Simple Picture Birthday Banner

May 1, 2015

In last week’s post I shared about putting some homemade love into birthday parties. One cute and very simple way to do this is with birthday banners! The first one I am going to share with you is how to make a picture banner.

For supplies, all you need are some sort of twine or string, a hole punch and some photos.

IMG_9798Cut your string to the desired length taking into consideration how many pictures you will be using and how much space between each photo you would like. I would recommend about five or so inches between each photo as well as 8-10 inches of string at both ends for hanging. (A note to my fellow OCD’s: you can also take into account about half an inch of string per photo knot.)

To attach the photos, hole punch a corner of each photo (I did top left). Now simply thread your string through the first photo (leaving your 8-10 inch margin for hanging), tie a knot and your first picture is done! Now thread the longer side through your next photo (leaving your five inches of room from previous photo), tie a knot and repeat until all photos are tied in.

IMG_9811That’s it! When you’re finished, your banner will look like Henley’s birthday banner above. Super simple and a fun way to celebrate someone on their birthday!

Have you made a picture banner before? I’d love to read any DIY birthday decorating ideas you have!
