Barn quilts are hardly a new concept, a matter of fact they've been around for hundreds of years but I've been noticing them remerging as a fun, farmhouse wall decor trend lately and I admit I'm quite smitten with them!
Incase you're scratching your head wondering what a barn quilt is (trust me, I was at one time too), they are essentially a large hand-painted piece of wood, typically comprised of geometric shapes, made to resemble a single quilt block. Back in the day people would hang these on the side or fronts of their barns. There's even a whole barn quilt trail you can tour if your heart so desires!
I thought these printable banners would be a perfect way to honor this tradition and to add a little farmhouse charm to your home.
I created two different barn quilt patterns and designed a pair in black too. If you wanted, you could frame all of these to create a fun farmhouse style gallery wall!

How to make a wood hanger for your banner.
Balsa Wood ( I purchased this project bag so I could make a few banners)
Upholstery or Heavy Duty Stapler
Scissors or Paper Trimmer
1. After downloading and printing your barn quilt on cardstock, take your strip of Balsa wood and line it up at the top edge of your cardstock and mark the width you'll want to cut your banner. I also trimmed off a little at the bottom of my cardstock right below the barn quilt pattern.
2. Stain your Balsa wood and allow to dry.
3. Once the wood has dried, cut your twine and attach the twine and banner to the back of the wood with an upholstery or heavy duty stapler.
Really simple, right? I love finding ways to add that farmhouse charm without breaking the bank.
