Happy Easter Banner

Did you see my Easter Banner on yesterday's post?  
As promised, here is the tutorial :-D

I was walking through Michael's and saw these cute wooden frames {and they were only $1 each}.  At the time, I had no clue what I wanted to do with them, but I knew that I had to buy a bunch :) 

I was trying to decide on what kind of banner I wanted to make, when it dawned on me that the wooden frames would be perfect!
I didn't like the "natural" look of the frames, so I painted them white. {this was after I originally stained them... but I still wasn't loving the way they looked... so it was on to plan B... haha}
Once they were painted, I sanded them down a bit to give them that distressed look {which I love}

Now onto the paper and lettering
 
I just used some cute scrapbook paper and foam letters I had.  It lucked out that the color of the letters matched the paper so perfectly!
After measuring the size of the frame opening, I cut my paper into 12 equal squares.
Once all the paper was cut, it was time to glue them onto the frames
 
Flip the frame over, add a little Mod Podge {around the inside edge} and stick on your paper
Here they are, all dry and ready to add the letters
I had it really easy, {since my letters were foam stickers} I just pealed and placed.  I left 1 blank space, so there would be a separation between Happy and Easter

Lastly, I added white twine.  I just weaved it through all the frames and hung it up on my mantel.
Once I added my cute bunny statue and my Easter {pom pom} egg, my mantel was finished and ready for Easter!
 HAPPY CRAFTING!!!
