Decoration Obsession: Banners

Since I have a very limited budget, inexpensive and easily made decorations are what currently fill my apartment.

Something that I want to add to my bedroom is a banner. I’ve seen banners all over Pinterest and other blogs. I love the versatility of them and the fact that you can literally string whatever shapes, colors or quotes you want across a piece of string or ribbon. It’s an easy decoration that you can easily adjust to your own taste.

Here are a few of my favorites that I’ve seen while browsing the internet —

Letterpress Crush

I recently moved into a new apartment in Philadelphia. Ever since my move, I have been trying to figure out the best ways to decorate my first “big girl” apartment without forcing myself into debt.

My search has brought prints to my attention. They’re all over Etsy, Pinterest and a few of my favorite blogs. Many of my favorites are letter pressed prints with simple phrases or a lone illustration.

I definitely have a slight print obsession, but have yet to purchase one.

I love their versatility. As shown in the pictures below, they can be simply strung on a piece of string, or mounted on the wall with a heavy frame.

Since they are definitely not cheap, my plan is to buy a few that I really like, and use the inspiration I get from other prints to create my own. They may not look quite as flawless, but I imagine I can still do a pretty good job while sticking to my tight budget.
