DIY "Luck You" Banner

I have always found it so hard to find decor that isn't tacky or over the top for St. Patrick's Day. I love my decor simplistic with a little sparkle and that can be a tough combo to come by. Today, I want to share a little something I made for my home this holiday. It's easy to make and I love the end result! "LUCKY YOU" BANNER DIY

LuckyYou (1 of 1)Here's what you'll need to make this craft: cardstock, 1/8 inch hole punch (like the one you can get here), banner template (I bought the cardboard one seen above from Hobby Lobby, but you can also print one at home), MAMBI Letter Stickers (you can buy them through Amazon here, but you can also find these at Hobby Lobby as well), scissors, and twine. Also, not pictured, but probably good to have on hand would be a pen or pencil.

Step 1: Trace and cut your flag shape out of the card stock.LuckyYou2 (1 of 1)

Step 2: Once you have cut out enough flags for how many letters you will need, place the template on top of one of the flags, lining up all edges. You will then take your hole punch and punch right where the holes are on the template.LuckyYou3 (1 of 1)

Step 3: Your flags should look something like the photo below. Continue until all of your flags have holes.LuckyYou4 (1 of 1)

Step 4: It's now time to add your letter stickers to each flag. Do your best to center each letter on your flags. I use the peak between the two bottom points at the bottom as my guide.LuckyYou5 (1 of 1)

Step 5: It's now time to string your twine through your flags.LuckyYou7 (1 of 1)

Step 6: Your banner should start to look like this, continue on until all of the letters are on the same piece of twine. Don't worry too much about spacing them out until you are ready to cut the twine.LuckyYou8 (1 of 1)

Step 7: Before you are ready to cut your twine, space out your letters, making sure to have enough string on either side of your words to actually hang your banner.LuckyYou9 (1 of 1)

Step 8: Hang your banner in your home! Remember, you can always shift your letters to make sure your words are centered once your twine is secure. LuckyYou10 (1 of 1)

I hope this was helpful in giving you ideas for your own banner. You could use different types of paper to make one for other holidays/events as well! You could even use paper with a pattern like stripes or polka dots to make this a little more fun looking!

Enjoy :)
