A Burlap Banner

Kennedy’s burlap birthday party last night was a lot of fun!  I’ll share the whole party tomorrow but today I want to show you the burlap banner that I made for the wall above the table.

Inspired by this idea, I placed layered burlap in large, vintage wooden embroidery hoops {these hoops are probably eighteen inches across} …

… then, with white glue, I wrote “celebrate” in cursive across both hoops and sprinkled glitter over the letters.

The banner was a very subtle party decoration but so pretty!  The glitter caught the light and the large embroidery hoops looked great behind the table.
