Last year I started to create two Easter Banners. One for my mom, who we celebrated with and one for myself. Originally I was going to make a Valentines Banner and picked up red,pink and white heart doilies at The Dollar Tree. Well when they had tulip doilies I had to get them for Easter.
My mom loves Yellow Tullips so I've made one for her and one for me. I gave it to my mom for Mother's Day instead. Even though it says "Happy Easter" it's a cute Spring project.
After that I punched in holes with a single punch. I chose to make 5 tulips per banner but you could make more. I think it works best of you use odd numbers. After I had the holes punched I threaded green ribbon for my mom's.
|This year I found some cute purple twine at Michael's. I'm using that for my banner.|
What I like about this project is that it can be modified to meet different styles, holidays, materials and more.
I want to make more banners for other holidays and occasions. Maybe I'll make one for 4th of July with vintage images, like the ones I have here.
These are some of the images I usedfrom Magic Moonlight Free Images
The Graphic Fairy Then look under the Easter Category.
From BumbleButton I got:
Some of the images,I posted, were used for my mom's banner. I'm so excited about all the images I found. I'm grateful to all the websites and blogs that are willing to share these free images. If you have a favorite site for free vintage images please share in the comments. I save my images, for most holidays, here.
