Today I'm bringing you a home decor project that I made with my April Counterfeit kit, Les Voyageurs. I have a bit of a Parisian theme going on in my guest, half bath, and I've been meaning to make a banner to cover a beat up old shelf in there for ages. So this month's kit was perfect to inspire me to finally follow through!
I threw in the navy paper, because that is a predominant color in my bathroom. I cut banner pendants, rosettes, accents and letters. I used an Eiffel Tower cut file for the A to add a little extra Parisian flair.
For my banners that need to be durable in the home, I like to use a hot glue gun to secure the rosettes. Since they're not in the scrapbook and need to be acid free, that's a good adhesive to use to ensure they're not falling apart while hanging up!
I used some giant eyelets I had to reinforce the holes to hold the hanging yarn... Not too sure about that gold yarn yet - I may change it eventually.
And here is the banner in all its glory.
I got the navy vase at Goodwill. I got the two lovely old books at a local thrift store, and the brass tower is from Paris! The glitter tower is from the Target dollar aisle, I think, a long time ago.
I have a strangely shaped 1/2 bath, so I have accented these two walls.
Here we are with my canvas of a photo I took in Paris.
Thank you for looking & be sure to hop on over to Jemma's blog next!
