Hello Friends and Hello Fall! I’ve been so inspired by the fall banners I have seen on my Pinterest feed that I decided to make my own. It was pretty easy with the help of some pre-cut wood banners! Want to make a pretty fall banner of your own? It only takes a few steps!
- Unfinished Wooden Banner Set
- Silhouette Machine (you can also use stencils or these fun chipboard letters)
- Silhouette Adhesive Kraft Paper
- Acrylic Craft Paint (I used burgundy, soft suede, & antique white)
- Berry Garland
- Round Paint Sponge
Start by painting your wooden pennants with the soft suede acrylic paint and wait for it to dry. Once dry, dip your round paint sponge in the antique white paint and make polka dots on your pennants. Let the dots dry.
While I was waiting for my fall banner to fully dry, I went ahead and used my Silhouette to cut out the words Fall and a heart. This was cut out on the adhesive kraft paper. I simply wrote the letters FALL in the font of Century Schoolbook. I used a heart shape I had from the Silhouette Online Store. Once my words were cut I used the burgundy acrylic paint and painted the kraft paper. I would recommend using a thin layer of paint. Let the words and heart dry. If you are going to use stencils just use your burgundy paint and paint FALL right on to the banner. If you are using the chipboard letters, simply just paint them and place them on your banner.
Once the banner is dry, peel off the adhesive backing and stick your letters to the wooden banner. String the banner up using the jute provided in the banner package. I weaved in a berry garland and made raffia bows.
