Need a little help on this one

Okay, so I am still working on making things for the twins bedroom. Their walls are so bare! I wanted something to hang over each crib and came up with a pendant that I really like. However, I am not sure if I want to turn them into banners or just hang the pendants from a fancy hanger or something like that. I would love to hear your thoughts!
The EtsyInspired Challenge posted the challenge for this week on Saturday. So of course I used them for some inspiration! The store of focus this week is Skylars Candy Clips. So cute, I so see a few of these in my future!
I picked the colors of this one,

and the flowers of this one for my inspiration:

How stinking cute are those!?

Anyways, I made two pendants with those colors and flowers in mind. I also used the supplies from the kit I sent my friend. She should get hers today, so she was kind enough to let me start early. Normally I wait until we both can play, but I was way to excited! To refresh everyone of the rules set, we were to make a pendant or banner using as much or as little as we wanted from the kit and we were allowed to add extras. I added extras:) Okay so here they are.
The first one will go over Samantha's crib.

Here is a detail of the S

Here is the second one that will go over Tabitha's crib.

A detail of the T.

So what do you think? Should I leave them as pendants or turn them into banners? I will post them again when they are done and hanging in the girls room.
Oh and did you see my play on words with the monogram and sleep tight? I know I am such a dork! I am okay with it:)

  1. Very cute idea! I love it!

    I think hanging them either way would be beautiful. Hanging from a ribbon or string would probably be the easiest and would look great!

    Thanks for playing EtsyInspired this week!
