I decided to whip up a Fall Banner for my faux fireplace mantel.
DIY FALL BANNER
I added jute twine from the dollar store to attach the pages onto. I used four pages out of an old book that had been damaged.
I stenciled my pages to spell out the word Fall. But you could easily use alphabet stickers too. I just happened to have stencils and paint.
I decided I wanted mine to have a scroll effect so I rolled the tops and bottoms just a little to give it that effect. I used a tiny bit of hot glue on each end top and bottom of each book page after stenciling.
I used some of my trusty ink pad in walnut to rub the pages to give them an aged appearance. I just rubbed along the top and bottom scrolling. And a little on the sides. This gave them more dimension too.
I hot glued along the top of each page and carefully spaced out my pages to form the banner.
This is the fun part, adding the decorative details. I used old buttons I had from a collection. Then folded some ribbon in two and hot glued them on each end. I may add some old lace tied in between each page yet.
You can get real imaginative here and add what you want.
Hope you like this and it inspired you to use what you have for seasonal decor.
