I love homemade crafts as opposed to a store bought sign, and I saw this amazingly cute banner on Post Road Vintage and had to try it out for myself.
I followed PRVs instructions pretty closely, but I strayed a little to customize it to match my BBQ themed invites, which inspired my entire party.

Step 1: Cut a rectangle out of card stock – I did about the same size as PRVs, about a half a letter size sheet of paper. Then cut the fabric to be about a quarter in bigger than the paper. It’s better to overshoot on this, because you can always trim later.
Step 2. Sew the paper to the cut burlap
Step 3: Once the paper is alls sewn on, fold the rectangles accordion style, making sure that the first and last folds are folded paper sides together. Tie string tightly around the center to secure.
Step 4: Then just stitch the paper ends together to make a circle.
Step 5: Print the letters for your message on cardstock. I used the typeface, Rosewood Fill, to match my invites. The circles I used are 3.5”. I wrapped the extra string in on itself to create a little platform for the circles, then I hot glued everything together.
Step 6: Use a small needle and thread to sew the individual pieces to a large strip of thick twine or ribbon.
Now just hang!
This took me about 3 hours to complete, but was overall pretty easy. It’s a great project because you can really make it your own with different materials and words. I will definitely be using this for more occasions!
