I hope you guys enjoy seeing my new banner as much as I enjoyed making it! I find making banners so relaxing....cutting out all the elements for my banner then playing with them until they look just right.
The inspiration for this banner came from Kerryanne's January Handmade Club kit. Here's a link to her blog where you can join the fun each month with a new kit.....https://www.shabbyartboutique.com/2020/01/a-delightful-french-lavender-banner-for-spring.html
The star of my banner is a very French looking white cow
I hung my French Farmhouse banner over the buffet in the formal dining room. I created a vignette under the banner using beautiful lavender flowers and hung a metal sign over the banner that says......Flower Bar.
I often use Kerryanne's kit as the inspiration for a banner, then I customize it to fit my Farmhouse style of decorating. I love cows and I frequently search Pinterest to find just the right images to add to my banners.
Now, for some close up photo's of my banner ......
I added black and white buffalo check pennants to the pieces that were already in my kit. Here's a link to my Pinterest board where you can find the free Buffalo check banner printable (as well as many others that I've used) https://www.pinterest.com/penny2005/print-it/banners/
I print my banners on an inexpensive printer that I purchased at Walmart about 3 years ago. I use card stock paper to print my pieces on.
To put my banner together, I simply use a hole punch, pull my ribbon thru each hole and tie them together. I normally use ribbon or thin strips of fabric to tie them together but this time I used tulle that I found at Hobby Lobby.
You have seen me use this chicken in my vignettes many times......
She fits right in with the cows....lol!
She came home with me from a yard sale several years ago, and I bring her out to be in my vignettes frequently.
When it gets closer to Easter, I can easily and quickly just add to this vignette.
Now I need to make a centerpiece for the dining table, so I'll be back soon to share.
I always enjoy your visits so much, please come back again soon!
