Ten Minute Fall Banner




My love for simple DIY projects is evident and a ten minute fall banner is the perfect project when your time to create something is limited.

I found this wonderful pre cut card stock paper in fall designs, along with colorful twine, at Michaels (on sale for 40 percent off) and immediately knew I could turn both into a quick and easy banner to use with my fall decor. I picked three coordinating prints and folded down the top edge of each one for a total of six banner pieces. I then inserted the twine, beneath the fold and glued the top edge down with craft glue, spacing each banner piece as I went along.

Ten minutes later and I had a pretty banner ready to hang on my foyer stairway. I love the patterns, in the somewhat unexpected autumn shades, especially the shades of blue. Simple, quick and oh so sweet - just in time for fall.

Happy Wednesday!
