We have an arched ceiling that greets anyone who enters our home, and for the last year it has not gone for more than a week without being decorated. My girls ask what will go up next as soon as I take decorations down. It sorta looks like we are always having a party... I guess we are celebrating the little things.
It was super easy to make. I cut out the banner shape from scrapbook paper, and wrote the "summertime" letters myself using a Sharpie marker. The beach balls at the end made the girls squeal. For the felt garland, I sewed together shapes that were in a Modern Kids art box from Target that I picked up on clearance a while back. I bought two, so there's a ton left over for other crafts.
