USA Pennant Banner

Now that I’m back to reality I realized that I better get busy with my 4th of July projects before the time comes and goes. Holiday crafting is always hard for me, I usually have more ideas than time. I always vow to start earlier than the year before. So lets not waste anytime and lets check out my USA Pennant Banner.
Wanna tutorial? Well your getting one either way ; )
Supplies:
Burlap Pennant Shapes (5)
Chipboard Letters & Shapes
Glitter
Mod Podge
Twine
The first thing I did was glitter the chipboard letters and stars. I added a layer of Mod Podge to the fronts of the chipboard and covered them in Martha Stewart Glitter. I alternated between red and blue glitter.
Shake off the excess glitter and allow the Mod Podge to dry. Once it is dry, add another layer of Mod Podge to seal in the glitter. It may appear to dull the glitter a little but in my opinion it’s better than having glitter all over the place.
I used hot glue to attach the chipboard to the burlap pennant pieces and the pennant pieces to the twine.
There it is all finished in it’s star spangled glory.
The burlap against the glittery letters makes me so happy. Glitter and the 4th of July go together like….well….like fireworks and the 4th of July!!!
I love it strung up on my white picket fence. Although it would look great strung up on a mantel or shelf too.
What do you think of myย USA Pennant Banner? Have you been up to any patriotic projects lately???
Linking up to these great link parties!!!

  11. This is sooooo cool! (obviously I’d make it non US themed as I live in the UK!) Hessian (burlap) is hard to get here. Love the shape of the flags on your bunting!
