Spring is here and it’s almost Summer! It’s a great time to make some handmade home decor such as a nest banner! Paired with a few birds nests, and spring flowers, and it makes a pretty mantelscape or banner to hang around the house.

I love styling my vintage bottles on the mantle top with some grocery store flowers to bring a bit of spring in before the flowers bloom outside. These flowers are called Stock. They are so delicate, and smell so sweet. Displayed on vintage books, they look so pretty paired with a nest banner. You can learn how to paint a nest here, or you can also pair it with this free nest printable on a spring mantel.
I’ve included the printable letters for you below. It’s as easy as right clicking and saving to your computer and then printing it out on white card stock.
I used an edge puncher to make the sides a bit fancier.
Use a hole punch at the corner of each printed letter. If you want to reinforce them, or add some color, you can use metal or colored eyelets. Once I added grommets/eyelets at the top, I pulled my ribbon through (you can also use twine or string.). I made a few of these banners and did both to mix it up a bit. If you haven’t used eyelets before you can buy a kit that has everything you need.
After that you can just hang and display.
You may want to resize them depending on the size of your card stock and the size you want to make your total banner.
After the nest banner, if you are looking for a fun craft to do with your kids, you can try this chocolate basket.
I know this is one of my kids’ favorite projects because it means they get to eat chocolate though the entire thing. They love any project that involves candy.
What’s your favorite way to craft for springtime?
