There is something so fun about this time of year and the way it makes me want to dust off my crafting supplies to create little projects to spruce up my holiday decor. I’ll be honest, though: during the holiday season, I am often completely short on time, so quick and easy projects are the way to go for me! If you feel the same, this cute DIY Christmas banner will be right up your alley. Let’s get started!
- Darice Christmas Tree Pennant Kit (Or consider decorating one of these Darice wood banner kits).
- Craft Paint.
- Darice Foam Brush.
- Mod Podge.
- Darice 3/4 inch Circular Sponge Dauber.
- Darice Extra-Fine Glitter in Assorted Colors.
- Darice Pom-Pom Garland, Red.
To begin your DIY Christmas banner project, use the foam brush to pain the entire surface of each of the Christmas tree pennants with the craft paint, applying as many layers of paint as needed for even coverage. Allow paint to dry completely.
Pour a small amount of the Mod Podge onto a paper plate. Press the foam dauber down into the Mod Podge, and then dab any excess onto a paper towel. Working with one tree at a time, use the dauber to create a polka dot pattern on the surface of the piece.
Gently shake off the excess glitter, and–voila! You have a sweet glittered polka dot tree for your DIY Christmas banner! Set the tree aside before repeating the glittering step with the remaining wood tree pieces. Allow all pieces to dry completely.
Thanks so much for stopping in today. I hope you are inspired to see that even during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, a fun, easy Christmas craft, like this DIY Christmas banner, is a great way to get into the spirit of the season.
