Wow! Such a beautiful banner. That's a lot of circles. And so worth it!

Audrey Pettit

You are a girl after my own heart with this patriotic banner, Hilary! OMGosh, I LOVE this! I've made pumpkins in a similar way before, but have actually never made any sweet little balls like this before. SO love how they look all strung together like this. Your idea to use baker's twine to string them is fabulous, and I adore those vintage silver beads, too. Fabulous, Girlfriend!


This is such a great embellishment. And what a fabulous work! So many circles - ufff! I will try it on Christmas :-)


Ohhhhh I see Christmas ornaments in my future!! Love this so much, SO many possibilities.
