For this project you'll need:
Paint (I used gold, silver, dark green, red, white, and black)
Sewing machine and brown thread (or you could hot glue it!)
I cut my banner into different shapes. For the longer ones I cut out pieces about 12 x 5 inches wide and then folded them in half. The shorter ones are 10 x 5 inches wide. The "T" is about 14 x 5 inches and then I cut the bottom into a dull point. For the "C" and the "S" at the end, I took a longer one and cut a small v shape out of the middle.
I started off by painting each of my squares white and then waiting for them to dry. For the polka dots, I found this really awesome brush at Hobby Lobby that is already shaped like a polka dot. The holly and the tree I drew myself and cut them out of card stock to create my stencils. The snowflake and the damask were both Google searches that I printed on card stock. Bebas Neue is the font I used for all the letters.
When everything was dry, I got out the sewing machine and sewed the sides and the bottom of each square. Don't sew the top or you'll have a hard time threading your twine through!
I thought it was a pretty fun project and now my apartment looks a little more Christmasy! :) Merry Christmas!
