So I’ve been planning on making one of these pendant banners for a while now and just haven’t gotten around to it:) Luckily for me when I went to MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) a few weeks ago they had one all ready and organized for us to do together. They had all the burlap fabric cut and ready for us to craft. Each triangle is 10″ long from top to tip and is 9″ across the top. We had different stencils for the lettering to choose from and some black paint. I ended up talking with the other moms for to long and didn’t get to finish my banner at MOPS. All I was able to do was paint the lettering on but it made for a fun project to finish during HB’s nap time.
Because I already had the hot glue gun out I decided to dress up my banner and add a cute little flower. I originally got the tutorial for this type of fabric rose from Vanessa over at V and Co who by the way has a ton of AMAZING tutorials.
Vanessa’s instructions and pictures are more detailed but you end up with this adorable little fabric flower
I used a stamping technique that I do on all the cards I make and added some black paint to the edges of the pendants to give it a little more for the eye.
