Remember my spring banner that I made for the craft party I hosted a couple weekends ago? I thought I’d show you how to make one for yourself. I actually was inspired by a similiar banner that I spotted at Target and thought that it would be easy enough to make myself. I was right. While a little time consuming, this is a simple project that is oh so cute! It might just inspire you to throw a craft party of your own.

Pink Felt, 6 – 8 1/2″ x 11″ stiffened sheets
White Felt, approximately 6 – 8 1/2″ x 11″ sticky stiffened sheets
1/2 Yard Burlap
Heat-n-Bond No-Sew Iron-On Adhesive
Hemp String
6 Clothespins
2 Pieces of Cardstock
Letter Stencils (store bought or handmade)
Rotary Cutter/Cutting Mat (optional)
Spring Burlap Bunting DIY
Step 1: Make 2 flag templates out of cardstock, one slightly larger than the other. Draw your flag shape of choice on cardstock and cut it out. You could make traditional triangular bunting flags or circles or a similiar shape to mine. Make sure the smaller flag template is large enough for the SPRING letters.

Step 2: Trace the larger flag template onto the 6 sheets of stiffened pink felt. Cut out the flags.

Step 3: Iron on a piece of Heat-n-Bond to the burlap. You might need more or less burlap, depending on how large your flags are.

Step 4: Trace the smaller flag template onto the back of the Heat-n-Bond 6 times. Cut the flags out using a rotary cutter or scissors.
Step 5: Iron on the burlap flags to the pink felt flags.

Step 6: Trace the S-P-R-I-N-G letters onto the back of the sticky stiffened white felt sheets. Make sure to trace the letters backwards so they will face the right direction when you flip them over, felt-side up. You could easily make your own stencils by printing out S-P-R-I-N-G on cardstock and cutting out each letter.
Step 7: Cut out the S-P-R-I-N-G letters, peel off the sticky backing and stick to the flags.
Step 8: Hang up the hemp string and attach the flags to the string using clothespins.

  1. Fingers crossed, this week when I was at Hobby Lobby there was a bundle of burlap in the remnants bin. I’ll have to check back this week and see if it’s still there. Since I have some nieces and/or nephews on their way this would be a cute shower idea with their names.

  2. What a wonderful versatile project this is. You sure have inspired me. Think I’ll make one of those for daughter’s anniversary next month. She always feels like their anniversary gets kind of shoved aside. I can’t buy them anything but can make this for them. She tells me she never knows what I’ll come up with since I’ve been giving them all hand made gifts for all occasions.
    thanks for great tutorial and sharing.

  3. very pretty this bunting! I love the contrasts in color and material; rough burlap and soft felt. Lovely, thank you for sharing!
