A few years ago I was so much craftier than I am now… I am not sure if it’s time, or that I am spending my creative energy solely on Sweet Clover these days or what, but I have not taken a lot of time lately to be “crafty.” And I sort of miss it. Last week I got together with a girlfriend and along with our kiddos we had a “clay” craft night and it was so good for my soul. And a few weeks prior to that I revisited a project I did a while back, a DIY book page banner. (Click here to see the banners I created waaaaay back).
This time I found an adorable vintage animal book at a yard sale. I loved the colors and scale of the animals and thought it would make a great banner. My kids are a bit big for decorations like this, but my good friend (whose girls’ room we are wallpapering- did you cast your vote yesterday?) has two boys under the age of 3, and I knew I could make the banner and it would not go to waste in their home. Her older son just loves animals.
For the full tutorial of how I created this banner (rather quickly and easily) as well as step by step photos, head over to ehow where I am sharing!
