I just love the new fun paper rosettes in all the beautiful colors that are available at Consumer Crafts now! They are so much fun to work with and I was so inspired this month to have fun creating with them! And so today I am really excited to share this really cute Hello Spring DIY garland with you! It is beautiful, adds a punch of color to my mantel, and only takes 3 supplies to create! Seriously!
Supplies needed to make your own spring DIY garland:
- Core’dinations Party Mixers Rosette Garland (I used Coral)
- Chalkboard Banner Set (I used Flowers)
- White Bistro Chalk Marker or Traditional Chalk
First I removed my chalk flowers and rosettes from their packaging. As neatly as I could, I wrote the word “hello” on my flower chalk banner. I don’t have the neatest handwriting but I did my best! I found that the word showed up best on this banner if I traced over my letters a couple of times to get a nice, thick layer of chalk on it.
If you don’t have the neatest handwriting (I certainly don’t!) enlist the help of a friend, child or husband to write this for you. It doesn’t need to be perfect but I really do love cute writing.
Then I used the jute string that came with the chalkboard garland and I strung the chalkboard flowers on it. In between each chalkboard flower, and on each end, I used the small clothespins that came with the rosettes to attach the rosettes to the jute string.
Yes it really is that simple! Can you believe it!? This is such an adorable DIY garland and perfect for spring! But it only took a few minutes and 3 supplies to make! I absolutely love simple craft projects like this and they are really projects that anyone can do.
And I love the fun chalkboard style mixed with these modern and pretty rosettes. It is such a fun combination!
Do you have a spring garland on your mantel?
