I don’t know about you, but I have fallen head over heels with banners! They make any occasion feel more festive…even the every day ones! But when you combine beautiful Really Reasonable Ribbon with gorgeous vintage Christmas papers and you string it up in your home….well, it’s a banner day! To be more specific, it’s a Christmas Banner Day!
I used a 3 foot length of RRR Natural Mesh Ribbon as the anchor for my individual pennants. To make it feel extra festive, I decorated the end pieces with red and white wavy vertical stripe ribbon and Emily White Crochet lace to add a touch of vintage sweetness. to my Christmas banner.
The natural mesh ribbon is a great choice for a project like this for several reasons. One, it has a great vintage look with lots of texture. Two, the open weave is easy to sew through, which is important when you are sewing through multiple layers as I did in this project. Also, it is strong enough to support the weight of the banner without sagging. I was pleasantly surprised that it only took me a couple of hours to make this sweet Christmas banner from start to finish. And now, it can be Christmas!
