I know Thanksgiving has come and gone, but I wanted to share a little craft that I made as part of Eighteen25’s creative team. You could still do this project for December. You’d just have to change the words to say something Christmas-y. Like “believe” or “silent night”.
This little craft was so quick and easy, and I absolutely LOVE how it turned out.
Supplies you’ll need:
Cardstock or Chipboard
Cut out letters
Glitter Tape or Ribbon
Start by cutting out your banner shapes from cardstock or chipboard. I used chipboard here.
You could cut any shape you’d like… a triangle, rectangle, circle, or a shape similar to mine.
Using a foam brush, run a little bead of Mod Podge around the bottom 3 edges of your banner pieces. Do not Mod Podge the top edge, where your ribbon will be.
After you have your edges Mod Podged, sprinkle your glitter onto your banner pieces.
Then shake the excess glitter off, onto a paper plate, so you can dump the glitter back into your container and re-use it when you’re done.
The glitter will only stick to the places you put your Mod Podge.
Then take your letters and glue them to the top of your banner pieces. I used my electronic cutter to cut out the letters, but you could cut them by hand, or buy them at your craft store. You could even use stickers.
Then glue your banner pieces onto a ribbon. I actually used this glitter tape, by American Crafts, and just stuck my banner pieces right on.
Then you can hang it up wherever you’d like! It will be sure to add a festive touch to any decor!
I have mine hanging on my cafe shelves, above my dining table.
