Easiest Banner Ever!

Happy Wednesday Friends! I love creating and re-creating, but isn't it nice every once in awhile to find a perfect little accent that is ready as is? Especially when it comes from the bargain bins...

Easy upcycled banner

I found this fabulous banner for $3 in the bargain bins at Target! I love the printed burlap--in fact the cheerful colors inspired my message, Happy.  I have found some of the best stuff by taking the time to dig through the bins at Target and Michaels. This banner was packaged in a small flat square and I could have easily missed it, otherwise.

I simply added the letter stickers and hung it up on the mirror over my mantel--come back Sunday to see how I styled the rest of the mantel!

  1. Love this Cecilia!! It is the best way to shop and there's nothing more satisfying than finding a great bargain. Now I want to run to Target and start looking. ;)

  2. That is so cute, Cecilia...and perfectly "Happy"!

  3. Very cute! Honey, I'm too poor to shop anywhere right now. That Italian blog that stole my URL nearly ruined me. Or maybe she did, if things don't start looking up.

  4. Cecilia, that is so cute! I like it - Happy!

    Hugs, Dianne

  5. Great find Cecilia! You are the best shopper, I need you closer. Hugs, Jo
