Thankful Banner

Photobucket
So...I have been loving the prospect of fall...if only it would get here already! I decided to make a fall/thanksgiving banner yesterday. I used burlap for the pennants and glitter because I had no craft paint :) and we all know I don't go to the store unless I have to. Battling two toddlers at the craft store is basically the worst thing ever. So, I had bought some stencils from Michaels and I traced them onto each pennant (each one measures around 7.5 in x 8 in) with a sharpie. Then, I filled each letter with modge podge and then sprinkled the glitter onto the modge podge. I tipped each letter upside down to shake off the excess glitter and set it aside to dry. Once the modge podge/glitter was dry I sprayed each pennant with aerosal hairspray to help any of the glitter from falling off. I'm hoping this will help keep the burlap from fraying too much...we'll see!

Then I hot glued ric rac onto the top of each letter and it's done! Easy peasy but super fun! I love me a good banner...
