DIY "SPRING" Garland


I don't plan on doing too much spring decorating, but I did want to add a fun garland above my entry table.  After a long cold and snowy winter it was high time to add a bit of color.  I use the term "color" lightly, as I tend to lean towards more neutral and cool tones in my home.  Lately, I've been on a major black and white kick, so of course those were my go to colors for the garland.   So much for color, huh?



Here's what you'll need:

- Wood Banner pieces
-Craft Paint
-Scrapbook paper
- Letter stickers
-Mod Podge
-Jute

I started by painting the wood pieces a pretty blue using Americana Decor chalk paint.  This counts for color, right?  Once my wood pieces were dry I cut and glued strips of scrapbook paper to the front. 

After adding letters to spell "SPRING" I strung the pieces with jute and hung the garland from the mirror above our entry table.
I love that it's subtle and adds just the right amount of color to the space.

I also picked up a faux dogwood branch from hobby lobby to replace my favorite cotton ball stems.   Nothing says spring more than Dog Wood trees and since we have a few around our yard I thought it would be the perfect addition.
