Easter Banner

Easter is 25 days away, have you started decorating yet? If you need ideas I have this very easy to make Easter Banner.

The supplies I used are:
Cardboard
Gesso Paint
Glimmer Mist
Doilies
Glitter Chip Letter
Flowers
Pearl Pins
Wood Mini Spools
Seam Binding Ribbon

Start by cutting your banner shape out of the cardboard, you might want to also cut some cardstock paper for the back of the banner pieces. Glimmer mist each of them. Paint the edges using Gesso or any type of Acrylic paint. Now that you have your Gesso and paintbrush out start painting ea of the Mini Wood Spools.

Once all your paint is dry it is time to start embellishing, tie a piece of the Seam Binding Ribbon to each of the Spools. For the banner pieces glue a small Doilies to the center, add the Glitter Chip Letter, two Flowers and two Pearl Pins.


I used Hemp rope to hang my banner and added a cute egg in the center as extra decoration.


Hope you enjoyed this mini tutorial.

Have a Wonderful Day
