Hello there! It's Mendi here today with a Spring project inspired by the amazing Shellye McDaniel! I was completely taken with her idea to cover an inexpensive wood monogrammed letter with washi tape!
Here's a peek of Shellye's amazing wreath that my design is based on (pinned HERE). I fell in love with her idea immediately and for almost two years now I have been wanting to make one of my own. I love how easily her design translates to any season depending on the washi tape used. I chose to tie my letter to the back of the wreath using Doodle twine making it easy to switch out with the seasons.
I wanted to make some big bows to secure my banner in place, but truth be told, I'm not usually very good at making them. I was tickled to discover a very easy tutorial (shared HERE) which helped me create them with very little effort. For my smaller sized bows I used (36) 3" lengths of ribbon per bow which means you will need 3 yards of grosgrain and 3 yards of sheer ribbon to make two.
While I had my spring papers out, I created a coordinating chipboard banner using the darling papers and craft kit from the Easter Parade collection.
I kept it sweet and simple, but I can't help smiling when I see these adorable critters. To connect the banner pieces together I created a loop with the same grosgrain ribbon, gluing them together in the back. I then threaded a needle with some Doodle twine and sewed buttons onto the ribbon loops.
I hope I've inspired you to create some bright and cheerful projects for your home this Spring. :)
