Classic Banner

Inspired by Kate at Centsational Girl, I decided to come up with a simple banner for my house!  Using scraps I had around the house, old jeans, muslin and some toile, I set about to make a banner!

I cut a pattern out of cardboard and cut all the fabric out. 
I didn't finish the seams but left everything raw.
I strung it with twine and used beads in between each piece.
Then I cut stencils out using my cricut and painted away.  I love how it turned out!
 My hummingbird feeders are in the way, but you can see how nice it looks!

Now to find another simple craft to do for the 4th.  Where are my 2x4's?

Toodles,

Laura

I adore your patriotic spirit. It is red, white and bluetiful!

I hope you'll stop by for my bbq on an Anthropologie inspired white tablecloth. :)
