flags.

Cut out the bunny with scissors or an exacto knife
Lay the stencil over the fabric and fill in the bunny shape.  I did not have a real stencil brush.  My paint brush worked fine.  Just make sure you paint from outside in (paper to fabric) so that the paint doesn’t get under the stencil, ruining your shape!
Once the bunnies have dried, use tacky glue to attach them to your ribbon and hang it up.
Want something easier but just as cute?  Simply print multiple copies of the stencil, cut, hole punch and weave together with ribbon.  Darling. You can even add glitter or a pom pom on the tail.
Back tomorrow with amazing party inspiration and we’ll use the rest of the week on our party planning series.  A quick thanks to Jamielyn of I Heart Nap Time, Jamie of My Baking Addiction and Lindsay at Southern Lovely for making my week already.  These ladies are fabulous and so are their blogs.  Check them out!   Have a great day.
