This Thankful banner was easy and fun to make. I actually used a Burlap Scrapbooking Paper Pad by DCWV. It made cutting, designing, sewing, and painting very easy. I also loved that it has a nice thick cardstock quality backing.
To make the flowers – simply take some scrap fabric and lay it flat. Pinch your two fingers right in the middle of the scrap fabric (the size or shape of fabric really doesn’t matter). Start twisting fabric starting from the middle where you are pinching. Once you have the desired look for your flower. Take a needle and thread and secure the flower. You do not need to be a seamstress to make these flowers, simply know how to thread a needle and poke it through fabric until it looks secure. Finally sew flower to the burlap paper.
The bow is made with some scrap fabric. Tied into a bow and sewn to the burlap paper.
This flower was made the same as the others. The only difference is the tule. Simply lay the scrap fabric out flat, place a piece of tule on top, and begin twisting fabric as explained previously. Secure closed with a needle and thread.
The letters were painted on with a stencil and black paint.
Finally with a hole punch add two holes to each banner piece and thread twine through holes. Space the banner pieces about 3-4 inches apart and hang.
