Mini Summer Banner

I love banners, pennants and flags of all sorts.  I remember being mesmerized by them hanging at car lots when I was a kid.  I see them everywhere these days.  I made a large one for spring.  You can read about it here, but when I put it away, I realized that storage would be a problem.  I made a smaller one this time.
Pin It

It's the perfect thing for my shelf in my entryway, don't you think?  I am loving that scarlet/magenta/fuchsia color for my summer decor.  (I'm never sure exactly which color it always looks a little different depending on what I'm doing with it.) 

I'll show you how I made it, but it was really so simple I'm almost embarrassed to.
Here are the supplies I used.

I cut my shapes out of paint chips.  I laid them out they way I wanted, using a tape measure for even spacing.  Using Tacky Glue I attached my triangles and circles to some kitchen twine.

That's pretty much it.

How simple was that?

  1. That is beautiful, Danni! I love the colors that you chose. Megan

  2. I always get confused by colour names but I'm a step up from the typical guy who might just call this red (at least in our house, lol). Looks very sweet.

  3. So easy even I can do it!! Now what should I put on it?!! Hmmmm..... so many options ;-)

    BTW, congrats on being the Star student over at Trade School from Adventures of our Fami-LY!

  4. Adorable! I love paint chip projects and the size of this is so cute! I've made 2 larger pennant paint chip banners and just like you said they're hard to store. I really like the two shape combo, too :)

  5. Danni, you are getting better and better! I love the way you embrace color and the whimsical patterns you make. Those little pink circles next to the festive flags are so darling :)

  6. Cute banner :) Have a great week.

  8. Danni, How clever! I love the great fuchsia color! And how brilliant to use paint chips to make that darling banner!
