Deck the halls with boughs of holly AND this colorful, modern Fa La La Paper Banner this holiday season! Super simple and perfect for your mantel, desk or any spot that needs a little holiday cheer!
I’m Keri from Shaken Together and I am so excited to be hanging out with the chicks for their fun Deck the Halls series! With Christmas just around the corner, it’s time to haul out the decorations and definitely deck the halls! And what better way to do that than with a simple, modern paper banner?!
Since I needed a fairly short phrase for this banner, I decided to use Fa La La from “Deck the Halls”! You could also use ‘Ho Ho Ho’, ‘Merry’ or even ‘Christmas’!
You’ll need just a few supplies for this banner:
- Red/white striped banner (I picked this up in the party section of Target for $4)
- Assorted Christmas papers – solid colors or patterns
- Craft punch – this one makes 3.5 inch scalloped circles and it is one of my favorite crafting tools
- Letters – chipboard letters, letter stickers, letter stamps, etc. (I used Thickers from my local craft store)
- Brown ink pad (optional)
First, I punched out six scalloped circles from my Christmas paper. If you don’t have a punch, use a small bowl or glass to trace circle on your paper and cut them out with scissors. I used a brown ink pad and ran it around the edges of the punched circles. This is optional but it does define the edges of the circles a bit and adds a little character. (You can see this in the picture below.)
Next, I used scrapbook adhesive to stick the circles to six of the banner flags. I also decided to flip the banner flags between the words to make it easier to read. Luckily, my banner was solid red on the other side!
Once the circles were attached, I added the adhesive letters in the center of each scalloped circle.
Finally, using the string that was included in my banner, I put the banner together and it was ready to hang! (And can we talk about that super cute white pom pom garland?! $3 in the Target Dollar Spot!)
Anyway, this Fa La La Paper Banner is so bright and colorful … pop it on your mantel, string it across your desk at work or anywhere else that needs a dose of Christmas color!
