Sponge Stenciling Brushes
I used my rotary cutter and quilting ruler to measure and cut the sizes I wanted for each pennant, but honestly you could easily cut the burlap garland with regular scissors. Once your individual pennants or flags are cut, brush some fray check on the edges. Simply stencil the letters or design you want onto the burlap and allow it to dry. Since the burlap garland has such an open weave, I stenciled on top of an old piece of cardboard.
This was the first time I had used fray check, and I was pleased at how it preserved the edges of the burlap and prevented further unraveling, even under these unusual circumstances. Once I was able to reclaim my project, I outlined the letters with the paint marker and hung the banner up on our fireplace, safely out of the cat's reach.
