Spring Shop Window Display with Tutorial

Pin it here.

 

It was time to update the window of our piano teacher’s studio. {Check out our first window display here.} Since Easter is already almost here, I decided to go with a more general spring theme so we could leave it hanging for a while. What could be more spring than flowers, birds and butterflies. :)

These spring garlands would look great in your home, too. Just follow the simple tutorial below.

 

Supplies needed:

  • scrapbook paper
  • craft glue
  • wood beads
  • twine
  • tape

 

To create the flowers, butterfly and bird download the template here:

Print the template on card stock and cut out.

Glue parts together. Let dry. Bend wings/petals to create a three dimensional look.

To make the spring garland, start at the bottom of each strand.

Tape the end of a long piece of twine to a flower.

Tie a knot and add wood beads.

Repeat these steps until you reach your desired length.

To make the pennant garland fold a 12″ x 12″ piece of scrapbook paper in half.

Mark the folded edge at 4″ and 8″.

Mark the open edge at 2″, 6″ and 10″.

Connect the dots and cut on the lines. You should end up with three usable pennants.

Slide the twine between the two halves and glue them together. Make sure to add a little dab of glue to the crease to keep the pennants from sliding around.
