Last week I was working on a few projects for my dining room, it is all done and ready for all the Patriotic celebrations ahead of us.
When I saw the PB patriotic banner it was instant love! I wanted to replicate it with things I already had around the house. So, for me this project was pretty much free.
The first thing I checked was my pile of fabric remnants. A piece of white cotton fabric was used.
-A loooong rectangle, 10" wide was cut.
-On one side of the rectangle small marks were done every four inches.
-On the other side the first mark was done at two inches from the beginning and then every 4".
-The marks were traced and then cut out
All the triangles were spray painted a light coat of Rust-oleum Heirloom white, to give them an aged look.
Every other triangle was then taped as shown in the picture below, to create the stripes.
The other triangles were covered to prevent them from being painted.
A light coat of red spray paint was applied, I was going for a light faded look.
Once the paint has dried you can work on the other triangles. Attach the star stickers, cover the triangles you don't want to paint and begin painting over the stickers with the blue paint.
Using the sticky side of a piece of tape give the edges that frayed look.
The patriotic banner is now ready to be displayed...
Wherever you want to celebrate!
I'll be back soon with more projects for this room.
Have a great Memorial Day!
