How do you like to decorate for Easter? Bright, spring colors? A neutral palate? Do you bust out the bunnies, eggs and baby chicks, or go with more of a natural vibe of flowers and greenery? All these options are great for decorating for spring or Easter!
Crew Member, Steph Ackerman shares with us how, using Canvas Corp plain pennants and some Tattered Angels paints, she created this DIY Easter Banner to decorate her home with!
“It’s almost Easter and every year, I like to create something new. Canvas banners are not only lightweight; they are extremely durable. You can add a variety of colors of paints. You can stamp on them. You can add embellishments. You can even punch them. The possibilities are endless. As my son has gotten old, he is no longer interested in coloring Easter Eggs, which was something we did every Easter for years. Not wanting to skip this Easter tradition, I chose to remember the fun we had by stamping and punching my own Easter Eggs from Canvas Corp. cardstock. Then I used an assortment of Tattered Angels paints to color the eggs. So much fun!” – Steph explains her inspiration.

Spritz pennants with assorted colors of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. I used my finger to randomly add Blue Topaz Glimmer Glam around the edges of the pennants.
Use a script stamp with black ink and randomly stamp on each pennant.
Stamp Easter Eggs on cardstock and punch them out. Die-cut EASTER from cardstock. Die-cut circles from Burlap.
Paint the Easter Eggs with Plain Jane, Glimmer Glam, Glimmer Glaze and High Impact Paints.
Punch a hole in each pennant and use Sisal Rope to tie them together.
Die-cut a leafy vine for each pennant. Assemble the pennants by adding a letter to each Easter Egg. Place the egg atop a burlap circle, then add to the leafy vine. Adhere to the pennant.
Steph did such a wonderful work on this bright Easter banner! We love how she combined so many spring colors with that neutral burlap, and added those bright Easter eggs, as well!
As Steph mentioned, banners are such a great way to decorate your home. They are easily customized for your particular décor, and can be changed out for colors, seasons, and parties!
