Spring Banner from a Chipboard Album

Spring is in the air! Have you started to think about easy Easter or spring craft ideas yet? I have a simple decoupage doily banner for you to try . . . perfect if you’re looking for a project that only takes a few minutes to pull together!

Spring Banner Ideas

I recently found these large chipboard journals in the discount bins at the craft store. I loved the floral shapes and I couldn’t resist picking up a couple of packs. I wasn’t sure what to make with the shapes at first . . . but I knew the flower silhouettes would be cute for spring.

When I got home, I thought that the pre-cut holes on each board would be the perfect way to hang the chipboards on a string, like a garland. So, I got to work to decorate the shapes.

Chipboard is a great medium to use with decoupage. You could really stick anything to it . . . pretty scrapbooking paper, tissue paper . . . but I chose to use simple doilies for my flowers.

Instructions

Adding Mod Podge to a chipboard album with a paintbrush

Step One: Brush a liberal coat of Mod Podge over the center of each flower shape. Press a doily down over the glue and smooth out any bubbles. Allow to dry.

Step Two: Apply another coat of decoupage over the top of each doily to seal them. Allow that coat to dry. You could glue down something decorative in the center of the doily (like a big button), but I kind of liked the look of flower without anything else.

Step Three: Tie the chipboard pieces to a length of ribbon. Space each flower out evenly along the ribbon to create your doily banner.

I tied my spring banner to the banister at the bottom of our steps. I love the mix of green and white colors with the flower shapes. It is a perfect (and easy) way to welcome a little spring into our home!

i love this! You can use this for so many things - especially if you put letters in the middle of the doilies. Spell happy birthday, or a name, or spring or easter.... The possibilities really go on and on. Great project!
