Hello, Friends! I hope you are having a wonderful Christmas and holiday week! These special times with friends and family go by so quickly….but thankfully, the memories last forever! Some of you may have already started taking your holiday decorations down, packing them away until next year. I’m always a little blue when all those pretty baubles are gone. The house looks naked somehow without them. Well, never fear! I have a winter banner that will have you feeling warm and cozy in no time!
I combined Natural Mesh Ribbon and 1/4″ Light Blue Chevron Striped Twill Ribbon to make this banner feel fun and festive. The soft blues and browns in Authentique’s “Cozy” paper collection match it like they were made for it, and are perfect for projects like this winter banner.
I used white burlap panels and some frayed Ivory Burlap String to add fun texture to my winter bird on the first panel of my banner. If you dab a little glossy accents on your fingertips and then twist the ends of the burlap string, you can easily create this look.
I just love the way the texture in these ribbons adds to the cozy feeling on this winter banner. And, see that teeny, tiny bow tied onto the hanger? I used the 1/2″ bow maker setting on my Zutter Bow-it-All to tie it. I tell you, people, I love that tool!
I used a mitten punch to create my cutie pie mittens, and then strung them together with embroidery thread. Remember mittens that were strung together like this, so you wouldn’t lose one?
Making this sweet winter banner had me feeling all “Cozy” inside…and I hope you feel that way , too! I think this would be so cute hanging in the kitchen…or in a baby boy’s room…or anywhere that you want to add a bit of winter cheer!
Thanks for stopping by!
Great banner ❤️… It is perfect to leave up all winter. My favorite part is “Baby it’s warm inside…
OH, this is so totally awesome! TFS, pinning.
What a sweet winter banner. Almost makes these frigid temperatures bearable. 🙂 Wishing you and your family a very Happy New Year!
You are a real artist. I took a look at some of you work and WOW! The soft blue and the white in the banners is strangely soothing even in the throws of winter. You buttons, bows, bird, hearts and mittens are absolutely lovely. Blessings Carole
This is such a lovely winter piece and would be perfect in so many places. It is a bright spot in my day today. Well done girl!
