Happy November, guys!  I really just cannot believe it.  It seems like we were just talking about letting summer go and now we’re really in full swing fall.  I know Halloween was just yesterday, but I feel like after the 31st things start to really speed toward Thanksgiving and Christmas.

This banner is so easy and tailoring the message to your occasion is so simple.  Don’t this project on burlap not only adds to the rustic harvesty feeling of fall, but also makes it easy to stitch together and makes the iron on letters a little more forgiving if they’re not perfect.

ONE print out your message on transfer paper (don’t forget to flip it to a mirror image). TWO Iron each letter onto your pieces of cut-out burlap. THREE while the paper is still hot, carefully peel back a corner of your letter.  If you feel any resistance or don’t see the image properly coming off, stick it back down and iron some more. FOUR using jute or hemp cording and a darning needle, stitch through the top of the banner letters to form a bunting.

It’s pretty easy, the hardest part is getting the letters just the right size and flipping the text, but I’ll take care of that for you!  Here is the give thanks printable document for you to just print out on your paper!

I’ve got mine hanging in the dining room, but it would be darling on a front door or mantle.


Have a wonderful Thursday!  Let me know if you try the project, I’d love to see photos!


p.s. I’m excited to announce two new November sponsors – Curious Home and Ella Lou!  I’m so excited to have both of these shops on board and I know you can’t wait to check them out!

  • I love it. And such a simple project.

    Thanksgiving is over up here, but I envision this pairing quite well with my Christmas decor. AND, randomly enough, I just so happen to have some spare burlap

  • So pretty Erin! This is a great idea and you can never have too much burlap in my opinion. Geez I can’t believe it’s November already.

  • This is beautiful! And, I love the burlap! I am definitely going to make this as part of our fall/Thanksgiving decorations.

  • I am definitely going to make this for Christmas! My boyfriend and I are finally going to spend the holidays together (after 4 years!!) and I want to hand make all the decor!

  • Awesome DIY! Definitely need to get burlap just for this!

  • So cute!

  • Hi Erin!
    I love this idea so much and want to tailor it for Christmas! Can you make a template for “Merry & Bright”? If not, maybe you could suggest a font that would work well? Also, can you pick up burlap at Michael’s/Hobby Lobby? Thanks so much, I will post my version and send it your way!

      • Thanks so much Erin! Can’t wait to see it and hang it! My boyfriend’s family is coming to visit us for the first time this weekend, and I am going to use these in our dining room 🙂

  • Love this banner! Do you mind sharing the font you used?
