A Christmas Banner with "Believe"

We love this time of year. It's so fun to make handmade decorations for our home! 

I made a Christmas banner to share with the "Believe" collection. I used the neutral colors from this collection instead of the traditional red and green. This collection is so versatile!

I freehand cut the shield to a 6x6 size. Once you cut one shield out, you can use the same as a template and trace onto the papers.

 As you see, I used burlap too. I made that one a little smaller than the first shield.

 The third one is the dark shield inside. You can trace the burlap shield that you made to make this piece.

Decorate the shields as you like, or use this one for inspiration.The little words are from the "Faith" collection. We bought our wooden letters in a dollar shop.

For the garland  we went to the woods and took a good walk and found cute little pine cones.
We used a thin iron wire on a spoon and put all the pine cones together.

I hope you were inspired by this holiday banner!
