Glitter Fringed Burlap Banner & An All Things Burlap Blog Hop!

Happy Monday everyone! This is an extra special Monday around here, because we are celebrating ALL THINGS BURLAP!! Ten bloggers, ten fabulous burlap projects! I am sooo excited to be kicking off this party with my simple little project.

My project is a simple one, but I absolutely love the impact it has on my mantel. It’s would be perfect year round, but burlap is such a rich and rustic fabric, that is just SCREAMS “Fall!”

It was so easy to make, it’s the perfect naptime project.

Here’s what you need to make your own:

Burlap
Twine
Gold Metallic spray paint
Glitter Paint

Yup, that’s pretty much it.

Fist I cut the burlap into rectangles and carefully pulled layers of string off of one end.

*Be sure not to accidentally grasp the sides as well, or your banner will get skinnier as you go along!

I pulled strings until I was happy with the length.

Once they were finished, I laid them out on a dropcloth and sprayed them with Rustoleum Metallic Champagne Mist. Burlap soaks up paint like nobody’s business, so I had to do three coats, and it was still hard to make out a real difference. I do think this helped the next step go smoother though.

Next I painted each piece, using a foam brush, with Folk Art Extreme Glitter Paint in Champagne. (No pics of this step – it was too dark – but I’m sure you can use your imagination.

I only did one coat of the glitter paint, although I probably could have done a second coat. I didn’t want it too glittery, just a subtle bit of sparkle.

The final step was to hot glue twine to the back. I spaced the pieces out on the table. You could also use a large needle to sew the twine in, but I wanted the pieces to stay put and not slide around one I hung it up.

It was a pretty easy project with just a few steps.

I just love how it looks on my mantel and it goes perfectly with my antique Ball jar collection.
