For this week's projects, I have two burlap items.
First up is a JOY banner.
You will need:
Polka Dot Stencil
Red Acrylic Paint
Three Various Small Red Print Ribbons
Red Jute Twine
First, bond your burlap onto the interfacing. Then, cut out three pennants - mine measure 9 1/2" long by
7 1/2" at the top.
Nest, stencil polka dots onto the white burlap. I found just a basic dotted stencil at Michaels'.
Trace your JOY letters onto Wonder Under and bond and cut out. Remember to reverse the letters when you trace them. Press them onto the pennants.
Turn down about 1/2" and press at the top. Then hot glue the red jute twine under where you have folded the top. I used hot glue so it would adhere quickly. (I like everything to go quickly - LOL) Be sure to leave enough twine on the ends to hang with.
Project #1 today - done!!
Now, to the next project.
You will need:
1 yard upholstery webbing
Red Jute Twin
Black Magic Marker
Big Jingle bell
Cut out letters for the lettering
Trace the words JINGLE onto the webbing with a magic marker. I used a Sharpie. Then fill in the letters with the Sharpie.
Fold the top down about 1/2" and hot glue down inserting the red jute twine in as a hanger.
Trim the bottom to a V and sew the large jingle bell to the point of the hanging.
You're done with project #2.
I think I will probably add a big red bow at the top of this. It just needs that.
I used some cardboard cut out letters and just traced around them for the JINGLE hanging. I try to keep several alphabets in different sizes for various projects.
