GLORY Banner

Leslie and I each made a "Glory" banner.
Just in time for the 4th!
Of course we used burlap!
Leslie had some paper that looked like ticking and I used it to cut the letters out with the CriCut.
I LOVE how the Posies on the ends turned out.
I think that I want to wrinkle mine up a little more!
We added some glitter to each penant.
Don't look to close at my lines...I had shakies at the time! :)
Our thought process on this banner is to make it "Generic".
The "GLORY" letters are actually just hanging from the clothes pin.
That way we can use the burlap penant all year long and change the topper out seasonally!
Look at our top part...we used brown paper sacks as a "bias tape" to help hot glue the jute onto!!
Leslie and I have a lot up our sleeves!  I should have more pictures soon!  Let's just say I spray painted a lot today!! :)
