I made a fall banner during our last Wine and Design at my friend Cassie's home. When she told me what we were making, I immediately thought, "burlap." Don't ask me why; I guess I knew that I wanted a rustic, country look and that I could achieve that with burlap. As usual, I wanted to use what I had on hand.
Hmm, as I sat at my kitchen table, I saw the burlap rice bags that I've been using for decor...those would do! I quickly measured and cut them into long triangle shapes and then gathered all my paper, scissors, glue and stencils and headed over to Cassie's, not really sure what I was going to do next.
Once I got there, I scoured my paper collection and decided to use a gingham gray and white. Since my letter stencils proved too big for my little triangles, I borrowed Cassie's mom's chipboard letters and traced them. Next, I glued them on to the burlap flags. I then traced some leaf stencils on to some fall colored papers and strategically glued them on to the burlap.
