12 Days of Christmas Chalkboard Banner

Hello friends.  Can you believe it’s almost December, and that Christmas is seriously just around the corner!?!  This is absolutely my most favorite time of the year.  I love everything about it.  Decorating for the holidays happens to be my favorite part, this year I’m a little slow but it’s getting there.

This year I chose to go with a chalkboard theme to my Christmas decor.  I am so lucky to have such a great mantle (which has yet to be officially decorated) and huge brick fireplace.  Which means I have the perfect spot for hanging cute banners and garlands.  Today I’m sharing this sweet & simple 12 Days of Christmas Chalkboard Banner I made.

This project was so easy to put together.  I simply create some cute little chalkboard tags in my favorite photo editing program.  I then printed them out on to matte card stock, you can use white card stock if you don’t have the photo paper on hand.  I then cut each tag out by hand.  Then using my Silhouette cutting machine I cut some slightly larger circles from a patterned scrapbook paper.  I chose to use a polka dot paper that mimicked the chalkboard look I wanted.  Then using my awesome “this to that” tape runner I put everything together.  Holed punched each tag, then strung them on some fun bakers twine.

I paired it with my burlap garland and some jingle bells I strung on some bakers twine.  It’s simple, I love it.   It’s been an absolute pleasure contributing here on Lil’ Luna in 2013.  Wishing you a very Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year!  I hope you will visit me often at The Crafted Sparrow.
