Easter Count Down Banner
Updated: Apr 14, 2019
I'm excited about this Easter Count Down.
I was very simple to make, I know you probably here that all the time. But, this time it's true.
I didn't want to buy anything, and I had ordered these bag in a set of 10, for a Christmas present. Lucky I still had 7 left. If you want to order them they are on Amazon:
I also have a lot of ribbons. I bought most of them at Walmart. I pulled the "Jute" rope out of the draw string part of the bag and added ribbon.
The next part, is adding the letters. I know Burlap is paintable, and I could have made this so much easier. But, I have a lot of fabric scraps, that I love and wanted to use.
So I printed off some letters, and I painfully cut them all out. I wish I had a cricket, but I don't.
After I cut them out, I ironed them on to the burlap sacks with "Wonder Under". I guess it is also called Pellon. Here is a Youtube if you want to do it that way.
But, you can also fabric glue them.
I didn't like how my letters weren't as bold as I wanted them to be, so I bought a Fabric marker from Walmart...so I guess I did buy something.
I sewed the back part of the bags onto a ribbon.
Then I put up Command Strips and it was hard to wait the hour that it tells you to, before I could hang it. But, it did pass, and here is the finish product.
Well, not finish yet. I've got to put the Come Follow Me Activities inside. Here is a link to those Easter Activities.
Hey guys. I found another free Easter Count down.
Isn't it cute! She also does free "Come Follow Me" activities and Lesson plans.
