R & R Workshop: Polka Dot and Burlap Bunting- Tutorial

Polka Dot and Burlap Bunting- Tutorial

This post contains affiliate links. 

By now you probably know I really love polka dots! Always have, always will. And Polka dots and burlap... can't get any cuter then that! 

A friend of mine painted polka dots on a pair of her pants and I asked her how she made them look so perfect. She said she used a glue stick(with the cap-on)! Genius!! I have since bought a circle sponge to use for polka dots and it has made it easier and faster to add them to any project.

That got me thinking and I decided to put polka dots on a burlap banner I made. It was super easy and such a cute impact.

You will need:
//Fabric paint

1. The banner itself is very simple, but if you need a tutorial you can find one here.
2. Cut out pennants for banner from your burlap and put onto newspaper- now you are ready to paint those polka-dots!
3. Use a circle sponge and dip into paint and place onto burlap in any arrangement you would like. I liked mine a little closer together but less would be cute as well. It is really your preference.
4. Let dry. I would suggest for a few hours at least.
5. Hot glue pennants onto ribbon or string.
6. Hang it up! Perfect for little girl/boys room,  or any room in your home, parties or just for fun!

This cute project was part of Polka Dot Week!

I love this banner! I have used pencil erasers to make polka dots but never thought about glue stick caps. What a great idea.

I love, love, love the bunting and I have loads of unused burlap hanging around. Great idea.

Your banner is so cute, love love it. I'm already thinking of ways to make it in variety of ways just for fun. I have some other colors of burlap and wider burlap ribbon I could use also. Oh my old brain is just humming. What great inspiration. Saw the red trike with polka dots, so darned cute. Such a simple thing to make so much happy.
Happy Weekend
