{Craft} Easter Banner

I recently went on a mission to find a good kid craft book so I have been borrowing loads from our local library (which fortunately has a huge choice!).

One I am really enjoying reading is Hand in Hand by Jennie Doh. Every project is made by a different blogger and there is a little interview of the person behind the project as well as detailed instructions to complete the craft.
You will be sure to find something age appropriate for your children within the 20 projects offered. We already made a couple of the easier crafts with my daughter and it has been a lot of fun spending time together this way.

When I first saw this banner I knew straight away this was going to make a perfect Easter banner. I am trying a sort of patchwork look for Easter with different colors and textures and I figured the banner was a great fit with my theme.

Mine is not quite finished (for a start it does not spell Easter yet !) but I wanted to share my work in progress with you. I am quite pleased with it and it was a great project for the week end. I have included some drawings and little notes my daughter wrote for me to make it more personal.

I started by making six different shapes flags. I followed the advice from the book and hand drew the shapes to give a more homemade feel. I cut my shapes out of cardstock to have a "base" on which I could start working.
I then gathered a huge pile of papers, ribbons, drawings, stickers... and started cutting and gluing onto the base flags until they were completely covered.

  1. Love the "quilted" effect of this sample banner. Can't wait to see the one you're making!
