Quick & Easy décor: Holiday Banners


It’s that time: holidays aren’t coming… they’re here! Ack! So how can you as a crafter create super quick banners or décor from what you already have on hand? Well if you’ve got some cardstock and/or patterned paper and some twine or ribbon you’re set! You’ve got three super quick options:

  • Cut out shape/size of banners from paper
  • Layer if needed/desired
  • Attach with staples, brads, stitching, eyelets, or possibly double sided tape


Brother provided me with my ScanNCut2, but as always the ideas and content is my own. I always just disclaim that in my posts. My ScanNCut helped me make these three banners in no time at all, and as you can see I took three different approaches:

  1. “Joy” layered on letters and backed with contrasting paper. Stapled to tinsel
  2. Big Banner I folded over (and stitched) the tops around the twine. Note center banner piece is larger and has a deer (cardstock) adhered to it.

Hearts cut out (again, ScanNCut) from scraps and then attached with staples to white tinsel type twine.


Here’s a video (link to YouTube) to some how-to and tips with my ScanNCut2.


Looking to get a ScanNCut2 of your own? Contact a Brother dealer for the 650W model, or you can find the 350 model (affiliate link) at Amazon and other big retailers.

  1. Very nice. Thanks for showing us inspiration. Im sure I have a ton of papers that would look much better being used as a banner decoration than tucked away in an iris box.
