For Valentine's Day I made an easy heart banner and I enjoyed it so much I decided I needed a new one for St. Patrick's Day! On a quick trip to Jo-Ann's I found some great thick felt stickers on sale for $1.79. Since I already had the jute twine and burlap ribbon on hand, this made for a very inexpensive project.
- 1 Spool of 2.5 inch wide burlap ribbon (this one is similar to what I bought)
- 1 package felt shamrock stickers
- Wax paper or scrap cardboard
- Hot glue gun and glue
- Jute twine
Step 1: Make Garland
Cut four inch long pieces of ribbon from the spool. Fold the ribbon in half "hot dog" style and cut out a notch to make the notched banner shape. Fold the top 1/2 inch of ribbon over to the back. Hang the pennant pieces on a long piece of jute twine, by resting the twine in the gutter created when the 1/2 inch tab was folded to the back. Using hot glue to secure. Be sure to work over a piece of wax paper or scrap cardboard, as the hot glue may sneak out the holes in the burlap!
Step 2: Add Shamrocks
My bag of shamrock stickers came with both light and dark green shamrocks in different sizes. I chose to alternate large and small shamrocks down the banner including a few banners with two tiny shamrocks instead of one bigger one.
Nothing like a super quick, super easy, adorable St. Patrick's Day decoration! Hang your banner on your mantle, across a window or on a door.
