Creating Simple, Easy Fall Crafts

I'll be the first to admit that this first project took absolutely no skill or imagination.  I've noticed that everyone is making banners to use in their fall decor, so I decided to make one. 

First I cut a piece of jute twine, didn't even measure because I knew it could be cut   shorter.  I eyeballed and cut a pennant shaped piece from a brown paper grocery bag, then used it to cut three more pieces of the same size.  I then stenciled 
F A L L on it in orange paint and stapled the paper to the twine.  Here it is!
