Spring Banner DIY

Spring is on it's way and it is busier than ever around this house. My daughter is moving to Galveston for a year to further her education.  We are busy getting her stuff together and lots of new projects are in the works for her new apartment.  Today I have a quick and I mean super fast and cheap  almost free project.  For Valentine's day I did this banner.  

For St. Patrick's Day I made this banner.  I am sure you know where this is going. lol

Go to your local hardware or paint store and gather up some free paint swatches in pretty colors.

I found 3 cookie cutters for my banner but you could freehand any shape that you like. I just traced them on my swatches, cut them out and laced them with twine. I attach the twine to two straight pins and just stick them into my wreath.

And now I have a banner with cute yellow ducks, pretty flowers and eggs!

This project only takes 30 minutes or less and cost me nothing. How sweet is that!!

Enjoy your week!
