My littlest sister is getting married at the end of the month, hooray! And over here we are getting so so so excited for them! She will be the last one in our family to tie the knot...and she couldn't be doing it with a nicer guy (hi Nathan!) Since I can't really be over there (all the way in Seattle) to help them in person I asked if there was anything I could do here and mail out before the big date...you know I love wedding planning and decorating!!
Little sister's wedding is going to be in the colors gray and yellow. I can't wait to be out there at the end of the month to help her set things up, every time I speak to her it is sounding sweeter and more awesome than the last! Their plan is to make it a rustic wedding with cute signage, twinkle lights, and a donut wedding cake--be still my heart! One of the things she asked that I make for them is a "Be Married" banner made out of burlap flags that will hang behind their table at the reception. Hello! I can totally do that!!
Here's the 411 in case you need one of these sweet signs for a wedding in your future!
"Be Married" Burlap Wedding Banner
1 yard of burlap
rotary cutter and mat
sewing machine and thread
stenciled letters (I used my Cricut Mini but you could print of the computer too!)
marker for tracing letters
First cut out a template for the burlap flags. I made my flags to the dimensions above as I thought that allowed for nice sized letters you will be able to see from afar in a pretty large reception hall/banquet area. The flag size will allow the words "Be Married" and a Heart shape inbetween to hang on about 9 feet of twine with room on each end for tying up.
Cut out 10 flags using your template and cut on the fold. You should have enough burlap if you get one yard of it...you may want to get a wee bit more burlap if you think you might mess up!
If you cut a piece of wax paper and place it behind the flag before you paint the letters in it will help protect whatever surface you are painting on. The wax paper peels away nicely once the paint is dry too!
I hope they like it!
Thanks for stopping by today!!
