Spring is finally here right? We maybe technically but for sure not in spirit. My kids had TWO FULL snow days this week! I don't know about you but I am DONE with winter. After Christmas, I am just not a fan of winter but Spring on the other hand...I just can't wait to play in my garden, discover new flowers in bloom and just soak up the sunshine! Looks like I might have just a little bit of a wait on that wish list but in the meantime, I also enjoy getting ready for Easter, and all the wonderful blessings that entails. Yesterday I was in the mood to make something light and springy and I wanted to be able to share it with YOU so here we are! Want to make a happy EASY Easter banner?
I was able to make mine with what I had around the studio but even if you have to buy a couple of things, they will be cheap things!
Here is what you will need to make the banner shown above:
**fabric (I chose to use some of my vintage sheet stash and a solid color cotton for the letters. You can do ANY thing! Burlap and patterned cotton, solid on solid, whatever floats your boat! You don't need much more than a couple of fat quarters.)
**Heat and Bond Ultra Hold (see photo below). I used the NON_SEWING variety but if you want to sew, you can use the sewing kind. Use a coupon when you buy it at Joann's.
**cardstock of any sort for printing your stencils.
**medium weight interfacing (there's a photo of the one I used below) buy about a half yard or so.
**ribbon or bias tape (enough to hang where you will want your banner to be. 6-9ft)
**clothes pins if you are doing an all NO-SEW banner! :)
Ok, first thing is go HERE and download the free file for the letter stencil and banner template. Print that out on cardstock and cut them all out !
Have fun making one! :)
