It’s officially college football season! I was getting pretty excited about the upcoming season (and hoping GT has a better season than last year) and decided I wanted to add a lil something to our living room. Since most of my recent crafts had been made with my Cricut, I was getting back to my roots with some burlap and paint.
Burlap Football Banner
What you’ll need:
- Burlap, ~1 yard
- White acrylic paint
- Paint brush
You can find the banner triangles precut at most craft shops, but since I had all the supplies at home I just cut mine myself!
I measured out triangles that were 6″ wide at the top, and 6″ long down the middle. Once I had the first triangle cut, I used it as a template for the other 6.
Next, paint little football laces on the burlap pieces with the white paint.
Thread the burlap on the twine or rope, through the holes that are already there (make one a lil bigger to get the rope through). Evenly space the burlap triangles out on the rope, and hang! Ours went on the mantle, below the tv where a lot of games will be watched 🙂
Now that the house is ready, let’s kick off the season! Go Jackets! And tigers…

OMG this is SO CUTE! I’m totally doing this- thanks for the great idea! Burlap everything! 🙂
Thanks! I had to cut out some burlap bc I used it everywhere, so am back on it! haha
LOVE this idea! I have like a floral garland handing above my TV. I think it needs replacing…
I bet the floral one is cute, but you’ve gotta rep your Gators! Haha
Love this for a football party! I could probably even do it without ruining a bunch of burlap first, too, haha! I’ll just ignore the Go Jackets at the end of the post 😉
Haha you could definitely do it without ruining a bunch of burlap! I wanna drink some frose while watching football btw
Definitely seems like an easy project, I would probably cheat with a pre-made burlap banner though 😉
I was soooo close to cheating, but had burlap ready and didn’t feel like leaving the house ?
This is AWESOME!!! I feel like even I could handle making one of these awesome banners 🙂
