Hey Friends, it’s Becky from U Create! I am so excited to be apart of The Ribbon Retreat Blogger Challenge. I get to compete with some really talented ladies (and friends). So here’s how it works: We each got the exact same products to create something great with and then YOU vote for your favorite after all 4 of us reveal our creation. Sounds like a blast right? I am really excited to see what everyone creates! For my challenge I decided to make a Spring Banner for my fireplace mantle.

Step #1: Sew the pink glittery ribbon to the middle of the burlap ribbon.

I stitched the pink ribbon in place every twelve inches. That way I still got the loose draped looked of the pink ribbon.

Step #2: Cinch 3 spots on the banner.

I measured the banner and cinched it at 18″, 36″, and 54″ from the edge. I pinched it together with my fingers and then secured it with a piece of twine.

Step #3: Glue safety pins to the flowers.

Put a dab of hot glue on the on the back of the flower. Open the safety pin and place the back of the pin in the glue. Cut a small piece of ribbon and place it over the glue and the pin. This will secure the pin better and save your fingers from that HOT glue.

Step #4: Pin flowers to the cinched banner.

I pinned the flowers to the places I had cinched up on the banner. This makes it look super springy and soft. I LOVE THESE FLOWERS!

Step #5: Hang it on the Mantle

I tied twine to the ends of the burlap banner to create loops to hang on my mantle.

CRAFT TIP: Get clear command hooks to hang banners, stockings, etc from your mantle or shelves. They are easily removed and don’t damage the surface.

So, what do you think? I love how simple and easy this craft was, but how beautiful and springy it is too. Also, I think this banner could be a fun table runner. Place it in the middle of the dining table and you have an instant Spring Center Piece.
