Banner for a Friend


My friend asked me the other day if I would mind making a banner for a memorial she was getting ready for, and of course I said yes!  Banners are one of my favorite things to make.  They’re so easy to pull together and I usually have enough stuff lying around my craft room to pull one together.


Her only requests were that she wanted it to be simple and black and white.  So I gathered up some supplies and had some fun.



 These are the two ideas I came up with and let her pick.  Drum roll please… and she decided on the first one!


I just traced an old banner I had and cut it out.


I wanted to add a little extra texture so I rubbed chalk along the outside.


Then I just took a chalk marker and wrote the letters free hand.


Here is the finished product. She wanted it hung on the palette board I had and it all came together nicely.  It says Richard remembered.


The memorial was a beautiful tribute and so were the decorations, she did a really good job.  I wish I had more pictures to show you of all the decorations.  You can kind of see the table center pieces in the background of this picture.  She did wood rounds and added cute touches on the top, every table was a little different.
