{Getting Crafty} "Lucky" Banner

I thought the Spring mantel needed a little something more and I've been wanting to make a banner.

I had all the supplies on hand so I gave it a go.
I had these chipboard letters left over from my daughter's Sweet 16 party.
I had burlap left over from this pillow project and cut them into triangles. I used a hole punch to make two holes at the top of each one.
I painted the letters in a glitter green paint.
I had this twine left over from this birdbath project and these twine bottles.
I hot glued the letters to the triangles and strung it all together on the twine.  
I liked how it looked but thought it needed a little something extra.
I found this ribbon from my little Irish dancer
I tied bows on the ends.

Total cost for this project = $0

Leftover twine, burlap, ribbon, etc. and it turned out so wonderfully, this is my kind of frugal. Love it. Thanks for linking it to the St. Patrick's day party!

My favorite price! That came out really cute, and the bows are a perfect touch.
