12 Days of Projects – Day 3 Holiday Banner

Hi, friends!  It’s Day 3 of my 12 Days of Projects to celebrate Thanksgiving and get ready for Christmas.  I’m glad I got started and am looking forward to getting more stuff done, woot!  If you haven’t already, I invite you to check out Day 1 Chalkboard Window and Day 2 DIY Mercury Glass. And then join me back here for Day 3…

Don’t you just love all the buntings and banners and pennants everywhere right now? I feel like I want to make one for every event, holiday, etc. I displayed this one in my recent Fall House Tour. This might be the easiest project of the 12 if you use my template! Or you can let your creativity flow and try something different.

I created the pattern on my computer so it could fit all on one page and then printed it on card stock Kraft paper (I am not a hand-lettering type of gal, so I try to find ways to create on my computer and then print out – download free printable here). I then cut out each piece and punched holes, threaded it with twine, and attached it to the side of the window and painting frames with tape (could also use thumbtacks).  So easy!

There are really endless variations for this project including the words, the shapes/sizes of the pieces, the font, the hanging technique in addition to layering on other shapes or including other embellishments. Go crazy and have fun!

Oh, and squirrel!  …thinking of twine makes me think of the World’s Largest Ball of Twine that I do so want to visit some day, ha!  🙂
