Hello friends here is one more DIY Birthday party Decor as I promised. Making this banner is really simple and fun. I made this for a little hero, Saketh's first birthday party.
All you need for making this banner are a whole lot of colorful scrapbook papers, bunting banner template, scissors, glue stick, pencil, doilies, alphabet stickers, hole punch and a thread. Let's get to the fun part. Will tell you details about products I used as we go.
Google search for a bunting banner template image and you will find plenty. Pick whichever you like and print it on to a card stock paper. Cut out the template using a pair of scissors. (You could even draw your own template, its pretty simple and self explanatory.)
Start tracing your template outline on to backside of your colorful card stock papers. (I just showed tracing on front side of card stock to make it clear for you that I am tracing on color card stock and not a white sheet)
Cut out all the traced colorful flags.
I am using Wilton 4 inch dessert doilies and glitter letter stickers. ( You can use whichever pattern you like instead of doilies or even leave them blank and just stick letters)
Stick doilies to all your color flags using glue stick.
Now is the fun part. You just gotto play with arranging color flags in which ever order you like and stick letters to the flags. I really got to the point of breaking my head with arranging a perfect order of colors to make it look good. But frankly it doesn't matter, the final banner is still going to look pretty with random colors.
Here is my banner coming together. "HAPPY"
Punch holes at upper corners.
Tie the alphabet flags together using a thread and making sure you keep alphabets in correct order. Often when you punch holes at corners and try to tie them together with a thread, the paper will be ripped in the process of tightening the knot. Here is a little trick I invented. Get the thread through the holes, place a pen (or anything similar) and knot the thread tight. Once you are done knotting, remove the pen. Try it!
Finish knotting all the flags together. And that's it! It's that simple to make handmade birthday decor.
