I ran into our hippo shower guest of honor at Home Depot the weekend before the big event… she and her hubs were picking out paint for the baby room. Their palette of green, yellow and brown was so fabulous that I grabbed a bunch of paint chips to match theirs before we took off, planning to somehow incorporate them into her shower decor. I ended up making an “It’s a Boy!” banner with them.
To make a similar banner, print the word you’re wanting to spell, one letter at a time on the back of various paint chips (make sure the letters are mirror images).
Cut out each letter (I punched a hole within the area to be cut out and used that as a starting point for my scissors). Glue your cutout on a contrasting paint chip.
Sew your message onto a length of ribbon and you’re done! Fabulous, palette appropriate shower decor that can be reused in a nursery later!
ps- I’m thinking about making both pink and blue versions of this banner to take to the hospital with us in August. Last time, my mom got us “It’s a GIRL!” and “It’s a BOY!” banners and I’d love to have something similar for round 2.
