Burlap Pennant & Chicken Wire Frame

Another Witches Walk project to share with you today.
You can read more about Witches Walk here.

I had so much fun taking all my blogland inspiration and creating
thrifty decor for our event last weekend.

Here are my
{Burlap Pennants}

I made the burlap pennants for the {Train Rides} entrance.
They were super easy and inexpensive.

At home I simply drew a template to use and cut all of my burlap pennants.
It didn't matter to me at all if they were a little imperfect and rustic.
I printed the {Train Rides} out on the computer.
Then I used a little round pencil cup (you could use anything round) to trace around the letter.
I cut out my letters and then made a little larger round circle with the book page paper.
I hot glued each piece and  layered them on the burlap.
I wanted to make sure they would be sturdy as they were going to be outdoors for the event.
They held up great all day.

Another quick tip I did was instead of taking the time to sew a hem to feed my string through,
I simply feed the string right through the burlap.
It worked great when we set up at the event I had my pennants ready to hang
and could quickly adjust the pennants on the string to make sure they were evenly spaced.

{Chicken Wire Frames}

Another fun idea was the chicken wire frames.
You just frame out a large chicken wire piece on both sides and
 create the perfect country chic frame or fence piece.
