A while back a made a banner to hang above Harper’s bed, so I thought I would share it with you today.
I knew that I wanted a banner that spelled out something fun and that I would probably add tassels or pom poms to it. Her bedding is so fun with the polka dot swirls and chevron and she has such a bubbly personality that “hooray” felt like the perfect word.
It was really easy and inexpensive to make and only took about an hour total. I bought all my supplies at JoAnn Fabric. I used purple and white felt and pink yarn. I printed out the letters onto cardstock using the Bebas font. Then traced them onto the white felt and cut them out and glued them to the purple felt pennants. For the centers of the “R” and “A” I cut those shapes out of the purple felt and glued them on top of the letters. You don’t have to do that step and I actually probably wouldn’t add those it I did it over, but I like it both ways.
I had been seeing so many cute projects on blogs and Pinterest using tassels so I decided to give it a try. They’re are so easy to make.
Then to make it into a banner I used white string and hot glued the string to the back of the pennants. I also put a tiny bit of hot glue into the tops of the tassels where the string goes through them just to hold them in place so they don’t slide around.
Let it dry and hang it. Done! It couldn’t be any easier.
I love the way it turned out. And best of all, Harper loves it. I also plan to add at least two more banner type strings to this. I’m thinking maybe a strand of pom poms and then one that has either felt triangles or circles.
This would also be super cute for a birthday party, baby shower or any party really and would be a great keepsake.
Her room is far from being done, but I’m making progress. Albeit very slow progress! On to the next project!
