Harvest Banner & A GIVEAWAY

What do you do with old books that are falling apart?
You make banners, of course!
I used a super old dictionary. 
I love it when the pages turn that pretty carmel color.
I also had some very old woven seam binding.
Whenever I come across old seam binding or rick rack,
I snatch it up!
I used a stencil and spray paint for this project,
but you could also print the letters out on your computer,
then put them behind the pages and trace them.
(put them up against a well-lit window to help you see the lines).
Then paint by hand inside the lines. 
That method is much less expensive and has more font options,
but does take a lot longer.
These pages are very old and brittle,
so I added adhesive reinforcements to the back
so the seam binding wouldn't tear the page.
I used a hole punch to make the hole.
I tied a knot behind each page to keep the pages spaced correctly.
Perfect for a fall party or above a mantle!
Aren't the black-eyed Susans lovely?
I do not recall them ever coming up by that antique wagon before,
so I have no idea where they came from!
I guess the flower fairy visited my house
and picked the perfect place to plant them!

  1. Hi Angie,
    That is a wonderful idea for a banner! I love it! It looks sweet hung there on the old wagon and the black-eyed Susans are very lovely there. The flower fairy knew just where to plant them, I think!
    Hugs, Cindy
