This is a quick way to make a pretty motivational banner to add some beauty and inspiration to your room or home.
THINGS YOU NEED:
- Pushpins (the cuter and prettier, the better)
- Some twine, ribbon, string, or yarn in a color you like
- Clothespins (the cuter and prettier, the better)
- Motivational cards and/or pictures (or printables from my free resources library!)
- Optional: Cute little charms, mini stuffed animals, polymer clay figurines, etc.
I just used round pushpins from the $1 section at Target, because I was able to find a colorful set right when I needed it.
But just prior to finding them, I was feeling sad that I couldn’t find pretty and cute pushpins in my local stores, so I did a search on Amazon and Etsy, and I must say there are some awesomely cute and pretty pushpins out there! Take a look at these cuties!
The twine I used was also from the $1 section at Target, as they had pink twine just when I was looking for it.
I think they have twine in other colors there right now, but really, you could use anything you may have around the house like grossgrain ribbon, leftover yarn, hemp cord, or even curling ribbon:
The clothespins I used in my banner are from Daiso (I LOVE DAISO!) a discount Japanese store that has AMAZING things. I found the floral print clothespins one week I went there, and then I saw the clothespins with the flowers attached the next time I went. I have seen similar items at Michaels, and also in the $1 section at Target.
And here are some you can find online:

Cute Additions Ideas
I just love cute little stuffed animals and polymer clay figurines, and hanging some on my pretty motivational banner just seemed like the right thing to do. I LOVE my little pink hamster, which I got during my breast cancer treatment at a Japanese store in my area called Marukai.
But if you don’t have one in your area, here are some really cute ones you can order online. (I am especially loving these Pusheen kitty keychains!)
I really like my pretty motivational banner, and it makes me smile to see it, reminding me to be fearless and brave with beauty and cuteness. It really does help motivate me to just go do those squats and sit-ups, or pay those bills I’ve been putting off, or get determined again to BELIEVE that the difficulties in my life WILL turn around.
Have fun making yourself a pretty motivational banner, and may it encourage you!
