As you know, I like to handmake most of the gifts that I give. I got the idea for my sister's birthday gift from Lolly Jane's Interchangeable Bunting Board. I wanted to make mine a little different- wrap the hangers around from the back instead of using the mini-clips like they did. I like the way mine turned out.
12" X 12" board- luckily I had some leftover from this project (Hmmm, maybe I should make one of those for our house!)
Scrapbook Paper, Felt Cut-Outs
I sanded down the board, painted it cream and then watered down some brown paint to give it a light brown wash.
For the lettering I don't have a fancy Silhoute or Cricut or anything so I used old fashioned tracing.
I printed "Welcome" out in a size and font I liked and traced it onto the board.
I painted it with two coats of brown paint.
For the bunting I nailed 4 nails in the back of the board and measured out ribbon to fit onto the nails.
The Christmas bunting is made out of Ric-Rac and felt cut-outs I bought from Hobby Lobby.
The Halloween bunting is made from Ribbon and Scrapbook Paper embellished with Glittery Bat stickers.
I have made a few more buntings to send to my sister, but I will let her see them before I post them on here.
I love this project because it can be displayed all year round either on a frame stand or with a sawtooth hanger!
I hope you enjoy it Camille!!
