Home Decor & More BLog Hop Day 2

Welcome to the Home Decor & More blog hop. This is day 2 ,  Our host is Cicily the Pink Dalmatian Scrapbooker. If you came from Jessi then you're in the right spot. If you want to start from the beginner than head on over to http://pinkdalmationscrapper.blogspot.com/ and hop your way thru some amazing home decor. The Pink Dalmatian is giving away blog candy, you can see all the details on her post. Some of the other hoppers may be giving away candy to so be sure & check them out.
We all have drawers, closets & possibly rooms full of scrapbooking supplies. Those beautiful, colorful supplies don't have to be limited to our pages. We hope to inspire you to use your supplies in Home Decor projects that add that special touch to our homes. 

Today I wanted to share with you this Dream banner I made.
I tried something different with this banner. I bought some Jewelry wire and put the banner together with that.

I started by wrapping a 5 inch piece of wire around a pencil to give it some curl, I did this for every piece that is hooked together. I used paper from Me & My Big Ideas. The stack doesn't have a name on it. But I just love the paper.

I also used Storybook for the letters, butterflies, and scrolly thing. I added glitter to every cut to make it stand out a little more. The letters are cut in DCWV glitter cardstock.


Here are some close ups of each piece of the banner.









I drilled holes in the chipboard for the wire- ok my hubby drilled the holes, but I was supervising the whole time. LOL!
I then laced the wire through the holes and make little knots on the back sides of the chipboard and wire.

Thanks for stopping & looking at my Home Decor project. I am giving away some blog candy too, woohoo! I will be giving away the New Limited Edition Tim Holtz Spring Ink Set or the Spring Re-inker set, your choice.

After browsing around your store I have fallen in love with Basic Grey!! The colors are gorgeous along with the hot air balloon and floral patterns. I love liquid pearls and the chipboard album with the tabs.
