make your own: glitter banner

GlitterBanner8The idea for a glitter banner stemmed from a DIY that I saw on A Beautiful Mess. As soon as I came across this easy tutorial, I knew that I was going to make my own version of it. I had plans to do one for Christmas, but given that it very quickly became a very hectic season, I had to scrap it and save it for another day. Although it’s not a very manly project, I decided to create a glitter banner for Geoffrey’s birthday. I loved the results so much that I plan on displaying it year-round in The Little Barn!

This is what you’ll need to make your own banner:

GlitterBanner1Glitter foam sheet (2)
Suede lace
Scissors
Printer
Printer paper
X-acto knife
Crazy glue
Pen
Cardboard

Steps:

GlitterBanner31. Using your computer and printer, create the word of your choice on a Word Document or any free stencil software in large letters. Print. Cut out each individual letter. Set aside.

2. Lay out the glitter foam sheets so that the glitter sides are facedown. Place each letter on the back of the foam sheet, in the reverse direction. (I initially forgot to do this, and began to trace them right side up.) Then trace the letters onto the back of the glitter sheets.

3. After all of the letters are traced, begin to cut them out using an X-acto knife. Be sure to place a piece of cardboard under the sheets to avoid cutting your crafting surface.

GlitterBanner44. Once the letters have been cut out of the foam sheets, place them face down. Spell out the word that you are creating in reverse, glitter side down. Take the suede lace and string it along the top of each letter. Glue it to the back of the letter with the crazy glue.
