Sometimes it’s the small simple crafts that can bring you the most joy. Yesterday afternoon, I put this little Today Be Happy banner together in under an hour and I’m completely smitten.

How do I make a Be Happy banner?
My first step was cutting to size and gluing down the different ribbon embellishments with a hot glue gun. I also used my gold foil paint pen to add some polka dots down the side.
Next, I folded the canvas over a peach striped paper straw and hot glued the canvas down to itself. I used the straw instead of dowel rod. I liked the color it added.
I cut down some scrapbook paper to size and wrote “BE HAPPY” on it. Then, that was glued down.

Last, I cut some white felt and made a little flower for a fun final touch.
I have plans to hang this little beauty in my soon-to-be updated office + guest room. I guess I need to stop doing cute wall decor and start actually working on the actual office + guest room, ha!
