Banners.1
I’m sharing my Easter Banner plus a lot more awesome banners in this post. I love banners, buntings, garlands, especially this time of year. I don’t know why but even having a backyard barbecue makes me want to create a banner. Most banners are easy to create and can make even the simplest get together seem special. So why not, right?!

Easter banner.1
Let’s start with my Easter banner for this year. I love how it turned out and how it brought all the colors on the mantel together. I already had everything to make it but had just recently purchased the twine at Target.

Easter Banner 2
The banner kit is by Pebbles. It includes 24 banners but I am only using 6. The felt beads can be made or purchased at a craft store. The twine was purchased from the dollar spot at Target very recently. I also bought green and blue twine since it was only $1 and I knew I’d use it.

Easter Banner 3
I used rub-on letters to spell Easter on the banner. The letters are a few years old and they were a little hard to use. Do rub-on letter go bad?

Easter Banner 4
The beads were fairly easy to string. I had to use a kitchen gripper to help me pull the needle through some of them though.

Easter Banner 5.1
I made the banner alternating the beads and the banner pieces.

Easter Banner 8
Sometimes it’s just little details that make a difference. I secured the banner to the mantel using tape and then tied a bow on each end.

Easter Banner 9.1
I really love my colorful Easter mantel this year and how the banner pulls it all together.

Here are more fun banner ideas. I’m sure I’ll be making more banners in the next few months to share.

Leanne! I LOVE LOVE LOVE banners too! I don’t know why, but they make me happy. :) Also, have you ever made felted balls? I’d love to know how, I think they are adorable. I love your Easter banner! It is perfect. The colors are great and it seems it was pretty simple to put together. I’ve had old rub-ons be really hard to use as well, so I do think they get old…

Where did you find the felted balls?! I love the way they look and can never seem to find them, or if I do, they always are super expensive. I would love to learn how to make them because they are so cute! Thanks for the cute banner ideas!

I found the felted balls at Robert’s when they were still around. There’s a craft store in Kaysville that I believe still carries them. I’m going to try my hand at making them soon. I’ll let you know how it turns out and how easy it is.
