4th of July burlap banner

 I've been wanting to make a little banner for my cute swing. Today was flag day so I decided to do a quick banner out of some burlap I had. Now I just need to make some cute 4th of July pillows to match. It's on my to-do list, if only there were more hours in the day!

I figured I needed about 9 rectangles to fit across my swing.
I cut them all 7''x10''

Next I folded it in half length wise so I could cut a triangle out of the bottom. 
fold the top over your rope, jute or string about an inch. Either sew down or use the trusty glue gun.
I'm sure you could iron on some cute letters. But,  I wanted mine done NOW so i just painted letters with acrylic paint.
