Welcome Fall Banner DIY

Couldn't resist the Spider with Halloween Close By 

I have been seeing a ton of DIY banners for each season and I really wanted to do one of my own to add to our FALL HOME Decor. I initially wanted to use fabric and burlap, but decided against this. I decided to use what I already had on hand and create something new.

Supplies needed:
  • Card Stock (white will do unless you want this banner to be reversible) 
  • Craft Paper 
  • Chipboard Letters (Michaels Craft Store - Chipboard Embellishments "Autumn Bouquet" 52 pieces) SEASONAL ITEM 

  • Mini Clothespins (Michaels Craft Store - Recollections brand "Craft It Halloween") SEASONAL ITEM 
  • Spray adhesive (Loctite Spray Adhesive Multipurpose Acid Free and Photo Safe - I want this baby to last forever!!) Warning- get the kind labeled repositionable because this stuff is sticky. 
  • Bunting/Banner Pattern - Found Here: {Banner Template} I saved it on my computer and shrunk to the size I needed. 
  • Jute Twine 
  • Scissors

  1. Gather all of your supplies 
  2. Cut your Banner Template 
  3. Cut the background Banner pieces using the template 
  4. Cut small squares or circles to use as the base for your letters
  5. Use spray adhesive to attach the second layer of craft paper to the banner background 
  6. Attach the letter using spray adhesive

7. Cut a second set of banners out of card stock
8. Use spray adhesicve to attach the finished banner to the cardstock for stability 
9. Cut your twine and attach the banner pieces using mini clothespins 

And, the mantle won!!
