Number One - Make a Merry Christmas bunting banner.
White shabby bows and silver bells.
It is hard to see the bunting properly in this light, but when I stand in my kitchen and look across at this window, it really looks lovely.
To make the bunting,I:
Cut out the triangles for the bunting (template from Madison magazine here)
Printed the letters for Merry Christmas in Mongolian Baiti 200 point on the printer
Used an exacto knife to cut out the letters to form a stencil
Stencilled the letters onto the burlap using black fabric paint.
Sewed the bunting together using white cotton bias binding
Tied the bunting onto a tree branch
Ripped strips of white cotton and tied it to the tree branch
Attached silver Christmas tree decorations that I found in Choice
and attached the whole banner to the timber blind pelmet using fishing wire.
Now, what else can I make from burlap?
