Spring Burlap Banner

Wow!  It's been a busy couple of weeks!  Work has been all consuming and there has been little time for crafty things.  

Two weeks ago I was fortunate enough to be able to attend a convention in San Diego.  This was a four day event for Activity Directors (ASB folks) and administrators.  That convention is amazing!  I always walk away with new information AND it's a lot of fun!  Last week I was on an accreditation team that visited Oxnard High School.  Every high school goes through WASC accreditation every 3 to 6 years.  I was thrilled to be housed at a hotel on the beach and also to work with a team of great people - administrators and teachers from other schools.  

Needless to say, coming back to work last Thursday was exhausting!  So, after I got a few chores done, I was able to work on a banner that I've been wanting to do since the beginning of March.  Today was the day!!  

I got the idea for this banner from a blog called "Twist Me Pretty" (www.twistmepretty.com) and I'm really liking having some decorations in my office, so I thought this one would look nice on my windows.

This banner would work well anywhere!

This banner is made from burlap, different fabrics for the triangles, and ribbon.  It took a couple of hours to make, but it wasn't too terribly difficult.  It's a bit different from the one on the previously mentioned blog, which was  modeled after a Pottery Barn banner.  All the directions will be on the crafty directions page.

Happy Spring!

Same banner over the fireplace.  It's spring, so hopefully no fires for awhile!



Update:  Love the banner in my office!
