Thanksgiving Burlap Bunting

I never decorate for Thanksgiving. I typically use the time between Halloween and Christmas to mentally prepare myself for the madness that is decorating for Christmas. But I whipped up a small Thanksgiving project for the ‘be thankful’ portion of the Dare to DIY series I’m co-hosting with Kim, Michelle, and Rachel. And I knew the perfect place for my creation– on the card catalog, of course.

Honestly, I wanted the bunting to say ‘give turkey’ but I figured ‘give thanks’ was a more practical approach.

This project was pretty easy to execute and took about an hour to make. I used leftover burlap from my ruffled burlap table runner project and a bunting template, which I edited because I have perfection issues, for the the bunting flags. The letters were stenciled on with acrylic paint . The stencils were created with my Silhouette (speaking of Silhouettes, have you entered the Silhouette giveaway?). And I hot glued the flags to grosgrain ribbon. I had all the materials on hand so I spent a whopping $0 to create this festive burlap bunting.

I think it looks pretty good tied onto the card catalog. But then again I think you could tie underwear to the card catalog and it would still look good. It’s like Channing Tatum. That man would look smokin’ in a potato sack. Or underwear. Or burlap bunting.

Jack even agrees that the bunting looks great on the card catalog. And he’s picky about his endorsements.

  1. Well done! I just love the versatility of burlap. And look at your puppy posing 🙂 So dang cute.

    I’ll be posting my project tonight! Channing might have to make an appearance…

  2. Well, great. Now I’m picturing your burlap bunting being wound around Channing Tatum. And I can’t say I dislike it, but it’s not how I planned to start my Friday. Your bunting is super cute . . . even if it’s just on your card catalog instead of a certain sexiest man alive 🙂

  3. Jack approved. And Channing Tatum approved, apparantly.

    Looks great! And I love a good thrifty project!

  4. Looks great! I was wondering where you got your chevron pillow. It is so cute!

    1. Thanks, Katelyn! I scored the pillow and its twin back in March at my home away from home, Home Goods.

  5. I would totally keep it! I’m dying to get one.

  8. The bunting turned out great, and your little doggie model is precious!

  9. pretty! i’m new to your blog and i just love the whole look of that room – dog included!!

  10. I totally agree with you about not decorating for Thanksgiving. I barely got around to Halloween this year because I am so excited about living in a house this year during Christmas that I have been planning since mid-October. I blame Pinterest. Thanks for this great challenge can’t wait to see what everyone does next week.

  11. Love the burlap! I’ve had a hankering to play with burlap since seeing it at a tabletop event last week. I think it will be making an appearance soon in a Christmas tablescape. Thanks for the fun link party!

  12. Love, love, love that card catalogue! Your banner looks quite at home there! Great job!
