As summer comes to an end, fall will quickly approach before we know it. Grab a mug of apple cider and a few friends for a fall crafternoon as you create a burlap and lace autumn bunting.
This craft will give off a rustic vibe of burlap with an elegant touch of lace!
What you will need:
-½ yard burlap
-1 1/8 yard lace
-Hot glue gun and glue sticks
-Letter stencil or craft cutter
Start off by drawing six flag like shapes onto burlap material using the ruler and sharpie marker. Try to make the flags 6 1/2” wide at the top and 7” long. Next, cut a 2” strip of burlap the width of the burlap. Instead of hanging up plain burlap triangles, you’ll want to hand draw or use the letter stencil to add fun fall word, such as “autumn” or “pumpkin.”
After, go back to the strip of burlap you cut and fold the strip in half all the way down, use and iron to crease the burlap well. Go back and fold each rough edge under using the iron so you have crisp edges. Although this step isn’t too difficult, it does require some patience so keep that in mind as you craft.
Next, think about and measure how far apart you want your flags, typically they are 1 ½” apart. Take the tab you added at the top of each flag and put it in between the folded strip of burlap.
Now all you have to do is glue each flag in place with a hot glue gun and press the burlap strip together. When each flag is attached, measure and cut lace and glue it on each flag. There is a variety of lace trim you can choose from here at Lace Heaven that would look perfect with this festive burlap project!
