Burlap, Linen, & Lace Banners...Part One

I have several banners I made for our daughter's wedding.  I will admit that, if I had time, I could get carried away making banners!  LOL!  They are fun to make and worth the effort.  The first one I made was "Mr & Mrs".  Elizabeth didn't know what she wanted to use it for, just that she wanted one.  So, of course, as her Mom, I made one!!  Ultimately, it ended up on the bride & groom's table.  After googling & checking out pinterest, I decided on this design for the banner...not totally like any one I looked at online, but my own version.  (more details below)  

The wind was blowing the table runner but had to let it go... out of my control!  Anyway, the table is an old door found on Craigslist, with a pine frame that was distressed to look like barnwood; made by TJ (the groom) & my hubby.  The letter "B" was cut from plywood after our daughter drew out the pattern.  It is distressed with black, then white paint, which didn't dry...so then it got scraped & sanded to this look. The two heart wreaths are from clearance at Valentine's day made from wood roses.  They were another find that we didn't know what we would do with them, but worked into the theme beautifully. They were 70% off at about $3.50 each.

The banner is made from cardboard banner pieces I got from Craft Warehouse, covered in linen fabric with glue, antique lace across the top with hand~sewn gray pearls on the points of the lace, the letters were large cardboard letters I had & covered in a deep gray paper, edged with a glitter pen design, and then a gray jewel was added to the bottom of each triangle. They were hung with black leather.

Here's a close up...




So that is one banner... There will be more in my next post.  Hope you are having a great week.  I am starting to get some things in my Etsy store.  It isn't a quick process, but nice to get the items listed. There are trees, spools, glitter, and sweet little containers waiting for me on my work table...  Just need some time to work on them.  It is funny how little time I have since I am working full time outside the house!  We are having lots of rain & wind here.  What is it like in your neck of the woods??

Blessings,
Cindy
