It’s a Banner Day: 10 DIY Banner Ideas

This post is brought to you by Martha Bonneau from MugsyBoo.

Maybe it’s just me, but my decorating for the holidays (any and all of them!) or a shower, or a birthday party, or wedding isn’t complete until I have created a banner.  They are easy to create and add a pop of color to any occasion.  Banners aren’t just for special occasions, however; they are perfect as home décor as well.  I have created banners for my daughter’s bedroom and playroom as well as for my craft room.  I love how fun and whimsical they are, and once you make one, you just might find they end up in every room of your house!

Of course, as a paper crafter I have an abundance of patterned paper and letter stickers at my disposal to make banners from, but the ideas that I am going to share with you today take banners to a whole new level!  Don’t fret though as most of the items that these DIY banners are made with are probably supplies you already have around the house: paper bags, doilies, coffee filters, envelopes and cupcake liners just to name a few.  It’s amazing what supplies you can come up with when you “shop” your house instead of the craft store.
