How to make a banner for any occasion

I love throwing parties! I have so much fun decorating, designing, and planning for a party. I have discovered that decorations go a long way. They can make or break a party! However, I am fully aware of how expensive decorations can be. It’s ridiculous! I think that I may have found a solution to expensive decorations. A banner can go a long way at a party, celebration, or just decoration for the holidays. Possibly the best part of this solution is that it is absolutely free!

Shanty-2-Chic has a wonderful link to FREE printable letters!

Here, you can find every letter and some punctuation to make any banner you want.

Supplies-

  • construction paper
  • your printed-out letters
  • rubber cement
  • scissors
  • clothespins
  • ribbon

1. Cut out your letters along the black lines. Then paint some rubber cement onto your triangle-shaped letter and glue it to a full sheet of construction paper (you could also use burlap for a fancier look).

2. Then using scissors, cut the excess construction paper off so that it leaves a border around the triangle. If you own a cutting board, this would be a fantastic time to use it!

3. Then take your letters, some ribbon and some clothespins to complete your banner. I used mini clothespins that I bought at Target.

4. I would recommend laying out the ribbon on the floor then connecting the letters with the clothespins and lastly hanging it on the wall.

Now you have all you need to make a banner for any and every occasion! Your banner will be the talk of the party!
