Can you believe there are just two-and-a-half weeks until Christmas? Yikes! I haven’t even started my shopping yet because I’ve been busy decking the halls! This week I’m excited to be joining 24 other bloggers for “Creating a Handmade Christmas” which started a couple days ago. You can see the full schedule at the end of this post and visit all the inspirational handmade holiday ideas! Today I have a quick and easy Christmas banner tutorial to share with you. Make this on your own, or get your children involved!
I decided upon “Ho Ho Ho” because it’s whimsical and I needed a short banner for this space in my kitchen.
Not pictured is the glue, brush and stencil.
Too much paint on your brush and some of the paint could ooze underneath the stencil onto the tag.
Enjoy a cup of coffee while you wait for the paint to dry, which doesn’t take long.
You could easily use a hot glue gun to apply the ribbon, but by threading your ribbon through the holes, it allows you to slide the letters along the ribbon. This way, you can space the letters to your liking.
