Falling For – Seasonal Bar Decor

The Fall decorating continues over to one of my favorite areas of my apartment, the bar!  Today I will show you how to make a really simple fall burlap banner, and how a few seasonal decorations can spruce up any area of your home.


When I saw the burlap paper (pictured below) at JoAnn Fabric Store, I knew my days of cutting up rolls of burlap were over.  Well, for making burlap signs anyway. burlap paper

I decided to keep it simple and use the whole sheet, but you could cut these individual sheets into any shapes you like!  The best part?  It has a backing on it so the burlap won’t shred, and it comes hole punched!


I just strung four pieces of the paper over some raffia string, because that is what I had around, but you can use any form of twine, rope, or ribbon.

I then cut those letters out as best I could.

I used a hot glue gun to attach the letters to the burlap, and then decided to attach the banner to some scrap wood that I had previously secured together.

And voila, done! Easiest banner I have ever made!


You may remember this rustic chandelier from the Vintage Bazaar, well I decided to hang it above the bar area, and dress it up for the season with some fake berries and leaves.


I accessorized the bar with a decorative runner (Pier 1), a wine tub and glass beverage dispenser (Home Goods), a decanter (Anthropologie), a martini shaker (Potter Barn), vintage scotch glasses (Etsy), and vintage bar items that I found thrift shopping which include the ice bucket, and a measuring cup that I used as a vase!


Really makes me want to fill the dispenser with some cider and cut up apples, or mix up a drink, in my new seasonal bar area!
