The first thing I did was mod podge my scrapbook paper to my surface. As you can see my paper wasn’t quite wide enough to fit my surface. This is wear the jute rope comes in.
Next I painted my cut-out with the color Bohemian Blue from the DIY Paint Co.
After my paint was dry, I took my Posca paint pen and added some detailing. You can use any paint pen for this but here is the link for the ones I prefer. https://amzn.to/3je1kOI
Next, I glued my cut out out on to my surface and added two pieces of jute rope to each side to fill the gaps where the scrapbook paper didn’t cover.
To finish of the project I made a simple crisscross bow with ribbon and raffia. If you prefer to hang your sign like I did, simply glue a piece of twine to the back. This turned out cuter than I had imagined it would!
The banner I found at Hobby Lobby came with 12 pennants on it so I cut 5 of them off to make a shorter banner. You will want to lay down something under the pennants before you begin painting. I then took my spouncer and started making polka dots on the pennants. I used two different sizes of spouncers for this.
Once the paint was dry, I then glued the letters on the three center pennants leaving two on each side of HOP.
To hang the banner you simply tie a loop on each end of the jute twine.
To start the garland I tied a double knot in one end of my jute twine leaving a small loop on the end to use for hanging.
I found the eggs and the wood beads at Hobby Lobby. You don’t have to use these specific items but you will want to make sure the eggs you use have a string attached to them so they can hang from the garland. I did three wood beads and then one of the eggs for my pattern but you could certainly change it up for a different look.
Once I had all of my eggs and beads strung, I then tied a loop on this end just as I did on the other end of the garland. This turned out adorable! You could also add some tassels to each end of the garland if desired!
