- Cardboard box.
- Rough fabric, such as burlap (I had muslin so used it).
- Fabric paint.
- Paint brush.
- Twine (I didn't have this so used jute rope).
- Hot glue gun.
Step 1: Using an old cardboard box, create a stencil for the banners in the shape of a triangle.
Step 2: Use the stencil to trace and cut 8 triangles from your fabric.
Step 3: Using the fabric paint, write your letters on the cut fabric. Be sure to put something under the fabric as you paint. You can use stencils if you don't feel confident writing freehand.
Step 4: Lay down the rope or twine in the same shape it will be hung. You want it as close as possible to its hanging shape so the letters line up on the correct side of the string. Take your hot glue gun and glue the letters to your twine/rope.
Step 5: Hang! I used small thumb tacks to keep the banner in place.
Sorry for the messy final picture. Some of us work and aren't home during daylight.
This year, we will be joining Jeff's family in Portland to celebrate Thanksgiving. And it also happens to be his sister's birthday, so we will be celebrating her as well. I can't wait!
I'm thankful for this guy.
