Sequined Christmas Banner

       

Hi there!
Today I am thrilled to be posting a project for Pretty Pink Posh!
Paulina contacted me a while ago to ask if I would participate in a mini blog hop to announce the opening of her sweet little shop carrying all sorts of fabulous embellishments, and I was honored.


You would not believe the goodies inside package she sent me! I squealed in delight when I opened it:) But lets get to the project I created...
Here are the supplies I chose to start with:


I knew I wanted to create a Christmas Banner to hang on my china cabinet in my dining room. I have a banner for all other occasions but nothing for the Christmas holiday. 


I began by gluing the Raspberry Sequins into letter shapes on the canvas banner pieces to spell out "Be Merry." 


Then I created mini sequin christmas trees on two burlap banner pieces using the Woodlands sequin mix, and the Metallic Bronze sequins for the trunk, and finished them off with a few red sequins from the Classic Christmas mix as decorations. 


Then I created a snowflake for the middle separating banner piece with a pearl pen and added the Silver Confetti to highlight.

I dangled a large Silver Bell from each of the letter banners, and strung them all together with some hemp cord. 


I'm so pleased with this banner and it was easy and simple to make! All those gorgeous sequins glitter so nicely in the right lighting. (It's been a cold, dreary, wintery week here and we have nearly 2 feet of snow and single digit temps so lighting in my dining room is not ideal...)

Now for the Blog Hop details:


There will be a Prize Pack from Pretty Pink Posh for TWO lucky winners drawn from all the comments before December 3rd. Paulina will announce the two winners on Thursday December 5th. 
Plus, as a special you can get free shipping with your order of at least $35 until December 5! Use the special code below!


Thanks for stopping by, and good luck!
XOXO
