Guest Project: Monogrammed Burlap Garden Flag Tutorial

Monogrammed Burlap Garden Flag Tutorial

Hi! My name is Kelli, and most days you can find me blogging over at Random Thoughts of a SUPERMOM! I love to be crafty, bake yummy stuff, and take pictures of my three wild and crazy boys. And then I love to share about all of those things on my blog.

I am SUPER excited to be posting at Tatertots and Jello today! Jen is such a crafty inspiration, so it is a little intimidating to post one of my projects after all the great things she has shared about. But, I knew that I had to attempt something made out of burlap. I also wanted something for my yard, because the grass here is finally starting to turn green! So I came up with a Monogrammed Burlap Garden Flag that is SUPER easy and SUPER inexpensive to make.

Monogrammed Burlap Garden Flag Thanks so much to Jen for letting me share a little bit of my craftiness today! Hop on over to Random Thoughts of a SUPERMOM! to check out some of the other things I have been working on lately.

Thanks so much for guest posting, Kelli!

  1. Oh wow, LOVE it!! Garden flags are cute but I’ve never really found one in “my style”. Duh – I should make my own!

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Also, how do you keep the edges from fraying around the loop?? I’m not concerned about the sides b/c of the ribbon, but my loop is frayed. It actually looks kind of cool but was wondering your secret. :) Thanks!

  3. Kristen says:

    This is so cute!! Quick question– I know you said you doubled up the length of the burlap. What about the width? Did you just keep it the same as the size flag you wanted (12.5 in)? Thanks!

  4. So pretty! I have one of these mini flag holders, but I've never put it our because most of the flags are so cheesy. This is a great idea to make something a little more unique and classy for the yard. Love it!

    Does anyone know how it hold up in bad weather?

  15. Honestly, the burlap craze never really got to me. It is really cute and the things people made darling… but I did not see where or how I would fit it in my house….this however is something that would really suit me! I am glad you came up with the idea b/c this I am going to try!

  16. You are like the burlap QUEEN! I love it..keep the cute burlap ideas coming!

  17. Maridith @ Strictly Homemade says:

    Oh that is cute and made without a sewing machine. That is totally up my ally since my sewing machine is in the shop.

    I did not know they made Mod Podge Outdoors. That stuff is wonderful.

  18. Conner Cochran says:

    Are you from MS?! I grew up 30 min from MS State. I love the flag that you made, but I was super excited to see the Ms State flag too!

  19. That is just too cute. It really looks classy I love it!

  24. Carrie @ Dittle Dattle says:

    I've made a version of this before using a sewing and embroidery machine but your way is soooo much easier! I didn't know there was an outdoor Mod-Podge available. Too cool!

  25. THANK YOU! You have no idea how long I've been looking at those Hallmark flags and wondering how I could recreate them without that crazy price tag! LOVE this… thank you thank you!

  26. Love it! now I just need my new house and new yard so I can make one! LOL

  32. CosmoGirl Carla says:

    OH MY!!! I am squirming in my chair!!! I LOVE this project. I have so wanted one of those gorgeous, elegant monogramed garden flags for my front walk. But, quite honestly, I'm super-cheap, and didn't want to pay the sticker price.

    I am so making this project! Thanks a ton for sharing here, Kelli. And thanks to you, Jen. I can't wait to check out more of your blog, Kelli.

    With a big satisfied smile,

  33. Jenglamgirl says:

    Super cute Kelli! love it! way to go!

  34. Heidi@TheCraftMonkey says:

    this is such a great idea, we live in a small town & it seems like my neighbors & I always have the same flags {b/c of lack of choices in town} how great would it be to just make my own!

  35. Oh, my goodness…I have to make one of those! Love it!

  36. Cheryl @ a pretty cool life. says:

    Totally making this…I'm the only nerd on the block with a garden flag in front of the house and I don't care! :)

  37. 3 Blessings says:

    Love it!!! Thanks for sharing.

  38. That Kelli is so creative. Very cute!

  39. CourtneyKeb says:

    You know I can never bring myself to buy anything without at least trying to make it first and cheaper.

    and I NEVER thought of making this.

    Yours is super cute and very classy, and thanks so much for the inspiration!

  40. Stephanie Lynn says:

    What a fabulous idea!! I always have a hard time finding flag that fit my personality and never thought of making my own – genius! Love the way this turn out! Great job thanks for the tutorial!

  41. Cute as always Kelli! One day I'm going to make something. Thanks for introducing me to another crafty blog!

  42. Wonderful project and tutorial! This outdoor modge podge stuff is great. I did not even know it existed!

  43. Amanda @ Serenity Now says:
