Welcome Home Banner
I just love banners! I think they are so easy to change up for every season or event. I have made multiple banners in the past, and I usually keep them all tucked away, ready to be strung up when I need them.
The first banner you see above is a sentimental one for me. I made it while my husband was away for 4 long months. Gave me something to keep busy doing while he was away, and I loved decorating the house for him when he returned.
I also have the dates of when he was gone and the places that he went written on the back. Anytime he goes away I can just add that info. Then in the future we can just look back on all his travels. So sweet!
Denim and Stars Banner
This next banner I also made quite a while ago. No special occasion in mind, I just wanted something that had a little more of a rustic feel. I cut up an old pair of jeans for this one, and then hot glued some Ruffled Flowers on each flag. The flowers here are made from burlap and an old shirt that I ripped into strips.
The stars were cut out with my Cricut, and then I scored and folded them to give them some dimension.
This banner is currently hanging in my craft room, just for fun!
USA Wreath Banner
This last banner is one that I just made this year for the 4th. I tied it onto my grapevine wreath so I could hang it on the door.
I kept the embellishments very simple, just hot glued some lace trimmings, burlap, canvas, and rolled roses onto some Canvas Corp papers. The letters are ironed on. To finish it I used some shiny gold brads in a few places.
I also put together a video for this one, so go ahead and watch how it all came together!
So glad you found me! This blog is my little space where I can share bits about my life and my latest crafting projects (mostly handmade cards). My goal is to share, inspire, and to be a positive presence in the creative community.
