America Banner

About two years ago I bought a banner from TJ MAXX for Valentine's day and i fell in love with it SO much that i wanted to make one for each of the holidays of the year.

Two years later... I made a "God Bless America" Banner. The banner kind of symbolizes summer to me. But by September i want to make a FALL one... that will be replaced for HALLOWEEN... then back to FALL (for Thanksgiving)... then CHRISTMAS... Then WINTER... THEN Valentine's... THEN St. Pattys... THEN EASTER... then back to SUMMER (AKA God Bless America). Pretty fun, eh?

For the banner I went to Joanns AND Michaels looking for solid star shapes, but they didn't have any. So then i saw these and at 2.99 each (for 3) i decided they were perfect (and already painted! yay!) So i brought them home, moved the bells, chained them all up together, and added the words! Done! Seriously, easiest project ever!

Then letters didn't turn about as well as i would like because the texture of the wood made the paint bleed and, well, i went too fast. but i like it more and more and i am happy to have it hanging on the wall!
