First, I painted each mini pallet and the chipboard letters with Gesso. The mini pallets were painted with aqua blue and turquoise paint. The letters were painted a bright orange and glued to the pallets.
Once the glue was dried, each pallet was strung onto orange seam binding and then tied random blue and orange ribbons on the seam binding on either side and in between each pallet.
I hung the banner on a mantel piece that is on the Art House porch. It came out of my grandparent's house and is around 100 years old. When the house was remodeled years ago, this mantel was removed and was stored in their barn. A couple of years ago, my cousin who now owns the house gave it to me.
My plan was to create a headboard with the mantel, but it needs some work. So for now, I just knocked off the paint that had peeled off of it and put it on the porch. I rather like it there. 😉
That's all from me for now. I'll be back soon with more creations.
Hugs and Happy Craftin'!!
