First of all, I want to welcome you to the new and improved website! After months of research, and fine tuning, The Lucky Pear finally had a makeover! I never thought in a million years that this hobby would one day turn into a passion. I have met so many incredible people, learned an unmeasurable amount, and completely stepped out of my comfort zone. So thank you, all of you, for being here every step of the way.
Enough with all that, lets get to the project!
For those of you who have been following me for a while know I love making wreaths. Using the same grapevine I change it up every season, adding a new look to my front door. If you recall my Spring Wreath, or Christmas Wreath I incorporated the same monogram letter in each project. This year, I wanted to change it up. Do something different. So instead of the letter, I’ve decided to make a mini banner.
Trust me, it’s a lot easier than you think.
All you need is:
Start by deciding how large you want your banner to be. Based on the size of my wreath, I knew I needed my triangles to be 2.5 inches by 3.75 inches. The easiest way is to draw a triangle to your desired dimensions, and use that as your template.
Then, take your cardstock and fold in half hot dog style. With a pencil, trace your template, ensuring the base is aligned with the seem. Once you’re done, cut out the triangles using your paper cutter. I found that using my Fiskas paper cutter was an extremely helpful in this project!
Now that you have all triangles cut out, place a piece of double sided tape in the open triangle like shown. Then, place the fishing line in the seem, and apply pressure to ensure the line adheres to the tape. Repeat until the banner is complete.
Lastly, place the adhesive letter on the banner and you’re all set! Tie one end to one side of the wreath and the other end to the opposite side!
Easy peazy, right?!? Pin now, create later!
