Burlap Christmas Banner

Last month I was inspired by my friend Amy, at Eat.Sleep.Decorate, when she posted her Halloween Decor. She made 2 adorable burlap banners to decorate for Fall and Halloween. One said "Fall" and then other said "Boo".

I had some left over burlap scraps from my Burlap Wreath so I decided to use them for a Christmas Banner to go across our mantle.

I started by trimming my scraps to be close in size.

I used a sharpie to write out "Merry Christmas", one letter per burlap square.

Then, I used hot glue to attach the letters to twine.

Lastly, I hung it on our mantle.

I haven't pulled out our other decorations yet so it may move if it conflicts with our stockings!

I am going to be away from blogland through Thanksgiving! We are going to be with family on Thursday and then off on a cruise to the Bahamas for a long weekend getaway with my family! I am so thankful for all of you who read along and support me! Have a great relaxing holiday with those you love! 


  1. I love it Katie! Thanks for the shout out! I am totally in love with burlap! I also love the shelves that flank your fireplace. They really transform your space!

  3. Random question: how is having your tv on top of the mantle? Are you able to watch shows easily or do you find yourself craning your neck upwards a lot? I ask because the best place for my tv is above the mantle (i.e. aesthetically speaking), but my bf doesn't think like the idea of having to look up at the tv. are your sofas close to the tv or are they pretty far back that it doesn't make a difference? thanks for any information you can give.

    p.s. love your banner btw :)
