Birthday Banner DIY

We used to use a Hello Kitty banner for everyone’s birthday, including John.  The letters are bent and it’s lost it’s pizzazz since I bought it…3 years ago.  To make this 20 minute craft worth your while, use washi tape and letters that are appropriate for all the birthdays in your family.  I purchased the letters from the dollar section of Target located in the front of the store.  Another option is to purchase letter stickers from a craft store.

  1. Tape the bottom of each paper rectangle. Trip the excess tape.
  2. Add tape to the top of the paper rectangle and fold it over the string.
  3. Glue the letters onto the paper. Start at the “Y” and work backwards to ensure you won’t run out of string.
  4. Add washi tags on each end for decoration.
  5. Hang your banner with washi tape.
  6. Tip – Don’t cut the string until after you’ve added all the letters onto the banner.
