Ten days to go before my Make Your Own Inspirational Banner workshop with Make it Blissful! I’m really excited because this is the first time I’m sharing this particular craft project and there is just a long list of creative things one can do with them!
I enjoy making these banners because you can turn a quote or keywords, an image or even just a letter to make your very own. Use it to spruce up an empty wall or a work space and let it inspire, get you going or simply be something pretty that makes you happy. 🙂
We have one in our bedroom, just above the head of our bed that simply says Only Love and I like how it sets a tone and also serves as a reminder to us in the family. It’s also a great gift idea. I’ve made several ones to give away using words I thought would resonate with whoever I made them for.
The last few days, I have been preparing for the upcoming workshop, shopping for materials and also making some banners, experimenting on colors and embellishment.
I wanted to make something that will always encourage me to create, thus the banner that says: “Today is yours to make.” It’s very simple but I can be sure I’m the only one who owns something like it!
I really like the idea of adding tassels and making small banners with a single image like this one of a striped pink heart. Adorable, don’t you think?
And the great thing about these decor pieces is, because I use textile paint on them, when they get dirty, just toss them in the washer for a quick spin.
These decorative banners are so much fun and are not difficult to make at all! Trust me, you don’t have to be a painter, a brush letter artist or calligraphist to do this, though, of course that helps, but I will teach you tricks and techniques on how to work on your lettering. So do join me and Make it Blissful on July 25th and let’s gather to create and inspire each other! I think the company and opportunity to make new friends over crafts already makes it an event you wouldn’t want to miss!
