Stars & Stripes Bunting

Happy {Flag} Day!  

This darling stars & stripes bunting is the perfect project to celebrate today, as well as the 4th of July.  It's super easy to do, and you can get it done in less than two hours--and that's mostly drying time! It would be so cute in a doorway, window, on a mantel or backyard fence, or as decoration behind your holiday table.

I used the darker idaho potato colored burlap, and I {love} it.  The paint colors are Rustoleum's Navy Blue (Gloss) and Colonial Red (Satin). I really recommend that you use spray paint, as opposed to craft paint. Craft paint will soak through the burlap, saturating it much more than the lightness of spray paint. It also has more of a tendency to bleed under the tape, and you won't get those crisp lines.  The burlap is so rough, that it's hard to get a tight enough seal to use craft paint.




Here's how you can make one of your own!


♥ burlap
♥ painters tape or strips of vinyl for stripes
♥ vinyl stars, or even stickers
♥  navy and red spray paint
♥ jute (twine)
♥ hot glue gun






And you're done! Easy peasy.
