A DIY Christmas Banner

Once November comes with it's chilly gloom, my craftiness comes out full force. And my favorite type of craft? Christmas! Gifts and decorations, it doesn't matter to me. Each year my list seems to get longer and longer!

 One of this year's projects was a Christmas banner from On Sutton Place. Ann has such elegant taste and is so inspiring. I love how beautiful her banners are. I shared her Spring banner HERE.

You do have to purchase the banner (which comes as a pdf file), but I had all the other supplies on hand: cardstock, string or ribbon (I used baker's twine), scissors and a hole punch.

I don't think I shared this last year For a bit of extra Christmas-ness, I printed out several vintage Christmas cards and taped them on the front of the apple prints in the dining room. 
Mom and I love the vintage bells!

And to tie in with the framed bells, I placed my vintage bells on the window latch.
