DIY Wall Banner

Do you ever buy something even when you know you could actually make it yourself? 
DIY Colorful Wall Banner Sometimes I'm just not in the mood for crafting but I want something now?
Sometimes I'm just feeling lazy :)
Sometimes I just can't quite put the idea together in my mind, but someone else already did!
This project is kind of in the middle.  I bought some things to help me put it together, but then I actually had to put it together.
Just call it lazy crafting.  Or semi-homemade.  
DIY Colorful Wall Banner
I wanted a wall banner to hang in my newly painted bathroom.  But I didn't want to use paper because I knew the moisture would make it curl.  And I really just did not want to break out the saw and make my husband cut some shapes for me make my own.
So I headed to Hobby Lobby and bought these heavy chipboard banner shapes.  I went for the two pointed kind.
Then, amazingly, I found paper that perfectly matched the colors of my bathroom!
All I had to do was trace the banner shapes onto the paper, cut the paper to fit, then glue the paper to the banner.  I finished with a coat of Mod Podge to "seal" it against the bathroom moisture.
Finally, I hung it with some gray yarn to match the tiny bit of gray in the room.

I'm in love with it!  Hanging a banner on the wall instead of fancy art makes it feel more whimsical- perfect for a kids' bathroom.

  4. I love the entire makeover! The banner is perfect and as you said, whimsical! I vary between looking at things and telling myself I can just make it, but never wind up doing it, or just giving up and buying it. Decisions, decisions! :)

  8. I love this idea! After we finish our kitchen remodel we are heading to the kids bathroom. I think I might add a little extra craft that looks just like that! :) Thank you for sharing.
