Looking for a fun new way to decorate your home for summer? Or perhaps you are preparing for an upcoming wedding or event? Today I am sharing this pretty corrugated faux metal homemade banner.
I’ve had it in my head for a while now that I wanted to host a nice backyard party. Not just your run of the mill backyard barbecue, but something a tad bit more formal. When I came across this corrugate banner I knew it would be perfect to hang along our back fence. Today I’ll walk you through the steps to transform this banner into faux metal and we’ll also embellish it up to finish off the rustic look and add a bit of elegance. This easy craft would look beautiful for an outdoor wedding and you can paint and assemble it in under 20 minutes!
- Corrugate Cut-Outs Banner Set
- Adhesive Back White Flowers
- Wired Linen Flowers
- Hot Glue Gun
- 1/8″ White Ribbon
- Silver Metallic Paint
- Paint Brush
Step one. You’ll start by painting your banner pieces. This is how they look right out of the package. Notice how they have the corrugate on the top and a wood base so they offer great quality and sturdiness.
Simply use a brush to apply the silver metallic finish paint to the top. To achieve a more natural metal look, I made sure to leave some brown peaking through in the seams and edges. This adds to the metallic effect making it appear more real. When you’ve got all your pieces painted, you’ll let them dry.
Next you’ll start applying your flowers. These white flowers were adhesive backed so I was able to just attach them directly. For the linen flowers, you’ll want to trim off the wire and hot glue them down.
