St Patricks Day Banner

I made a St. Patrick’s Day Banner! I’ve never made a real St. Patrick’s Day craft, so this banner is my first one. You are all probably familiar with my banner obsession, so I apologize, but what can I say?! I love them.

This is how it turned my St Patricks Day Banner turned out:

Cute and Easy St. Patrick's Day Paper Banner Tutorial on { lilluna.com }


I didn’t want to show my entire mantel just yet (it’s not 100% ready) so I apologize for no full-on view of it. This banner was completely inspired by a banner I featured last year from Rebecca Cooper.

 Adorable, right? I just made a few changes and made it 3-D.

Here’s how you can make it too…

SUPPLIES:

-Paper

-Green Cardstock

-Scissors

-Hot Glue

-Hole Punch

-Ribbon/Tulle

 

DIRECTIONS:

1. Begin by tracing a banner shape onto your paper. For my paper I found these vintage pics of Ireland Maps. I downloaded them (by clicking on the image, clicking again and then right-clicking and saving) and inserted them into word making them the full size of the paper. From there, I printed them out (in B&W) and then traced the banner onto the back so 2 fit onto each sheet.

2. Cut out banner shapes. Set aside.

3. Cut out hearts from cardstock. I made one pattern, traced it on to to the paper and then cut them out. I also distressed them with an ink pad for embellishment.

4. Hot glue your hearts onto the banner shapes.

5. Punch out holes in your banner and string with ribbon or tulle.

Now you can hang your banner for the holiday to bring you some Irish Luck!

ENJOY!

    Kristyn- hilarious…I literally just pinned this on Pinterest, not realizing it was your banner! It all makes sense now…of course it would be your banner, since I love all your creations! It turned out really cute and I like how you used a map! Good idea! Have a super weekend! Smiles, Jill

    I really like the way you kept this edited….not too much “blarney”…that’s why I really like this. I don’t like when too much is added. I’m inspired! Shari

      Thank you for the kind words, Shari!! And you stole the words out of my mouth… was trying not to make it too “blarney.” LOL. Thanks for stopping by!

    Such a cute simple banner, Kristyn! I love it! I love how you made it 3D.

    I too am a banner girl. Best way to decorate for silly holidays like St. Patty’s Day. :)

      Thank you, friend! You’re so sweet! Banners are definitely my go-to craft for holidays. I’ve never decorated for St. Patty’s before but this was fun and simple and was the perfect amount of green and clovers. :) Hope you are doing well! XO

    OMG so cute! I wasn’t going to do any St. Patty’s Day decor but this just changed my mind. LOVE IT!

      Yay! So glad you like it, Jessica. I don’t decorate for St. Patty’s too much, but this banner was easy and cute and didn’t look TOO St. Patty’s-ish, if that makes sense. Haha! Thanks for stopping by. :)
