It's a Banner Day!
Janis of Pause Dream Enjoy and I have decided that once a month we will each make a banner for our home decor this year. Fun right? I love to make banners!! Today is our first post and we will be showing you the banners we made for February.
Here is the banner that I made for this month:
I decided to make a banner to decorate my newly acquired crafty space. I have been crafting in the corner of our living room for the past few years. Recently I decided, with some encouragement from my husband, to take the dining room. We never really used it anymore since our kids are grown so it worked out. I'm definitely not used to having a space that I can actually decorate so this banner is the perfect addition. My crafty space colors are pink and black with a touch of gray and white.
Here are some close-ups of my banner:
(Excuse the fence, that is getting replaced this Spring)
I used the Banner punch board for my banner shapes and trimmed them with a bit of lace. I connected them with some white tulle and some buttons that matched my patterned paper. The twine is Pink Midnight from Trendy Twine and matched perfectly! I created the letters with the Alphabet Punch Board (thanks Janis!!) and adhered them with some foam tape. I finished off my banner with some pink paper roses at the bottom of each banner panel.
Be sure to head over and see Janis to check out the banner she made!
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today and taking a look at my latest creation!
I really appreciate it!!
I hope you have a great crafty day!
