I was itching to make some sort of fall decor this weekend, so I raided my craft supplies to see what I could make. I found a pile of burlap from way back when and my leftover jute from my Jute Monogram Wreath. I decided it would be fun to make a burlap bunting banner.
I used Chicabug's free fabric bunting pattern to make my banner. I loved that it had 4 different sizes to use, because I wasn't exactly sure how big I wanted mine at first. I used hot glue to put my bunting banner together and hung it up in my dinette.
I decided it was too plain-jane and wasn't exactly what I had envisioned, so I went back to my craft supplies and found some red and orange ribbon and hot glued strips of both colors to each of the burlap pieces. When I hung it up for a second time, I was much happier with my final product. It is the perfect touch to my "mantle shelf" and looks great with my burlap and lace hurricanes!
The best part about this project? It cost me absolutely nothing to make!
It is great to know that I used all things I had on hand and created something fun to look at, instead of all the supplies just sitting in my basement taking up space.
Has anyone else ever made something with just supplies they already had on hand? If not, I am challenging you to do so. It is so much fun!
