DIY Fall Flag Banner

Fall! It's here! And I love it. 

Here in Sin City it's actually starting to feel chilly. Like when I say chilly, it's colder outside than it is inside. This NEVER happens. 

I started going crazy with this being my first fall with a home to decorate! 

I don't have a fireplace mantle to cover with pumpkins and cobwebs, but I do have this ledge that peeks out the kitchen to the living room. It was perfect for all of the decorations I wanted to put there. The only problem is I had none and a teeny weeny budget. So with a little craft party and thrift shopping, this is what you get...

Today I am going to teach you how to make the super cute flag banner for less than $1. For real. You don't want to miss this. 

What you're gonna need:

brown paper bag
jute rope/twine
awesome background music (optional) ((but really necessary))

I started by cutting out a flag shape of the paper bag with some scissors. 

I then attempted cute handwriting and wrote a letter on each bag with a black sharpie. You are bound to have one hanging around the house. 

I took the edge and folded it down to make a hole for the jute to go through and stapled it. 

2 minutes later you are done. Now you can spend the rest of the night enjoying apple cider and a scary movie. During the really scary parts you can look away at your new homemade fall decor! I wrote "HAPPY AUTUMN" on mine so I can keep it up until Christmas, but you can write whatever your little heart desires. 

Happy Friday!
