Spring is here, and we’re starting to feel the weather get warmer and see the flowers bloom in my neck of the woods. Now that it’s officially a new season, it’s time to put away the last of the cold weather décor and transition to some items that are bit more colorful and bright!
Because there’s a seemingly short transition from spring to summer holiday décor, I like to make sure anything I display for the season is budget friendly and doesn’t take too long to put together. This printable spring banner fits my criteria perfectly! You can print it out on your home printer (with the free printable spring banner I’ve provided) and assemble it in a matter of minutes. Let me show you how it’s done!
Spring is all about enjoying the refreshed and renewed outdoors. Why not welcome the warmer, sunnier weather with this adorable banner, a spring-inspired cocktail, and a nap outside in your backyard oasis?
DIY Printable Spring Banner
Gather these supplies
- “Hello Spring” banner printable
- Printer and printer paper (thicker cardstock is preferable but not required)
- Craft knife and mat
- Double-sided tape
- Baker’s twine
- Bone folder (optional)
You can find all of these supplies at Amazon — and save with Amazon promo codes!
Step 1: Print your banner on your home printer. Thicker cardstock works very well for this project and makes it last longer, though it’s not required.
Use your craft knife and mat along with your ruler to cut out each banner piece along the edges.
Step 2: Don’t forget to cut off the small corners off of the top edges with your craft knife! Repeat with the remaining banner pieces.
Step 3: Fold on the dotted line with your fingers.
Step 4: Smooth down the fold with your fingers or a bone folder. For thicker paper, the bone folder comes in handy and makes a cleaner edge than fingers alone. Budget friendly tip: You can also use a credit card if you don’t have a bone folder.
Step 5: Open the flap again and place a piece of double stick tape down inside the fold.
Step 6: Cut a length of baker’s twine (long enough to fit the banner) and place on the double stick tape in the fold. Smooth down.
Step 7: Continue assembling all of the pieces until the banner is finished. You can do one long banner — or you can do a two-tiered banner as I did.
Display your banner in your home — in a doorway, on a wall, or even on a mantel. The colors make it perfect for an Easter mantel as well. It’s so versatile!
