How to Make a Wedding Banner Save the Date
Next, cut the burlap into 8"x10" sections.You will need five pieces like this.
Next, cut the fabric into 9"x11" sections.You will need five pieces like this.
After cutting the burlap and fabric pieces out you will need the iron on adhesive strips.Lay a strip of adhesive out on the burlap to see from top to bottom how long a piece you need to use. Cut ten strips that size.
Now measure side-to-side (TIP:do not overlap adhesive strips with the ones that go from top to bottom. It will make taking off the paper much more difficult) and cut ten strips that size. Place each strip individually on the burlap and use an iron to adhere the strip to the burlap. Use the setting recommended by the adhesive strips to iron on the strip.
Before you peel off the adhesive you need to paint your date on the burlap.Use something like a piece of computer paper underneath so the paint wouldn't make a mess. Determine where you want to center your numbers before you paint them then get the black paint and paint your numbers.
- (TIP: use the burlap lines as a guide to help you keep your numbers straight!)
- TIP: Draw out a heart with sharpie on a piece of computer paper so that you can see it through the burlap and can easily follow the outline when painting. Allow paint time to dry before continuing to step 6.
After paint dries and adhesive cools (5 minutes), peel the white paper off.Get a piece of pre-cut material and lay it with the side you want to see face up on the table. Place the burlap on top (adhesive side down) and center it on the material. When centered, hold the burlap in place and flip over. Use the iron on the back of the fabric to heat up the adhesive so that it attaches the burlap to the fabric. Do this for all five pieces.
Measure out ribbon in the same way you did for the adhesive strips on the top, bottom and both sides of the fabric, not the burlap!Attach adhesive to the ribbon and after the adhesive cools, take off the white paper like before and attach the ribbon to the fabric.
When all five pieces are complete with ribbon you need to take scissors and clip four holes large enough to fit your twine through.These holes should be placed at the top of the banner on the fabric at equal intervals with the first and last holes being cut above the edge of the burlap on each side. Don't worry that the holes will be too large because you're going to hot glue the twine in place. You need to measure out about 15 feet (4.6 m) of twine just to be sure you have enough (you can always cut off excess later). Leave a few feet of excess twine for holding. Starting with the first number in your banner, take the twine and thread it through the holes from top to bottom as seen in the picture below. In the middle tie a bow and continue to thread the twine in the same manner so both sides match. Leave a bit of space between each banner piece and continue threading the banner through and adding bows. Be sure to leave another few feet of twine at the other end of the banner for holding. After finishing all pieces use a hot glue gun to hot glue the twine to the back of the fabric and on the knot in the bow to keep it from coming undone.
Ta-da, you're finished!It looks amazing and you saved a ton.

- When cutting burlap, cut straight along the line of burlap. This will help keep the burlap together. If any burlap does come unraveled you can snip the piece off.
- To get the pieces of burlap and fabric to be the exact same size I placed the original on the back of the new piece and trace with a pen then cut out.
- Iron any imperfections or fold marks out of the fabric BEFORE you adhere the burlap to it.
