So far this is my second completed homemade Christmas decoration & I'm just in love with it.




We rent, so I had this huge blank white wall to work with. This was the inspiration banner/garland I based this idea off of.
The scalloped black background was the most difficult. I couldn't find my scalloped edge scissors, so I pulled up scalloped edge shapes in Photoshop, traced those onto paper, & used them as a template. I'm glad, though - the scallops would've been much smaller if I had found the scissors.
I made the bows myself with wired ribbon, & the extra glittery accent on the letters was added with glitter glue.
I think that the blue letters are my favorite. There are a few more images below (including more detailed views). Comments & suggestions appreciated!

Awesome Job- I *love* the whimsical look of the letters. Now I'm wishing I had cool paper so I could make one like that.
