My entryway needed a Summer banner to fill the big white space after the 4th of July decorations were taken down. I was torn as to what shape or style to do. I decided to do palm trees to match the overall theme of my house.
Green and Brown Cardstock
Double Stick Tape
First, I downloaded a palm tree pattern on my Silhouette machine, but you could also hand draw a stencil or Google a printable palm tree pattern to print and use. I ungrouped the pattern and cut out separately 6 tops and bottoms of the trees. I made the tops a shade of green and the bottoms a dark brown.
Next, I used some double stick tape to attach the palm tops to the trunks.
I printed out the letters to spell "SUMMER" in black vinyl . I used my Silhouette machine, but you could free hand them or use scrapbooking letters from your local craft store. I put one letter on each of the palm tree leaves.
Finally, I attached my palm trees to my hanging ribbon in the entryway using mini clothespins.
I love how it brightened up the blank wall for the rest of the season!
