Stars and Stripes Burlap Bunting #creativebuzz

Memorial Day is just around the corner and I am so darned excited! We’ll be taking a long weekend for a camping trip with a bunch of family and it is sure to be a blast. Anything will be better than last years trip where it rained the majority of the time… and when it wasn’t raining, it snowed!

Since I am so ready for our trip I decided to make a burlap bunting we can add to our campsite in celebration… although my flag loving son has been trying to steal it for his room, so we’ll see where it ends up!

I won a bag of supplies from FloraCraft when I was at Snap Conference, so this was the perfect project to use the burlap and twine that was in the bag!

Want to make one for yourself? Here’s how:

Burlap (I used a 4″ wide roll of Burlap Garland)
 I created a stencil for the shape of the bunting pieces, the stars and the stripes. You can choose to free hand or use painters tape, I just found the stencils easiest for me.
Cut 8 pieces of burlap – I went 4″ wide by 7″ tall.
Paint the top 1.5″ of the banner blue – I used a foam pouncer for all of the painting.
Using the stripes stencil, paint on the red stripes – I chose to go vertically.
Once I finished all the stripes, I grabbed the first bunting piece that I painted and stenciled on the stars.
Next we are going to sew the pieces onto some twine.

Line the top of the bunting with the twine and then using a zig zag stitch, sew the two together.

I put about 3-4 inches between each piece.
You’re done! Now hang and admire!

And with Memorial Day and Fourth of July just around the corner, don’t miss out on my Pledge of Allegiance Printable, available via Today’s Creative Blog.
