Star Of Wonder Front Door Banner

I made this front door banner for a Craftster Christ-Centered Christmas Swap I organized. My partner wanted something for her front door.
I used heavy banner vinyl, rip-stop nylon, fine ribbon in 3 sizes, outdoor vinyl paint, and insignia cloth.
The original image was a borrowed design. I improvised the usage of it. The idea for the application of the image is all my own.
This item was made as a gift, and will not be/was not sold.
This is the first draft of this piece, the one I kept. Hers had a computer generated lettering font.
The border and front field are paint, the star and background, and camel are applique work. The black lines were done with 1/8″, 1/4″, and 1/2″ ribbon stitched on.
I used 4 grommetts with 1/4″ holes. She had a metal door, so the piece was secured in her home with heavy magnetic hooks. This is shown tacked up with screws on the ends of bookcases. The camel blanket was detailed with gold paint marker.

Hi! I'm a retired Bridal Designer, and am now spending my time getting back to pleasure crafts! My husband and I are still newlyweds, nearing our 3rd anniversary on October 2. I was single 33 years! We moved across the country from Phoenix Arizona, to Lumberton N. Carolina. The slower lifestyle agrees with us! Both empty-nesters, Jim and I are finishing the work on the 1950's bungalow style cottage. Fortunately, this home has a huge addition.... adding about 40% to the original size. Having to quit the sewing trade due to a disability, I spend my time on projects for home, family, and pleasure- as I feel able. Jim, now a Pastor/Judeo Christian Rabbi; is retired from the tile trade, and currently joins his friend in local ministry. This includes a bible study twice a week at a local prison. Join us as I document the journey in our changing lives!
