DIY Burlap Flag + Giveaway

It’s finally college football season and so in true Southern fashion, we are dedicating this week to all things collegiate. We will be sharing our favorite crafts, decorations, dog attire and tailgating recipes all with school spirit (of course, you can use any of the crafts for any holiday or just general decorations). To kick off School Spirit Week, we hosted a Collegiate Craft Party with a few girlfriends. The ladies voted on these adorable DIY Burlap Flags.

We hope you love these little flags as much as we do so we’ve decided to do a Giveaway! All you have to do is Share our blog on your Facebook page or subscribe to receive emails from us. All instructions are at the end of this post. We’ll create any design on your Burlap Flag!

Next week, we will post the (easy) tutorial on how to sew the burlap flags but for now we’ll focus on the designing and painting!

The ladies were provided with chevron stencils and their favorite college logo. Our ladies represented the fine universities of Georgia, Mississippi State, Tennessee, Florida State and the Atlanta Braves. They did an amazing job with their color combinations, painting and of course, troubleshooting! Some of the ladies decided to trace their stencils while others used the old fashion stenciling technique of ‘blotting.’

Jenna chose gray and white stripes to coordinate with Mississippi State’s colors. She also mixed the perfect Maroon shade for the main logo.

Go Dawgs!

Next up, Kaitlin requested an Atlanta Braves flag. If you have ever tried to find a small garden flag for any MLB team, you know they are very difficult to find so this was a perfect solution! Daughter is also making one for her home.
