- 6 pieces of colored foam sheets
- Flag stencil
- 1 sheet of burlap
- White paint
- Paint brushes
- Hot glue gun
- Coffee filter flowers (make your own with this tutorial)
Cut out flag shapes
Either using your stencil or improvising, cut out six flag shapes from the different colored foam sheets.
Cut out burlap squares and glue to twine
Paint "spring" on foam sheets
Using white paint and your paintbrush, paint the word "spring" on the foam flags. Do one letter per flag for the best look. If you don't have great painting penmanship, use a painted stamp.
Glue flags to burlap
Using your hot glue gun, glue the top back of the flags to the twine and burlap. Hold the flag down tightly for about 5 - 10 seconds so it sticks.
Add flower accents and hang
Cut the coffee filter flowers down and tape the backs to the sides of the flags.
Then hang the banner on your mantel and enjoy!
