Laruie Anna's Spring banner inspired me to no end... Of course I didn't have all the wonderfulness to create one just like this, so I just worked with what I had.

Buzz had just finished a project using cedar fencing and had all these little pieces left over. When he asked me if I could use them for anything ... the wheels started turning.
The project was simple... I white washed each piece of cedar then printed a bee hive graphic from The Graphic's Fairy along with the word S P R I N G in a font that I liked. I carefully cut around each graphic then applied them face down on the cedar with Mod Podge (make sure to flip your letters before you print them)
I allowed them to dry just over four hours, then carefully removed the paper buy running warm water over each piece while gently rubbing with my fingers, revealing a time worn image that I love.
For this particular project I used brown tulle to tie everything together. I stapled it to the back of each piece making a large loop at the top. . . it looks so light and airy.
It definitely feels like Springtime!
