How To Make A DIY Banner

This spring/summer I've been getting crafty with DIY banners. They are SO easy and really expensive to make. I thought I would do a "how to" blog post in case you want to make one too!

I made this one for my friend who recently adopted a little girl. I took some family photos of them under it when she first came to live with them! It matched the adoption shirts I gifted them!

I made these two 4th of July banners which I also used for Memorial Day! I love the way they came out and thought they looked so cute on my collage wall!

1. Scrapbook paper -  I picked mine up on sale at Michael's
2. Scissors
3. Hole punch
4. Twine, ribbon, string - Anything you like to string your banner
5. Tape - If you are going to attach letters to your banner like I did for my "family banner"
6. Stencil - I printed mine out from google
7. Pencil - To trace your stencil onto your scrapbook paper
8. Paper cutter - If you have one it helps to keep things straight but you can use scissors too

The photos are pretty much speak for themselves to tell you what to do! Trace, cut, punch, string! Then you'll have an adorable banner to hang!

Please note - my bed is NEVER made! I made it especially for this DIY project! I love the way the colors in the banner coordinate with my quilt!

I'm linking up for What I'm Loving Wednesday with Rachel b/c I LOVE crafty/DIY projects. Sorry I've been MIA from the link-up for a few weeks! I'm back!! :)
