Welcome banner

We've finally been able to welcome beautiful weather ~

so I made this welcome banner to make spring feel at home and stay awhile!

[click on pictures]

I used this image from The Graphics Fairy for the letters.

For the back of the welcome banner~

Bird's and Bee's

I'll also use this when I welcome family and friends over to sit outside again!
Update here:  I left out some details! 
I printed these images out on iron-on transfers (remember to reverse the images) -
then ironed the images onto burlap. 
I sewed the banners on jute twine and clipped them on with mini clothes pins.

I'm linking today to Brag Monday


  1. I love that!~ totally cool!!~ Nice job:)

  2. What a cute idea! I had been thinking of making a flag for outside, was wondering if you coated your banner with Mod Podge Outside to keep it from fading?
