{NEST} – Burlap {Painted} Pennant Banner

I worked on this PAINTED Pennant Banner this afternoon. Honestly, since I call my room the….
“SHABBY LOVE NEST” I can’t believe I didn’t think of this idea sooner. I TOTALLY LOVE it! and adore my shelf more now then EV-AH!

I first cut out a pennant shape from my cricut, I used the “Lyrical Letters” cricut cartridge for the pennant, and I cut it “Fit to Page!” so its pretty large. I then traced the pennant on burlap with a marker and cut the four shapes out. Then i cut out vinyl (i was being lazy and didn’t want to do the paper stencil) and then i placed the vinyl on the burlap (and it does stick) and with acrylic “Wicker White” paint I sponged the paint all over the burlap. Once dry I removed the vinyl and glued jute to the back.
