If you’re looking for something a little bit different, Michaels recently started selling these fun half pumpkins, perfect for fall décor wall mounts and fun signs.  I grabbed a half pumpkin, grapevine wreath with a basket on the front and some floral embellishments.

The half pumpkin slips right into the basket. Now all I had to do was add some details.

How to print on burlap

You will be amazed with just the perfect trick you can print on burlap with your home printer. All you need is burlap and HeatnBond Lite. It is a fusible interfacing.

Cut a piece of the interfacing and the burlap each 8 1/2 inches X 11 inches.

Following the manufacturer’s instructions for the interfacing iron it to the burlap. Trim any any burlap or paper so it is exactly 8 1/2 inches X 11 inches or slightly smaller.

Place the interfacing backed burlap in your printer tray so that it will print on the burlap. For my printer I placed the burlap face down. Download the welcome bunting template and print.  It prints like butter! I am thrilled every time I do it! It just doesn’t seem possible but it works!

Peel away the paper backing from the interfacing. There will be a film left on the burlap.  This film is heat sensitive so for another purpose you could iron the burlap to something. In this case, it gives the burlap weight and keeps the edges from fraying.

Cut out the flags.

Wrap the top of the flag over a piece of twine and fasten with hot glue.
