Burlap Banner Supplies

1. Cut out 5 (or more) 6” long triangles from your burlap. Round the corners off to make them candy corn shaped.

2. Paint the top 2” white using acrylic paint. You can use a strip of masking tape as a guide to get straight lines if you need to. Be sure to get paint in all of the holes in the burlap. This might more than one of coat of paint.

3. Using your orange acrylic paint, paint the next 2” in the middle of the candy corn, below the white. Apply more masking tape if you need a guide for straight lines.

Paint over with orange

4. On the bottom 2” of your burlap candy corn, use yellow acrylic paint to color it. I had used Yellow burlap, so I didn’t have to paint the yellow on mine, but if you’re using regular burlap be sure to paint the bottom 2” yellow.

5. Cut a 50” piece of ribbon. (Or longer, depending on how many candy corns you make) and place your candy corn out evenly along the ribbon, pinning the ribbon to the burlap candy corn.

6. Using your sewing machine (or needle and thread) stitch down the ribbon to your candy corn banners.
