4th of July Painted Burlap Banner

4th of July Painted Burlap BannerWho’s getting their patriotic decor out?  I am, it’s time to bring on the red, white and blue decor.  Last year I made this 4th of July Painted Burlap Banner for the DecoArt blog and totally forgot to share it here, so today I’m showing you how easy it was to put together.  

Supplies:

Americana Decor Chalky Finish paint (Rouge – Red, Everlasting – White, Legacy – Blue)
Burlap cut into 4 x 6″ pieces
Foam brushes
Painters tape
Jute twine
Glue gun

4th of July Painted Burlap BannerCut your burlap into 4 x 6″ pieces/flags.  You can make these any shape or size you like, a basic rectangle will be easiest.

I used painters tape and cut each piece of tape in half lengthwise to create 1/2″ stripes on my burlap. Press firmly.

Using a foam brush just dab your red paint for the stripes.  You will only need to do one coat since this paint covers so well.  Set aside to dry.

For the blue pieces, I just painted the entire piece of burlap and let dry.  Once dry you could do one of two things either paint simple polka dots with the white paint or you could create a stencil and paint stars.  I went with the simple polka dots and just used the wood end of my foam brush for the dots.
