Spring banner

Hi! It may be mid-April but the signs of spring are just arriving here. Today I saw lots of robins flying about  enjoying the sunshine which has been long overdue! We still have way too much of the yucky white stuff but it's slowly disappearing!!Yay!!  I have a place in my mudroom for a seasonal banner - and I only just got around to taking down the winter banner and replacing it with a new spring banner I made .

I've been searching the web for inspiration and I found a pretty burlap banner on Pinterest. Instead of stenciling letters , I cut mine out with my Silhouette machine ( it's my go-to tool these days!!!), as well as the grass and flowers were from cutfiles I bought at the Silhouette online store . I added heat'n bond to the back of each piece of fabric before cutting out and then just used my iron to bond them to the burlap tags. The tags were cut freehand - I started with a much larger tag and just kept trimming them to get the size I wanted! So easy!! I had this super cute butterfly that I glued on , a few buttons for the flower centers and twine & mini clothespins and this banner is complete! This banner was finished in under an hour!!!! 
Now maybe if I start planning my summer banner I made actually get it finished before summer is over!!!!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today.... have a great rest of your Sunday!!
