Quick & Easy Thanksgiving Banner Tutorial

Quick & Easy Thanksgiving Banner

I’ve never been much of a seasonal decorator. Partially because it can be a lot of work! But when I saw these chipboard letters, I knew this would be one holiday craft I could actually do! This took me less than 20 minutes including taking pictures. I wanted to share a tutorial with you so that you can make your own (if you can even call it that with how easy this is)! :)

Thanksgiving

Supplies:

  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Ribbon of choice (I used 1/2in green burlap ribbon for mine!)
  • Chipboard letters – I found these in the $1.50 bins at Michaels!

Steps:

Thanksgiving-2

Cut your ribbon into 2 pieces. These could be as long as you like- I ended up cutting my ribbon spool in half. Next, choose your saying and lay it out on the ribbon until you like the spacing. You could do this all on 1 ribbon if you wanted as well, I happened to like the 2 layer look :)

Thanksgiving-3

Start at the middle and take one letter out.

Thanksgiving-4

Apply hot glue to the top portion of the letter that overlaps the ribbon.

Thanksgiving-5

Then stick the letter back into place. Repeat with each of the remaining letters, one at a time, until finished! Note: make sure you do this on a hard surface as the hot glue could soak through your ribbon and adhere to the surface!

Thanksgiving-7

All done! Just use some tape or nails and hang it up wherever you’d like! Holiday crafting doesn’t get much easier than this! And it got tons of complements at my family’s thanksgiving dinner too (we celebrate early as we are usually all busy the day of)!

Until next time!
