I’m really excited to share this fun project that has been ages in the making.

I have a terrible tendency to pick up/plan projects and leave them sitting around for literally years. Isn’t that awful? This little project I have had in mind to make for at least 2 years, and I’m happy to see it finally complete!
I found this fabulous wooden HOME banner in a kit from Adorn-It at a scrapbook convention.
The kit came with great directions on what papers to purchase to match the colorful design they show above, but it creates at least 2 problems for me.
First, as much as I love the bright color combo above, that won’t fit anywhere in my house!
And 2, I have a slight banner addiction. I try to keep them holiday-related so I can rotate them around, so a banner that is up all year round could take up valuable other-banner space. 😉
I knew where I wanted my non-banner to go so I gathered some papers that would match my black & white kitchen. I fell in love with the Union Square collection from My Mind’s Eye!
I traced the letters on the paper, cut them out, then used Mod Podge to attach the two together. I made sure to sand the edges so they were nice and clean.
The kit also came with some lovely little shape embellishments. I knew I wanted to decorate my letters with them somehow, so I traced, cut, and Mod Podged a couple of those also.
At this point I also decided to go back and ink all of my edges with black ink.
I used various shapes from the kit and other embellishments from my stash to decorate each letter. And to make it even more “homey”, I found a chipboard house and tree in my stash and covered them with more scrapbook paper.
Since I knew I didn’t want another banner, I layered the letters in front and behind one another and glued them in place. Now instead of a hanging banner I have a fun sign to sit on a shelf!
My black hutch is my pride and joy in my eat-in kitchen.
And I think the HOME sign is the perfect addition to it!
And another project to mark off of my to do list!
Always a good feeling.

This looks great! I'm going to have to keep an eye out for letters I like so I can do something similar.
