St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner. My friend Chrissy over at Boerman Ramblings post the most adorable wreath.
Head over there and check it out. I didn't have all the supplies on hand to replicate her adorable frame wreath so I improvised. I decided to make a larger version of the banner.
I found these super fun felt shamrocks at Joanns, There were $1.99 for a pack of 12. Which means I still have some left. If you are making this for your mantel then you might use them all up.
I have a huge spool of jute because I use it on LOTS of projects, but you can buy a smaller spool at Walmart for just a few smaller projects. I hit up the used book store for an old out of date paperback thesaurus. I had a hard time at first with this project because I had to tear pages out of a book. I decided that I would have one book that I would keep to use for all projects that I needed it for. Of course I already have 2 more in the works.
Best thing about this project...no glue! You have instant results, no waiting for the glue to dry to show off your amazing creation.
#1 Cut the bottom of the pages into which ever pattern you like. You could go pennant, scalloped or flag style like I did.
#2 Fold the top of each page about a 1/2" towards the back.
#3 Place your strand of jute inside the hold and use your stapler to secure.
Each piece should look like this once stapled.
#4 Add your embellishment to the center of each flag.
Tada! All finished and hanging on the front door. Just a little something to dress it up.
