DIY Bridal Shower Banners

What is the first thing you see when you walk into a room for a bridal shower besides the guests? It’s the bridal banner! It’s strung up above the designated seat of honor, haloing the bride-to-be. There are so many different styles and types of banners, choosing just the right one can seem like searching for a needle in a haystack. Sure, you can purchase pre-made banners, but what about making your own? It’s personal, fun, and a wonderful way to honor the bride-to-be! So, here are the directions and how-to’s for making your very own bridal shower banner!

Bridal Shower Banner by Pup Fan

What You Need: Many brides use pretty paper and card stock, string and glitter to make their bridal banners, but my favorite has to be a rustic-country styled banner; using white chipboard, card stock, and twine, you can make one gorgeous banner! So, here’s what you need:

Hemp Twine by Emilian Robert Vicol

Colored Card Stock by Purple Sherbet Photography

  • Glue: Any kind of hardy glue will work

Elmers Glue by Malcolm Koo MK2010

  • Pink Hearts cut out from paper
  • Letter stencils $4.49 (Amazon Prime Members)
    Alphabet Stencils by Leo Reynolds

What To Do: Now that we have our materials in hand, let’s go ahead and see what all it takes to make this one-of-a-kind banner! * Cut holes into the top corners of the chipboard sheets * With the colored card stock and letter stencils, cut out the letters to make what you want it to say.

Examples include: * Soon to be Mrs.! * From Miss to Mrs. * Happily Ever After * Future Mrs. ________ * Bride To Be * Once all of your letters are cut out, glue them to each chipboard sheet. Let them dry for a while before moving/touching. * In between each word, place a chipboard with a heart glued on it to space out the words. * Once you have all the letters and hearts glued onto the chipboard sheets, string your twine through the holes. Your banner is now complete! This is one of my favorite banners and it’s super easy to make and pretty inexpensive too! With all of your materials in order, it can cost around $25. Now, most all of those products were found on Amazon.com and the cheaper prices are for those with an Amazon Prime membership. There are plenty of other places you can buy those products for inexpensive as well, but Amazon is one of my favorites. You can try websites such as eBay.com, officedepot.com, and staples.com. Any of those websites are bound to have the materials you need to make your bridal shower banner. Now that you have an idea, directions, and a price range, making the bridal banner is as easy as 1-2-3!
