I guess you can say I am obsessed with spring right now. Today as I sit down at my desk I can look outside and see the first signs of spring. This week has been quite nice actually. I would say the weather is downright perfect. I cannot let that fool me. Next week it could be a blizzard. Ah the joys of living in Utah. We have bipolar weather. SO since it is so nice I thought I would make a cute and simple book page Easter banner for my fireplace mantle. Of course I am using book pages.
I am a big proponent of using what you have at home to create home decor, but if you don’t have some of these items that is okay! Here is a little list of what you’ll need.
Stencil-it Reusable Lettering Set- 2 inch
Sharpie Permanent Markers
I began this banner like many of my book projects by cutting or tearing some of the pages out of my trusty old book. Once removed, I straightened the pages with my paper cutter. I use this thing for everything.
I then drew the design I wanted for the bottom of the banner. I didn’t want to make the triangle banner like I have done. I measured the center of the page and made a mark. I then measured up 2 inches from that mark and made another mark. I then connected the center mark to the corners of the page.
I then used my scissors to cut that part out. I cut all the pages together so they were all the same.
I then traced my letters with my stencil and sharpie marker.
I added a flower to each end of the banner and then colored them all in.
I then gathered up all my pages and used my hole punch to make two holes at the top of the pages about 2 inches apart. The next step is to weave the twine into the holes at the top.
The last step is to hang your banner. I hung mine on my fireplace, but I had about 10 other places I wanted to hang it.
On my chalkboard wall
In my Entry
On my living room chalkboard
and on and on.
I hope you try out this book page Easter banner. It is so fun and easy.
Now I am on to my next project. Someone stop me! My husband has tried. It did not work.
Have a great day!
