Let's create a "4th of July" banner today! Easy to store with your holiday decorations and makes a statement every time! I have a big white frame that I like to change up and use to decorate. The background was created by piecing 5 pieces of 12" x 12" mambi paper together. Shhh ... Don't look too close, you might see the lines. Then I added the painted burlap banner, it's not hard, see below.
1. Add tape to create stripes. I used crafters tape but you can use the blue painters tape also.
2. Paint away!
3. Let the paint dry then peel the tape. I found that holding the banner down while pulling off the tape helped the burlap to unravel less.
4. Done with the banner, now add letters, embellishments, anything you'd like.
(side note: the banner was made by cutting out the triangles from a burlap piece and then I stapled on, yes, stapled, the string onto the banners.)
I used our mambi STICKS™ shown below, I love the glitter and how easy they are to use. They come in tons of colors so they'll be good for whatever type of banner you're making.
