In my last post, I promised that I would show you detailed instructions on how I created my reversible Spring/Easter pennant banner, so here it goes!
I painted each of the triangles on both sides with some chalkboard spray paint that I already owned.
After they dried, I used the washi tape to create a three sided border on the front and back of each banner piece. This washi tape was smaller than I thought but ended up working out great. It stuck well to the painted surface.
Then, using these acrylic paints, I painted SPRING on one side of the banner and EASTER on the other side. It worked out that they both had the same amount of letters. Looking back, I should have painted one of the words backwards so that I could just flip the whole banner around instead of having to take them off and re-string it. Ah, well, you live and you learn.
I’ve used this brand of paint before, so I was surprised when the dark blue and the white colors were so thick and gloopy. The lighter colors weren’t like that at all. I’ve never come across that before, so I might have just gotten a bad batch.
Also, the yellow color that you see pictured above was a paint that I already owned as well. The paint set that I received only had five colors and I needed a sixth color, so I decided to bring in a little yellow.
And, if you missed it before, here again is the finished banner hanging on the mantel…
