Happy Monday! I’ve been decluttering and pairing down on decor so I decided to capitalize on my Valentine’s Day banner and make it reversible for spring! I made a similar one for Halloween/Christmas so of course I need one for spring, right? And did I mention it’s super easy? I made it out of scraps I had from Valentine’s decor, which is another one of my 2017 goals: using what I already have.
- 3 sheets of scrapbook paper
- String (I used baker’s twine)
- Letters (I got mine at the Target Dollar Spot, but there are white and gold letters on Amazon)
- Hot glue (I love this glue gun)
I used my Friskar’s cutter to cut some rectangles. Regular scissors would also work, but I like making fast and precise cuts.
Then I folded them in half.
And put them over some baker’s twine.
And then hot glued the bottom edges.
Next I cut squares of another pattern.
And then the final step is to hot glue the letters.
I love this Elmer’s high temp glue gun. Less strings and more time to manipulate before it dries.
And then you repeat on the other side.
Such an easy craft, and it doesn’t take up much room to store so that’s a big win!
And it’s a cute way to dress up a boxwood. Did you know you can get preserved boxwood wreaths on Amazon?
I like to choose a keyword to reflect on each season, so naturally HOPE came to mind for spring because of Easter and the hope we have in Jesus Christ because of His resurrection. It’s a good talking point for the kids as well.
I added it to my boxwood wreath on the chalkboard in my living room.
Here is a pin to save for later!
