Happy Spring!

Yippie! It’s the first day of Spring! It’s still freezing outside – but as the birds outside my window and the bulbs in my mother’s garden are concerned, Spring has arrived – and I couldn’t be happier. Spring is my favorite month (mostly because it brings all things that I love – daisies, bicycle riding weather, 3/4 sleeve cardigans and my birthday).

I thought I’d welcome Spring into our home with a little DIY burlap & felt bunting. I followed pretty much the same steps used to make the Love Bunting for our wedding, except instead of stenciling, I attached letters cut from a fun & colorful felt pattern.

BuntingLabledTo make my bunting, I used burlap, felt, orange & white bakers twine, mod podge glue, and my fabric cutting board & rolling cutter.

SpringBuntingSuppliesI measured and cut each triangle out of burlap, and gave each piece a coating of Mod Podge to keep the edges from fraying.
