I was inspired to make this after looking at Abby's post about the CUTE banner she created. If you have not seen her post yet, check it out now!
I searched high and low for the some cute fabric that would go with my theme this year, but I could not find any. I went to Joanne Fabrics but did not fall in love with anything. So, I picked up these foam banner triangles from Michaels instead. Red, yellow, and blue are the exact colors I wanted!
Materials I used:
1. Hot glue gun with glue sticks (I used about 3 glue sticks)
I already had these materials at home, so I didn't have to buy these!
2. One pack "Glitter Pennant Shapes" from Michaels- $3.99
3. One spool of thick ribbon from Michaels- $2.99
It is as easy as it looks! Just let the glue gun warm up, place glue on the foam, and stick the foam on the ribbon! That's it!
When you are done, you will have a very long banner to hang up in your classrooom!
I then found these wooden letters at Michaels for my next project!
Materials for this project:
White Wooden 9" Letters- $3.49 each
4 sheets of scrapbook paper- $0.60 each
Mod Podge Satin- $4.99
Brushes for Modge Podge- $2.39
Sharp Exacto Knife- I already had this, but they are about $5.00
Here's how to begin!
Turn the scrapbook paper upside down just like in the picture. Brush the Mod Podge Satin on the front of the letters and press the letter down on the scrapbook paper, like shown above. You want to front of the letter to be glued to the back of the scrapbook paper. Does that make sense? :)
Let the letters dry when you are done. I took a break at went for ice cream. :) One hour later, they were dry!
Next, take out your Exacto knife.
When the Mod Podge is dry, take your knife and gently go around the outline of the letters and cut off the excess scrapbook paper.
Finally, place the Mod Podge OVER the front of the letters as well! The podge acts a glue and also a satin stain too!
