In order to prepare for Hello Luvvy's booth at Retro on the Runway tonight, I enlisted the help of my extremely artistic husband to create an awesome banner so that you will be able to spot us from across the room! We used the wonderful banner at the top of this website for inspiration. I can't wait to hear what you luvvies think!
-A drop cloth
-Black craft paint
-A glue gun
At this point, Ty began using this website as a reference to draw out our luvvly logo onto the banner with pencil. Now, most of us don't have his skill, so please feel free to buy a stencil. I know I would!
In the meantime, I began to assemble the same felt flowers I used for the Fall Wreath DIY I did a few weeks ago. This time, I added a black dot in the center of the flower and used a few shades of felt in order to make it look more like our logo. I also cut out felt leaves, which you will see momentarily.
Here she is, all done! I could not be happier with how it turned out! What do you luvvies think? I know this isn't as straight forward as some of our DIYs (I mean, you luvvies probably have no use for a Hello Luvvy banner), but I wanted to use this project to show you how you can take something as simple as an old drop cloth and turn it into something beautiful and unique. I believe in you, luvvies!!
To see this baby in person (and me!), head out to Nightbird Books in Fayetteville tonight from 6-9. I would love to meet you in real life! Plus, we have two fantastic giveaways full of vintage goodness. Hope to see you luvvies there!
