Guest Post: Dare to Dream

Now that Halloween is over it's time to decorate for the usually skipped over holiday, Thanksgiving! I've got Jessica here from Dare to Dream showing us how to make a Thanksgiving bunting.
This was super easy, just using burlap, twine, fabric paint, stencils and a stencil paint brush. I went with thankful, because it seemed very appropriate. Here are photos showing you how I did this -

 Start by making a template of a triangle, then use that to cut your burlap.

 Using a paper plate, or whatever you have around, lay your stencil on the burlap, and paint away.

 Peel your stencil up, and let your paint dry... warning - the front and BACK will be wet, so seriously, let them dry completely!

 Once all dried, fold the top of your fabric over and using a fabric hole punch, make a hole on both sides.

 It will look like this. The holes are so you can string your twine or ribbon through.

 HANG AND ENJOY! ISN'T IT JUST ADORABLE!!! SOOOOO VERY THANKFUL!

 I have always loved a mantel, especially during the holiday seasons... it is the most fun to decorate!

Also added a little of the twine around this vase holding dried hay... I just can't get enough.

Thanks so much Jessica! Be sure to swing by her blog, Dare to Dream, and check it out!
