AIRMAIL PARTY DIY- Burlap Banner
I made my banners using a white burlap fabric. I thought I took pictures of the painting process, but I can't find them. So here are the step by steps of the painting.
I tape down the burlap on a tarp and using masking tape or painters tape evenly lay down where you don't want the paint to go. Press into fabric firmly.
Once your tape is down spray paint lightly, don't try and do a perfect thick coat of paint, this will bleed through the fabric. Once dry remove the tape.
I print of the shape I want onto card stock and then trace it putting it in all different directions on the fabric so that the lines don't match up.
You may line it with a trim, but it's not necessary. I used one I got on sale at Hobby Lobby and I use tacky glue to apply it.
I use the same glue to attach the pieces to your top trim that is going to hold your banner together.
Just a couple more tips:
You don't need much burlap, I think I used half a yard.
Use good fabric scissors.
You may use circle stickers or other shapes to make other deigns
