Paper Flower Garland Banner

DIY Paper Flower Banner Garland

I am not a big shopper. I used to be, but not anymore. The idea of browsing just doesn't entice me the way it used to, so if I end up in a store, it's because I need something. And let's face it, unless it's the grocery store, I rarely need. However, my kids seem to need things all the time. So last week, I was at the craft store, passed by the dollar bins and knew I had a banner in my future.
These sweet green paper flowers and tags just screamed spring and summer to me, so I picked them up ~ using my 40% off coupons of course ~ took them home and got busy.

Paper Flowers And Gift Tags

It's been a pretty rainy and dark season here so far, so they brighten up my kitchen and since they're paper, I can't possibly kill them.

There's not much to share in the way of process here. I literally hot glued the flowers to a piece of twine, tied on a few of the tags for interest and bam...

Quick And Easy DIY Paper Flower Banner

...instand paper flower banner...or paper flower garland. I never know which word people prefer. 

Cottage Kitchen Banner

I just know that the flowers add a bit of fresh spring and summer color to my kitchen and my pig really seems to like them. 

And for less than two bucks, so do I.

How about you? Are you a paper flower banner fan? 

Do tell...

  7. I have always loved banners of any kind. I used to make a ton of them but haven't made any in a long time. Maybe when things get settled down here a little I will have time to 'play' again. Love the one you just made and love the others ones, too. xo Diana

    1. I grabbed them at Michael's, Lorri. Someone said they look like succulents. They might be right! ;)

  10. I've never made a banner and probably don't have one in my future, but yours is adorable! Like you, I used to be a shopper but don't enjoy it as much as I used to. Especially for clothes...wonder why that is? ;)

    1. Oh, clothes shopping is my nemesis. Although, recently I have discovered Dress Barn and I actually enjoy shopping there. I should share some finds.

  12. This is really cute. The only banner I've made was my Scotty Dog banner at Christmas. I used plaid paper and my cookie cutter and made the dogs double sided with different plaids, and twine.

    I adore it!

  15. Well, we all know you are the "Queen of Banners," so it should be no surprise that when those paper flowers and tags caught your eye, you were immediately thinking "BANNER!" It's really cute, Kim. They kind of look a bit like succulents to me, but I've had succulents on the brain lately.

    Hope you are having a great summer!

    1. That's funny, Carol, they probably are succulents! The package says flowers, so I went with it, but succulents are all the rage. Your idea makes more sense! :)
