Easy Christmas Idea #6 ~Make Your Own Bunting or Banner

I crafted a Christmas banner for today's Easy Christmas Idea #6.


Easy Christmas Ideas ~A series at Blue Clear Sky~

I will be sharing some simple ideas for Christmas decorating using items you may already have or that you can find inexpensively. My goal is to inspire readers looking for affordable and easy ways to decorate this Christmas. Your style may be different than mine, but many of the ideas can be altered to suit your taste.

Easy Christmas Idea #6 ~ Make Your Own Bunting or Banner

Christmas buntings or banners can be made with fabric, ribbons, string, cardstock, fancy papers, paint, chipboard letters, glitter... there are so many options using supplies you may already have on hand or can pick up at discount or dollar stores.  The flags can be plain or have text like 'JOY', 'HOHOHO', 'NOEL', 'MERRY CHRISTMAS' and more. Hang the banner or bunting on a mantel, curtain rod, Christmas tree, banister, across a doorway, on the porch... and enjoy a splash of Christmas cheer.

You can find more photos of the banner in this post.

Hoping all my American friends had a great Thanksgiving. I'm so looking forward to your Christmas posts!
