Burlap & Lace Autumn Bunting

Good morning, wonderful friends! I’m excited to share my Burlap & Lace Autumn Bunting today! It is part of my Fall Mantel that I’m working on. I love this beautiful time of year as well as the rustic vibe of burlap with a little bit of elegant lace.

Cute, right? Well, even better is the fact that this bunting is no-sew! Booyah!

Burlap & Lace Autumn Bunting

Supplies Needed:

  • 1/2 yard burlap
  • 1 1/8 yard lace
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun & glue sticks
  • Sharpie marker
  • Letter stencil or craft cutter {if desired}

Draw six “flags” {hehe…six…flags} onto the burlap using the ruler and sharpie. I was going to make my flags 6 1/2″ wide by 6 1/2″ tall, but I decided to cut an extra 1/2″ tab at the top of each flag. So the flags are 6 1/2″ wide at the top and 7″ long.

Cut a 2″ strip of burlap the width of the burlap. I was working with 45″ burlap, so my strip was 2″ by 45.” You can make the strip longer or wider if you want.

I decided to use the word “autumn” for my bunting and instead of using a stencil, I just free-handed the letters. Easy peasy.

Back to the strip of burlap. This step isn’t hard, but it does require a little patience. Fold the strip in half all the way down, use and iron to crease the burlap well. Then go back and fold each rough edge under {again, using the iron}, so you have nice, crisp edges.

Next, measure out how far apart you want your flags. I set mine 1 1/2″ apart. The tab that I added at the top of each flag goes in between the folded strip of burlap.

Now, all you have to do is get in some hot gluing action! Glue each flag in place and press the burlap strip together. When each flag is attached, measure and cut lace and hot glue it on each flag.

That’s all there is to it! I love how easy this bunting banner was to put together. It’s the perfect finishing touch to my Fall mantel that I can’t wait to show you! :)

Have you pulled out your Fall decor yet? Are you excited about Fall?
