{Tutorial} | Boo Pennant Banner

This week I'm doing a fall series! There will be a few fall/halloween DIYs followed with a BIG giveaway!

While you wait for Friday (the day the giveaway launches), here's the first tutorial!

What you'll need: 
-Burlap
-Acrylic Craft Paint
-Jute String
-Fray Check (Or any other type of anti-fray stuff)
-Scissors
-Paint Brush
-Glue Gun

{Step 1} Cut out your pennant shapes. I just used a ruler to make sure my edge was straight on the first, then used the first triangle to make the others.

{Step 2} Apply Fray Check to the edges of the pennant pieces. This keeps the burlap from completely unraveling.

{Step 3} Paint your letters or whatever else you'd like one your pennants using basic craft paint.

{Step 4} Using the glue gun, I glued the jute string to the backs of my pennants.

And there you have it! Now put this baby anywhere you want! Mine is quite small because I have plans to either use it on a wreath, frame, or jar, but I haven't made up my mind yet!
