Burlap Flag Banner – 4th of July

Hi Brassy Apple readers! We are Trish and Bonnie from the craft blog, Uncommon! We are excited to be here today as part of sweet Megan’s… S.O.S. {Summer of Skills} series!?
We absolutely love seasonal decor and this Burlap Flag Banner is one of our favorites! Today I {Bonnie} am going to tell you how I created this simple, yet stunning, decoration…
I promised myself last year, that I would finish my Fourth of July porch decor and believe it or not, I did!! This banner was on the top of my list, it just screams patriotic!

 

Supplies Needed For American Flag Burlap Banner…

American flags {these came in a 3 pack in the Target dollar spot!}
Burlap fabric
Jute Twine
Sewing machine and thread
 I had snatched up the American flags when all the Fourth of July decorations went on clearance the previous year and I stored them away,with every intention of making this banner way before the 4th of July last year!! I actually had it done with a few days to spare!
My front porch is rather large, so I made four individual banners and tied two together on each side. Each banner has 6 flags sewn with a simple zig-zag stitch onto burlap rectangles. I then attached each rectangle to jute twine by simply folding the burlap over the twine and stitching in place!
I love the simplicity of this banner ! It alone would have made a beautiful porch, but instead I added a few other patriotic touches….
A few of these adorable American flag lanterns and…
Some patriotic porch pillows with a red burlap wreath for the front door!
LOVE how my patriotic porch turned out!
We are truly blessed to live in the “land of the free”…
A big “THANK YOU!” to Megan for having us today here at Brassy Apple! We would love to have you visit us at Uncommon! You can also find us on facebook, twitter, and pinterest !
