Colorful Summer Pennant Banner

I made a spunky and colorful banner to spruce up my entry.

Most of the furnishings and paint colors in my home are pretty neutral.  So I wanted to make something bright and fun to decorate for summer.

I started with this Maya Road canvas pennant kit.  I think it's sold as a scrapbook, but it works great as a banner.   It had just enough of the little pennants to spell out summer.

I pulled a few bits and pieces of crafty fun from my stash.  I used red, aqua and yellow to go with the glittery silver chipboard letters.

For the S, I used a bottle cap from the cokes we drank to celebrate the start of summer, a cardstock paper border and a felt flower.

For the U, I used a fabric circle, a chipboard scalloped circle and some yellow ric rac.

For the first M, I used some cardstock for the back ground and a metal flower.

For the other M, I used a yellow, scalloped fabric circle with some red polka dot washi tape.

For the E, I used a aqua cardstock circle and some buttons.

For the R, I used a scrap of trim and a blue clothespin.

I used book rings to bind all of the flags together.

And ribbon to tie it onto the shelf.

It's a fun little banner with bold pops of color.

I hope you are having a fun summer!!
