So, I have been working on this project for a few days and I am very excited to share it all with you. It’s a burlap thanksgiving banner and this is how I did it:
Here’s what I started with. Burlap, twine and a cool font from www.1001fonts.com (super awesome, check it out, it has a ton of free fonts).
The first thing I did was decide what I wanted to say and type out the letters. I added a triangle around each printed letter to make sure my letters would fit the pieces of my banner. Then I cut out each letter (this is where I spent hours wishing I had one of those crickit machines)
Now, take the cut out letters, lie them on the burlap and trace around them. I used brown sharpie so that if it showed a little at the end it wouldn’t be a big deal (it was a little hard to see when I got to the painting though, next time I might just use black).
And learned a valuable lesson. I have a new important phrase
Think it through
Before you glue
I thought about not posting this. I also thought about fixing it first and then posting like nothing happened. However, I decided to show it for what it is, in all its glory. I may fix it, I may not, I haven’t decided yet. It’s a memory :-)
