DIY Elegant Swan Banner

I am calling it – swans are the NEXT unicorns, and I am in-love! I have to admit, I just got a swan headband for Claire from H&M – true story! And we’re both obsessed! ;) Swans are so elegant and pretty! I’ve been dreaming up some ideas of fun swan-themed projects, and since banners are super quick and easy – ta daaa! – here’s a new, fun project. You wont believe this, but this ONLY costs $6 to make! I won’t tell you how much my shirt was though! ;)

I love how much banners dress up nurseries, dessert tables, parties – the options are limitless! I hope this inspires your next milestone or bash!
