I just can't leave well enough alone.
The backs of the ladder back chairs in the dining room looked like
they needed something.
So.....they got SOMETHING!!!
I made some monogrammed banners to hang on each chair.
Each person has their initial of their first name on their chair.
This is Jeff's
and finally...a "G" for a guest that might happen to eat with us.
I started with a cardboard box that I received some crafting supplies in from Cricut.com....woop woop!!!!
Love my Cricut....just sayin'
Ok, back to the deets of this project. As I was saying, I started with a cardboard box.
I ripped it open and cut 4 triangles for the banners.
I distressed the triangles by ripping some of the smooth paper off to reveal the corrugated paper underneath.
I then used white gesso and scrumbled some on hap-hazardly. Let it dry and meanwhile I used my Expression and the Old West cartridge and cut out the letters.
Black shadow and patterened DSP was cut at 4-1/4"
Used some dimensionals and placed them on the center of the triangles.
I torn a piece of a patterned velum and adhered it with clear glue. Glued down a white button and also a small white clothes pin.
Then using a border punch and white card stock I made the scallop edges.
Then using a hot glue gun I adhered some pearl strings around the edges and left long tails at the bottom.
Then I ripped some fabric strips and used some white and black seam binding and tied it around the tails of the pearls to make a faux tassel.
Added some more torn fabric to the top corners for hanging.
Tied them to the chairs and stepped back and clapped for joy.
I absolutely love them!!!!
Until later, sit a spellers.......Gotta
