Penant and Flower Garland

Not a back to school tradition so much, but a fun decoration we used for our celebrations! Another fun project from Sandi Henderson's book! My friend Grace and I each made one during her recent visit and I love how cheerful and happy this looks! Best of all, it was all made with things I had on hand!

I hung it up right away in our Dining Room - but then moved it to the Living Room to help celebrate the First Day of School!

Here, I moved it outside so you could see it in better lighting!

love the banner. Banners are always bring a smile to my face. There is something really happy about them.
Perhaps it's the beautiful fabrics you used.It looks great displayed on your mantel.
Thanks for stopping by my blog. Seems most folks that commented like it leaning, so I think I will have it lean.
