I wanted to make a “happy fall” banner for a little get-together we’re planning, and here’s what I came up with.
I used a cup and traced orange felt circles for the “happy”, and cut out simple triangles for the “fall” bunting. I used a dollar store stencil and some black craft paint to add the lettering. Since I was just doing one letter per piece, I didn’t have to tape down the stencil, I just held it steady, making this a really quick and easy project.
I also added fun polka dots to the fall bunting. I used the end of a marker, since it was about the size of the dot I wanted and dipped it into the paint and then onto the bunting.
To string up the banner, after the lettering dried over night, I added grommets. They are simple to use, you just need the special little tool, I got mine at the dollar store a few years ago, and a hammer.
To start you snip a tiny hole, then insert the grommet from the front, and hammer it closed with the special tool from the back. Easy peasy, and really cute.
I used some orange ribbon to thread them all together.
I love how the little banner turned out and think it will be a great fall decoration to use year after year.
Sometimes life is really a party…a fall party!
