You can make your own nautical DIY baby shower banner in just a few minutes with the step by step instructions below. The best part is that this banner is chalkboard and can be disassembled after the party. Change it up for the nursery or for another party later down the road. Just string the banner on rope to make this one easy project that can be used over and over.
Paint the anchors with a few coats of blue paint. I used clothes pins to lift the anchor off of the cardboard so the wet paint will not stick. I painted both sides for a more finished look. It took me about three coats to get complete coverage.
String one anchor, enough chalkboard pennants for your first word, another anchor, and so on until the DIY baby shower banner is complete. I purchased a white rope as I felt it fit the theme better. The chalkboard pennant kit does come with some twine you can use instead. I actually tied the anchors with a knot to give more of a nautical feel to the banner as well. Just pull the rope through in a loop, knot, and tighten.
Write your words with a chalk marker to get crisper lines. I wrote “IT IS A BOY” but you can choose any phrase that fits your baby shower or party. Chalk markers will come off later with just a little bit of water but will not wipe off during your party.
