sweet dreams banner

i’ve been wanting a banner above my bed for quite a while now.  banners are really in right now, fun, and simple to make.  i also don’t have a headboard above my bed so it would fill the space nicely.

one reason it took over a year to get around to it, was i was unsure what i wanted the banner to say.  i suppose i could have left it blank, but no.  so anyways, i finally got around to it!


i picked out neutral tans and pale yellows from my stash, and focused on keeping that color palate throughout.  it also works with the canvases from the previous post.

i played around with the scraps from the papers as well as some washi tape and tissue paper.IMG_6731

when i finally had backgrounds i liked, i added chipboard letters


and then embellished.


i used jute twine to hang the banner.  i think it came out so cute!
