DIY Project Parade and a Canvas and Burlap Banner tutorial

I’ve been working hard on a project this past week in hopes of sharing it today. However, it’s not quite yet done so stay tuned {hopefully} Monday to see my guest room double as my dressing room along with a fun giveaway!  {EDIT: Dressing Room/Closet Organization post here:} If I survive, that is.  I must be using muscles I don’t normally use to drill into the studs and to screw into to studs and I am out of shape sore!

So, today I’m sharing the banner I made a few weeks ago and posted at the DIY Club. A banner for our dining room mantel – Time to pray, eat & love…


  1. Canvas Corp. Burlap Minis {4}
  2. Canvas Corp. Canvas Shapes {5}
  3. Deco Art Americana {black}
  4. Deco Art Number Stencils
  5. Clock Stencils {from scrapbooking store}
  6. Foam brush {Rockler}
  7. Sharpie permanent marker or fabric Stain marker {black}
  8. Twine

1. On the four Canvas Corp. burlap minis, I wrote “T”, “I”, “M”, “E”.

2. Using a foam brush with Deco Art Americana in black stencil directly onto Canvas Corp. canvas shapes (triangles). I used Deco Art’s number stencils number “2” (love these stencils 0-9. They’re a great size and are going to get so much use!) and various clock stencils.

3. I stamped the words “love”, “eat” and “pray” on a three out of the five canvas shapes.

4. I laid out my five canvas shapes with “love”, “eat {2}” and “pray” as the center three. In between, I used the four burlap minis spelling “t-i-m-e”.

5. Using hot glue, I attached each banner triangle to twine, measuring a distance of 3 inches between each and tying a loop for hanging on the ends.

Each banner triangle has it’s own character…

Decorative reminder for dinner time to “pray, eat & love”.
