St. Patrick’s Day Banner
The top o’the morning to ye, my friends! Today I have a super fun St. Patrick’s Day banner to share with you made with Really Reasonable Ribbon and the St. Patrick’s Day Creativity Kit from Polly’s Paper Etsy. I had to take down my beautiful Valentine banner…and my mantle looked so barren, that I decided to dress it up with the wearin’ o the green!
Of course, my master plan was to have my mantle all beautifully decorated…but on the very day that I completed this banner, the drywall crew showed up to begin the repairs on our home from the water damage we incurred from broken pipe. So my living room is hermetically sealed right now, and I have no access to my mantle. So I had to improvise. Sigh…..
This is a massive banner, measuring more than 4 feet in length. All the papers and images come from the kit, and I just added a few paper rosettes, buttons and fabulous ribbons and flowers. Let’s take a closer look, shall we?
This is the first panel on the banner. I stitched the pre-cut papers onto this gorgeous 1.5″ Cream Mesh Ribbon. This is the most gorgeous stuff! It has a slight sheen to it, and is soooo soft and pretty. It was the perfect match for the lively Celery Green Plaid Ribbon I used to tie bows on either end of the banner. I topped the bow with a pretty Off White Chrysanthemum and then added white cosmos and green sweetheart blossoms from the green and white variety pack. Aren’t they perfect for St. Pat’s Day?
The banner is finished off with another bodacious bow tied with my Zutter Bow-it-All Tool and topped with another off white chrysanthemum. I wish you could see this banner in person…it’s so festive and fun. The perfect pick me up for the end of winter. It will look great on my mantle…once I can hang it there.
So, what do you do for St. Patrick’s Day? We generally go out for fish and chips…and of course we wear green, so we don’t get pinched! And, I always make a loaf of Irish Soda Bread which is almost as yummy as this banner!
Thanks for stopping by!
