So, remember those craft projects I mentioned yesterday? Well, here's the first one! My friends and I decided to do this project after we saw something similar (and way cute!) on Etsy.
It's actually a very easy project. All you need is some burlap, scissors, some twine/jute, paints (in whatever colors you want), a paintbrush, and a hot glue gun (or a sewing machine would work).
First, cut out triangle pieces from the burlap.
Next, paint the pattern you want (we did polka dots) on the burlap. After that dries, paint the letters.
After you've painted all the triangles, cut a long length of jute that will be long enough for all the pendants and for being able to tie it off on your wall. Folding over the top of each pendant, hot glue them to the jute. (You could also sew them to the jute if you have a sewing machine).
Trim the edges.
And you're done!
We really enjoyed doing this project. It was fun, easy, and the finished result is really cute. I put it in me and Jason's family room, and since it's a nice focal point it kind of ties all the fall decorations in the room together.
I even made a mini one for the fridge!
If you decide to try it, have fun! I think I'll make a "Happy Birthday" one in the future.
