Paper Bag Easter Banner

{Easy Easter Banner}

Gemia from Phat Quarters Blog invited me to do a tutorial swap with her. So we each picked something from each other's blog to recreate. Fun, right? I tied it right in with my monthly craft group and made an Easter banner.





Here's Gemia's original paper bag banner. Be sure to click on her version! Here's how I made my take on it.



Supplies:

5 brown lunch sacks
Gold clothes pins and chalkboard egg clips (found at Michaels)
White paint
Mod Podge or other glue
Gold glitter
Pretty paper
Twine

Start by cutting a triangle out of the bottoms of the bags to make flag points.




Use the end of a paint brush or pencil eraser to paint dots on the bags.


Add a glitter stripe to each egg shape and covering with glitter.




While the glue and the paint dry, cut paper to 2.75 inches x 5.5 inches. Add a solid color behind that's cut to 3 inches x 5.5 inches. Glue together and glue to the paper bags.




Use clothespins to hang bags from the twine and add eggs in between. Then string up your new decoration!
