Hi, Jessica from @BrownPaperBunny here to show you how to make a cute pastel Easter banner. This is a great project to get the kids involved in and looks super cute strung across a mantle or above a window or door. Here’s what you’ll need to get started:
- Tombow MONO Graph Mechanical Pencil
- Tombow Dual Brush Pens (Pastel 10-Pack)
- Watercolor paper
- Tombow Water Brush
- Tombow MONO Drawing Pens
- Tombow MONO Multi XL Liquid Glue
- Ribbon or thick string
Step 1: Draw and Color Your Carrots
The first step is to use your MONO Graph Mechanical Pencil to draw some carrot shapes onto your watercolor paper. Then, using your Pastel Dual Brush Pen 10-Pack, color in each carrot. I made the tops of each one green. You can go crazy with the colors however you’d like!
Next, blend the Dual Brush Pen ink using your Water Brush to get a watercolor-look.
Step 2: Add Details
Once the first layer of ink is dry, use the bullet tip end of your Dual Brush Pens to add some details to each carrot.
Then, use your MONO Drawing Pens to draw cute little faces onto each carrot. I like to add freckles to mine. 😉
Step 3: Cut Them Out
Using your scissors, carefully cut around each of your carrots to get them ready for the final step.
Step 4: Glue Them Onto Ribbon
Using your MONO XL Multi Liquid Glue, glue each carrot onto ribbon or string. I like to put a little piece of scrap paper on the table when I’m gluing. This keeps my work surface clean. Also, it’s best to let the carrot banner dry with the carrots facing down onto the table (the glue side facing up) to prevent them sticking to the table.
Once it’s dry, you’re ready to hang up your cute pastel Easter banner!
