DIY Burlap Candy Corn Banner – Easy Tutorial

One of my favorite fall decor staples is candy corn!! Whether you enjoy the candy or not, the yellow, orange, and white pieces make the cutest decor in wood, clay, or in this case… a DIY burlap candy corn banner!! It all started with this GREAT clearance find at Hobby Lobby that we’ll transform in the cutest banner.

I’m never one to pass up a clearance find, especially on something so versatile as a burlap banner! This was definitely a score for $1.49! Basically I’ll just be adding paint to this and it’s going to be transformed into beautiful fall goodness!! The banner has twelve pennants but I’ll only be using seven for this project.

First up I’ll be using Anita’s acrylic paint in Bright Yellow, Pumpkin, and White. I’ll start with the white and paint the tip of each pennant. The candy corns will be hanging upside down since this is a banner. The middle section I’ll paint Pumpkin and then the top will be painted Bright Yellow.

During the painting process be sure to have napkins or paper under the pennants because the paint will definitely soak through the burlap. I’ll paint each pennant tip white and allow those to dry before painting the next color.

Next I’ll continue with the Pumpkin for the middle section, and finish off the top with the Bright Yellow. Painting each color and allowing drying time makes the project less messy but takes a little more time.

Once the paint is completely dry the burlap pennants will curl a little so I’ll put each pennant between some parchment paper and iron them flat again.

Now that the paint is dry I’ll add some Distress Ink to the edges to give each pennant a more primitive look.

The finishing touch…

Lastly, I have one more detail to add! I’m tearing eight strips of white material and coffee staining them before adding them to the banner, securing them between each pennant.
