Hello Pebbles fans! It’s Monique on the blog today sharing a fun and easy DIY Fall project: a decorative banner to bring an Autumn feel to any room! As Autumn is my favorite season of the year I love creating projects like these to brighten up my home. For today’s project I chose the awesome Woodland Forest collection with the beautiful patterns and cute die-cuts.
To create the six pennants I chose six different patterned papers and three different colored sheets of cardstock. The 6 pennants each measure 7.5″ x 5.5″.
Before adhering the patterned papers to the cardstock pieces I embellished and machine stitched them first. I cut the word “Fall” from the Apple Cider sheet, using the mini alphabet punch board from We R Memory Keepers:
This was so much fun and so super easy to do! The punch board comes with an instruction booklet with instructions on how to create each letter of the alphabet, plus the & and the ! and the numbers 0 – 9.
Once the letters and the embellishments were in place I assembled all the pieces of the banner and used some orange colored twine to string them together. I really love the result!
Here are close-ups of the separate pennants. I adore the cute die-cuts in the Woodland Forest collection!
I hope you like this DIY Fall project and can’t wait to see yours if you decide to make one too. For now, happy crafting!

Hi there. It’s Amy from The Happy Scraps here today and I’m excited to be sharing this Easy Weekend Fun Activity Banner with you. We recently moved into a new home and have been spending our weekends working on things in and around the house, getting all kinds of things done that have needed to be done since moving. Since we haven’t done many fun things on the weekends yet this year, and since school just got out, I decided I wanted to make this easy weekend fun activity banner. I’m looking forward to the weekends this summer and getting out and spending time together as a family.
I pulled out the 6 x 6 paper pad from the Jen Hadfield Everyday collection and selected some bright and fun patterned papers that look like summer to me. I cut them each in half so I had two pieces about 3″ x 6″.
Using the Banner Punch Board and one piece of each patterned paper, I cut the flag shaped banner.
Then I trimmed the top off, making them the length that I wanted. I’ve found that if I cut the top off after I’ve cut the triangle part out of the bottom, I end up with the exact size of banner piece that I want.
Then I cut the triangle banner pieces. Once I had all the pieces cut, I punched out the holes in the top to lace the banner together with.
Here are all the banner pieces.
I placed all the pieces on the table, figuring out the order I wanted them to hang.
Using a large pair of scissors, I cut my paper straws into six pieces each.
With a large needle, I threaded my baker’s twine into it. Then I put three straw pieces on my needle and pushed them down on the string. Then I added a banner piece.
I put three straw pieces between each banner piece.
Once I had the banner strung together, I punched out some hexagon shapes and wrote our activities on them.
Using some dimensional adhesive squares, I mounted them onto the banner pieces.
I’m so excited about these weekend activities I’ve planned to do with my family and I’m also excited that it looks so cute to hang up too!
Here it is, hanging from my self.
Doesn’t it just go perfectly with my Hello Summer board?
What fun plans do you have for the summer?

Hello friends! Amy here today from The Happy Scraps, and I’m so excited to be sharing our DIY Master Bedroom Decor with you today. We recently moved, and we have a lot more space do decorate now. Where we lived previously, we didn’t really have a color them or anything for our master bedroom. Since moving, I’ve decided that I want to use the colors gray, white, orange, and navy in our master bedroom. When I saw that the Jen Hadfield Everyday Collection had these colors, I knew I had to do something with them for our bedroom!
I wanted to make something to go above our bed, on the wall. I decided I’d cut out some wood shapes to apply paper to.
Once I had the wood cut out, I traced my shapes onto the back of the paper I wanted to use.
Then I cut out the paper.
I painted the edges of my wood white. I like to do this after I trace the paper, so I don’t end up with a pencil line showing on my paint.
Using wood glue, I spread some onto my wood. I spread it out with a sponge brush, then applied my paper.
I smoothed out the paper well, making sure it was stuck to the wood really well.
Once I had all my wood letters and shapes finished, I decided I also wanted to add a banner to hang above the wood on the wall. I pulled out my banner punch board and had it put together in no time.
After I punched the holes in the top, I used baker’s twine to string the little triangles together.
Then I hung them on the wall. I’m so giddy over how it all came together and turned out!
What kind of decor do you have in your master bedroom?
Hello everyone! Amanda here today. Valentine’s Day candy is the best. It is delicious to eat and fun to give. But there is something fun and novel about giving non-candy Valentine’s day treats as a gift or serving non-candy treats at a party. A healthy treat can really boost your energy when you are bogged down on sugary sweets.
Pebbles Be Mine Collection fruity puns are perfect for dressing plain ol’ fruit and turning it into a party treat. Room moms listen up–this is a super fun way to get kids to eat some healthy fruit in the middle of their sugar bombed classroom parties. My kids are already itching to eat this cute fruit.
There are a variety of fruity puns for a variety of appetites. Not a room mom? These treats would be perfect for family members, friends, or even coworkers.
Place fruit in a treat cup or cupcake wrapper for easy serving. Insert the pick next to the fruit, or stick it right into the fruit so it stays put. These coffee stirrers are way cute, but a skewer or toothpick would work just as well.
Step aside, paper trimmer. It’s time for the decorative shears to go to work. Using good ol’ pinking shears is an easy way to cut cards from a 12″ x 12″ piece of paper. Plus, you get a cool looking edge.
Creating a decorative banner or garland is super easy with the WRMK banner punch board. Use banners to spiff up your party space, or hang around the house just for fun.
The guides on the Banner Punch Board make it super easy to cut out banners all the same size. Just run a sheet of paper through the punch board from one side to the other–no need to pre-cut individual rectangles.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
