Spring is here!

Pin It

We're excited about the days getting longer, 
the yard showing some signs of life again,
and even some warmer days here and there...

So that's a good reason to celebrate spring with this banner.

I really like buntings or banners:
They're so easy to make, so it's a quick and fun way to add some seasonal decoration.

I just printed some sheet music on plain cardstock.
Then I cut them into banner shapes, first by cutting a 8.5 by 11 sheet of cardstock into 6 rectangles, and then cutting out a triangle from the bottom.

I added some scalloped circles, the word "SPRING" and some tiny flowers.
(I used my Silhouette Cameo, but you could also just print your letters, 
or cut some basic spring-y shapes, like flowers...)

I used tiny wooden clothes pins to attach them to some twine, and that's it...

(By the way: I thought it's pretty hard to take a good picture of a mirror, this one is hanging in our stair case, and I had a hard time keeping the reflection of unwanted elements, like light switches and steps out of the picture, therefore the funny angles...)
