St Patricks Day Banner

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

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 Patrick’s Day Banner turned out:

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.

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.

    1. Aww, Jill!! You’re so cute! Thank you so much for commenting AND pinning. You’re the best!! I hope you have a super weekend as well. XO 🙂

  2. That is just gorgeous!! Love how you improved the original. You have such a creative mind. Mine can barely handle copying other people’s ideas. 😉

    1. 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!

    1. 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

    1. 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. 🙂

    1. Thank you so much, Lex! Glad you like it. I thought the maps would give it a bit of a vintage touch. Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you have a great weekend! 🙂

  4. Um, adorable!! I love that you used the vintage maps as the background. Already saved my vintage maps and plan on making this one for sure! I can do it with paper scraps making it a free project!

  5. Hello, I’m new to blogging… So I hope this question shows up! This is such a great banner!!! Can you please tell me how you distressed it?
