Pottery Barn Knock Off Trick or Treat Banner

It is not a secret I love Pottery Barn but sadly I do not love their prices! I understand you pay for quality but even when “on sale” most of their items are overpriced. In some cases it’s pretty easy to knock off their items, for example banners, art work, and certain home d├ęcor items.

It was a love at first sight when I saw their “Trick or Treat” burlap banner at the store a month ago. When I saw the price I knew that I would be able to make one myself for the fraction of the cost.  We are trying to become diligent with decorating our front porch and I knew this would be the perfect addition. No rain in Southern California means I can put practically anything outside.

It took me about an hour for the whole project (my favorite kind of projects). Here is what you need:

1/2 to 1 yard of burlap, depending on the size of the flags

Stencil for the flags

Marker/Scissors?Glue Gun or Fabric Glue

Paint

Twine

Since I am a visual person here are the instructions in photos:
