This is the outcome:
This is what it looked like in her room, before it got relegated to behind the door in her new room design:
Here are some up-close pictures of how I achieved the look
I painted on the branch at the top by dipping my paint brush in brown and then dipping both sides of the brush in white. The flowers on the top of the banner are artificial flowers I hot glued on. I then added the romatic looking ribbon (instead of me painting it). I folded the canvas over a wood dowel at the top and hot glued in down. I then tied ribbon to both sides of the dowel and hung it up.
I had so much fun making it. More importantly my daughter loved how it came out. Let me know what you think. I really love and appreciate comments.
