We are on the second day of the 12 days of Christmas!!! I hope you are all having a great Tuesday ( I literally just had to check and make sure it was tues.) 😦 That’s what school and life will do to ya!!
For today I thought I would post a décor item. I made a “Merry Christmas” banner, hung it above my bed, and I love it!! I used the following items: colored paper, twine, mini clothespins, cardstock, and regular paper. For tools I used scissors, ruler, hot glue gun, and extra hot glue.
I began by flipping my decorative paper over and measured so I would get even squares. They were 3 inches by 3 1/2 inches. I did this until I had 14 squares. Next I cut them out and set them aside.
Now we get on to the time consuming part:) I took my kindle and typed in on google “letter m stencil”. I repeated that for every letter. The light from the kindle shone thru the regular paper so I was able to see the outline. I traced every letter then cut them out. Afterward I traced them on cardstock and cut them out again. I did this until I was thru with merry and with Christmas. Next I used hot glue and attached the letters to the squares of paper. So when I finished with all 14 letters I got the twine and then started gluing. I glued every corner together. Every couple of letters I would put a clothespin.
After I strung all of the letters I hung it on my bed. I love that it adds an instant Christmas spirit to your room!!! I hope you try it out and if so let me know if you like it!! Anything y’all( I still use my Texas accent!) want to see in this series comment and let me know!! 🙂
