My first banner...

Hello friends! :) So I made my first ever banner...and it doesn't involve paper...*LOL*. Found these cute little plastic squares with a floral design [I still have no idea what they are for actually...haha...just happy that I didn't have to cut any paper!] at the art store. Added a handmade felt bloom, some dangly clear beads at the bottom and a silver bow at the top. Love that they are strung on some pretty aqua beads. :)

P/s: I made a ton of stuff including the bridal bouquet, groom's boutonnierre, pom poms....will share pics from the event (this Sunday) soon. Wish me luck...I only have 2 hours to decorate the place! :) Happy weekend friends! :)

Love love love love love love this!!!! I loveeeeeee those flowers and the plastic canvasses ... and PS... those are for needlepoint (similar to cross stitch but with yarn and only one stitch instead of two)... I used to do it when I was younger and my MIL still does! :):):):):):):):):):):)

beautiful banner girl :)

those are plastic canvas squares used to make coasters and such. you just use yarn or floss for stitching on them. i used to use yarn and do needlepoint on them :)

so pretty. those squares remind me of something used for needle work of some kind. very unique pattern on them. love what you did... I'm sure your decorating turned out fabulous.

Lea said...

Those look like plastic canvas pieces. You can find it very inexpensively over here... but not you've got me thinking... using plastic canvas in some creations, I may need to pick some up. Oh and the banner is truly unique and brilliant, the things you come up with amaze me!

Audrey Pettit said...

Oooh, what a clever and unique banner, not to mention beautiful! Those little canvas pieces are perfect for this. LOVE the rolled flowers! And can't wait to see some photos from the big event!
