Holiday Banner and Decorations

I haven't spent much time here lately as I have been frantically been making and putting up decorations, finishing up gifts, and trying to tie up the end of my term at school. Here are some photos of 2 Christmas banners I made: one for our living room and one for Finn's room. I had a whole bunch of Christmas fabric left over from some blankets I made years ago, and figured I could put it to good use. They are super easy to make... just cut out triangle shapes using pinking shears (so the fabric won't fray), and sew the triangles in between a piece of ribbon (I used 1-inch thickness). The other photos are of our xmas tree and our holiday tree.

Pin It Now!
