Burlap Bunny Banner



Time for a Spring Craft Party!



Taking many of the fun trending elements:
Pin It!

burlap,

yarn poms,

chevron,

natural wood,

gray and white,

and putting them all together

make a sweet spring door welcome

or wall art.




To give the burlap a good firm base,

I used canvas (duck cloth) 

and painted it with 

watered down white flat paint.

Let it dry overnight.

You may need to paint the other side

to give it more stability.

Turn the edges under and glue with tacky glue.

Your canvas base will measure

18 1/2" x 25 1/2".


Pin It!

Cut a burlap rectangle measuring

15 1/2" x 19 1/2"

Pull off 4 threads from all 4 sides.

Hot glue two 18 1/2" pieces of lath

(we put a brown paint wash on ours)

to top and bottom of canvas.

Hot glue burlap around edges

(inside of fray)

to the center of the canvas.

Paint with white or cream inside of stencil.

Here is the stencil that I made in photoshop,

printed on cardstock,

covered front and back with packaging tape,

and cut out design.

I made another stencil that said 

"happy spring".

Many of the girls used that one.




Here is the pattern:






We made yarn poms

in gray, cream, and yellow

and attached with glue from the back.

Then trimmed up a smaller pom for the tail.

We used 1 yard lengths of chevron ribbon

cutting in half lengthwise.

Hot glue to back

(placing at an angle)

Double knot.

Then a bow.


















Pin It!

Always fun crafting with the girls!

Thanks for visiting my blog!
