PEACE Burlap Banner

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Sharpie, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #StaplesSharpie http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO.

Its no surprise that banners and bunting are one of my favorite home decor items for holidays. I'm always looking for new variations to make. And today's banner was so simple to create, I know I will be making more soon! I made this fun PEACE banner using burlap and Sharpies! Can you believe it? It looks custom stamped! And with silver and gold being so on trend right now, the Sharpie metallic markers were the perfect accent for the banner.

Right now Staples is running a great deal on Sharpie markers! The 12-CT Assorted Color Pack and Twin-Tip packs are only $6 each and the Metallic Multi Pack is only $3.39. Such a great deal! I just had to snatch up these 3 sets. They can be used for so many things. Like my PEACE banner! Let me show you just how I made it.


I cut scrap burlap into 4x5 rectangles. Then I found the perfect font, printed out the letters for the banner, and cut them out to create a stencil.

I used the fine point of the Twin Tip black Sharpie to trace the stencil then filled it in with the wider tip end of the Twin Tip.

I used a 1" circle punch to create a circle template and used it to trace 2 gold circles on each piece of the banner. I went back and freehanded 3 smaller silver circles on each banner piece.

I printed a dove on cardstock and cut it out to use as a stencil. Trace the dove on the burlap with the gold Sharpie then color it in and cut it out. Make 2, facing opposite directions since we will be adding them to each end of the banner.

Next, I glued gold ribbon across the top each piece of the banner.
Also glue the doves on to the ribbon, letting them overlap slightly with the first and last piece of the banner.

It kind of looks like the dove is helping to hold up the banner, don't you think?

Isn't it fun? I'm thinking of all the cute banners I can make with the Sharpies now. Especially with all those fun colors!


Be sure to visit your local Staples to grab the 12-CT Multi Colored Pack, Metallic Assorted 4-CT Pack, and other fun Sharpie packs while they are on sale. They can be used on so many surfaces! Use them to create holiday ornaments, decorate gift wrap, customize mugs, and more!
