This is my Top Secret Method on how to make a banner!
If you want fancy, expensive,elaborate....then you are at the wrong place.....if you want cheap, simple, and fast....then you have come to the right place!
Red paper I already had in my paper stash. The green damask paper I bought at Michaels for 25 cents each. Ribbon was picked up at Michaels as well. I think 2 rolls for $2.50 Green tulle I bought the whole bolt at Joann's with my 50% off coupon-I'll be using it forever.
Letters I picked up in the clearance bin at Joann's for 50 cents a pack. Glitter I bought last year in the dollar bins at Joann's for yep a dollar(5 small tubes of different colored glitter). Ornament chipboard shapes, Michaels in the dollar bins-pack of 5 for $1. White tulle, wedding section at Dollar Tree for $1. White crepe paper(2 pack) at Dollar Tree. I have also found crepe paper at the thrift store as well(never used) for 50 cents.
So under $5 for the banner.
Ok here comes the Secret Ninja stuff.....I traced the ornaments on the back of the green damask paper and cut them out with scissors. Repeat 3 more times.
I glued the piece of paper onto the ornament with my Mono adhesive tape-any double sided tape would work-even a glue stick. Repeat 3 more times.
Punched out the holes in the paper to get the white tulle through.
Used my pastry cutters(I find I use them more to trace circles on paper than I do to cut pastry) to make a circle that was big enough for my letters.
Sorry blurry picture.....was on speaker phone talking to my health insurance company as I was crafting. Amazing how much I got done in the 20 minutes I was on the phone. Ugh!
Fan fold the crepe paper-guessing how much will go around the red circle.
Hot glue the crepe paper onto the back of the circles.
Put some glue on the letters and pour green glitter-shake off excess.
Hot glue the ruffle red dots onto the ornament, then hot glue the letters onto the red dot.
I used my white tulle and looped through the holes so the banner could hang.
I cut a strip of lime green shiny tulle into ribbons. Added the sparkly green ribbon and red gingham ribbon.
Cut the ends so they would all look pretty.
Did 5 bundles and just tied each bundle before, between and after the ornaments onto the white tulle.
There you go!
You can hang this banner from your mantle, a shelf, a cabinet, a window, even in a wreath.
See I told you it would be Secret Ninja Stuff!
