DIY Easter Banner
Happy Weekend! I am finally getting some Easter decorations up around our home and wanted to share with you guys. My kids still get really excited when I put up any kind of holiday decorations, so I wanted to add a few Easter touches to our home. Not finding a whole lot of décor that I liked in the stores, I decided to make my own. I love how this little bunny banner turned out...sweet and simple.
To create this, I only had to buy the canvas banner kit and the stencil, everything else I already had on hand. I found the banner kit at Michael's and the cute bunny stencil here. I bought it for $0.99 even though I don't have a silhouette machine. I figured that I could still print it and then trace it and cut my own stencil. So that's what I did and it worked well :) I traced the bunny to the size I wanted on cardstock and then cut it out. I simply placed it on the canvas banner piece and started painting. Really easy!
I usually hang all my banners from my mantel, but really liked this one against the white cabinets, so I thought I would try a new spot.
And totally switching gears...I am extremely excited that we finally bought new tile for our backsplash!! Now, let's see how long it takes to get it installed...
