How to Make a Simple Garden Banner

Lately I’ve been doing a lot of summer decorating in the house, so I thought I’d take a little break and make a simple summer banner. Last Christmas I purchased a chipboard banner and decided to try something similar for summer. So today I’m going to show you how to make a simple garden banner using chipboard squares.

Painted Chipboards and Letters are used to create simple bannerI painted the chipboard squares with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.

I then used a rubber stamp to add pretty script to each square in blue and green.

Finally, I painted the letters with acrylic paint.

Be sure to wait for the stamping paint to dry before adding the letters!

I want to rip out the patio back here and do something new but we need to paint the house first.

  1. I like the banner too… it looks so simple to make that I’m going to try one!!! Thanks for showing us how!
    And thanks for letting us know that you are “normal people” too, and that some projects (patio) wait until others are
    finished (Painting).

    1. LOL Mary Ann! Yes, I am very normal (well, some may disagree with me on that). You should see my laundry room. It’s a disaster! I started ripping the old wall paper off the plaster walls and stopped about halfway through. It’s been sitting like that for awhile now. One of these days I’ll get around to finishing it. For now I just shut the door so no one can see it. Out of sight out of mind, right? 🙂

  2. I totally love the fence and I think it adds the special touch- so shabby chic! It never even crossed my mind that the fence was old. I was wondering. . . the clipboard squares aren’t too heavy for the clothespins?

    1. Rosenda, the chipboard squares are really lightweight so yes, the clothespins will hold them in place. I found 2 sizes of the clothespins at the craft store so you could always use the larger ones and they’d look okay!.
