Today I am going to show you how to make a Thankful Burlap Banner.
- Fabric (in at least two patterns)
- Popcorn kernels
- Jute Twine or ribbon of your choice
- Green Ribbon
- Card stock
- Hot Glue or bonding of your choice
- Mini Clothespins
- Permanent Marker
I cut a rough shape out of card stock for the corn cobs, I used yellow card stock in case any of the kernels showed through. I used hot glue as my bonding agent and I found if I started on the outside edge and went around the kernels laid out more evenly. The key to using hot glue is to lay just a little glue down at a time or it will dry before your can place your kernels.
I found an easy way to glue the turkey handprints and letters as they were a bit floppy being made out of fabric.
Pick one end to start at, glue a small piece and attach to the burlap. Make sure you don't glue to your work surface....speaking from experience here.... Once I placed the glued end down, I would glue small sections at a time to make sure the letters and handprints lined up the way I wanted. With a permanent marker I drew legs and a beak directly on the burlap for the turkey handprints.
