DIY Wooden Banners
My sisters came up with a great craft day last summer around the 4th of July when we came up to visit. They had already been working on them and wanted to invite me into the fun craft zone. While scrounging around in my dads wood pile one afternoon, my sister decided these random boards needed decorating and a place to call home. After finding many different shapes, sizes and types of wood, we brushed paint lightly on top of them and created our own touch to each piece for our home.
How to DIY:
You can use any scrap wood you find or go to home depot or a local lumber store and ask for some scraps they have laying around.
Once you have the boards you like, lightly brush craft paint across the board to create a weathered look to the wood.
Once dried, place stencils along the board aligning them how you prefer and tape slightly to hold the stencils in place.
Set aside and let dry!
Use a "twisty screw" as I prefer to call them, but better known as an eye-hook to hang with ribbon or to hold a nail.
Here are a few of our creations....
These are cheap and easy to make and can be used all throughout your house. You could purchase these at the store for $25-40 OR Do-It-Yourself for less than $5.
