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…
