A Snowy Banner

Happy Saturday friends!
I finished stitching these charts Snow Place Like Home from Country Cottage Needleworks last night..**** I realized after I uploaded my blog that I had the houses in the wrong order ! These next 2 photos are how I intended the banner to be with the bigger houses on the outside :) ***
My only explanation was that I stayed up til midnight finishing it :)
and you can read more about Winter Wonderland here..
 There are 5 charts I only stitched 4 ..I left off the one with the words. I also changed the border on 2 of them so they were all the same snowflake border. I  removed the people and stitched the first charts snowman and trees , and changed that house to the ladybug color. I have had these charts since they came out so I am excited to have them finished!
 I knew I wanted to make a banner from them I mounted them to sticky board.. and ruffled some torn red gingham ..added greenery to the top .They were actually little greenery wreaths that I cut in half . I then added a bow of burlap and aqua ribbon and some red ticking.. I topped it all with a covered button.

 I hung them from burlap with a red edge ..
 and then hung the burlap from an icy greenery garland..

 Right now they are hanging from the vintage window in the family room.. I might move them to the garland on the stairs .. we will see! :)
****Please remember if you copy my finishing ideas that you be considerate and give a link to my blog or facebook page..****

These are small ..about 4 x 4-1/2 inches so you can stitch one in a couple nights!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
