Fall Banner

This Saturday is the first official day of fall.  Welcome Fall!  Cooler weather, falling leaves, football season, school in session, shorter days, and the holidays approaching – all things that I love about fall.   Second to Spring, it’s my favorite season.    There’s a lot of fun decorating you can do for this season, the colors are warm and inviting and a little bit of decorating can make nesting season fun.    Here’s a great idea by Ashley at Cherished Bliss, it’s a banner that can be hung on your mantel above your fireplace, from a window, a doorway, or just about anywhere!

Ashley has used the PSA Essentials Archive Peel & Stick collection to spell “Fall.”    She’s stamped with her PSA Stamper using black ink on canvas.   Turned out great!  Do you want to make this? Here’s a quick tutorial.   You will need:

·         Scrap piece of canvas material
·         Baker's twine
·         Cheesecloth
·         Yarn
·         PSA Essentials Archive Peel & Stick stamps

And the following tools:

·         Hot glue gun
·         Scissors
·         Orange fabric dye (optional)
·         PSA Stamper with black ink

Cut out the canvas pennants and stamp the letters "FALL".   Then glue baker's twine on the corners of each pennant.   

Ashley took a dyed cheesecloth and cut a strip a little shorter than the banner so it would drape.  Then cut two pieces of yarn and tie it all together on the ends. 

A quick and relatively easy project, this just may be the thing you need to welcome fall in your household!
