My Top Ten Fav Picks From MM#43

This is a banner I made last fall. It was really simple to make. I used acrylic craft paint on cut out triangles of drop cloth material. Once the paint was dry, I folded the triangles over twine and hot glued the edges closed.

This is the backside of the banner. I thought I could spruce this side up for a reversible banner.
I just needed to cover up the orange on the back.
But first, I decided to alter the front......I still had a lot of these chalk board stickers stashed away.
I took the pennants off and spaced them with vintage thread spools and cut to fit chalk board stickers, which I can remove if I want to.
Here is the new reverse side.

All I did was hot glue strips of burlap to cover the orange paint.
Now I can use this banner all year round!

And now for the top ten! If your post was featured this week, feel free too grab a featured button from my side bar.
