I love to celebrate the seasons, and bring a little life in to my environment every couple months. especially here when sometimes the weather doesn't lend itself to reinforcing that it's fall or winter. So this weekend I made a 'November' banner.
I figured that monograms are so popular, and they make days of the week underwear, so why shouldn't I have months of the year banners...?
For this banner I used some yarn, striped fabric, and glitter paper. Oh, and some teeny tiny little brads.
After finishing these tassels I fell in love with them. I've done smaller tassels (even a tassel necklace), but haven't ever gone this big... I think it just may be my new thing! I can here it now...'Oh Monika, yeah, she goes big.'
But honestly I was really pleased with these, I also stripped the fabric so I could just add a simple tie on the ends of the banner.
I even made a nice little tassel decoration for the lamp at my table.
There she is in full effect. You know I personally like it enough to make one for every month; and I probably will, use sisters love banners and garland. Don't believe me...?
...PROOF! Now you should go investigate our various seasonal creations; and then make a ton of your own garlands and banners!!
