Christmas Banners

In celebration of Halloween we thought it was only appropriate that we do a Christmas Banner DIY.

What we used:

  • Silhouette CAMEO cutting machine
  • Card stock paper
  • Stencil brush
  • Black acrylic paint
  • 3″ wide burlap ribbon
  • Yarn pom pom balls
  • Twine
  • Bells
  • Butcher’s twine
  • Anti-fray glue

With the Silhouette CAMEO, cut 3″ tall letters

Using the Silhouette cut outs, stencil the letters onto the burlap ribbon

Fold down a flap of the top of the ribbon, place the twine inside
