If you're anything like me, you've probably accumulated way too many banners in your party supply box for every possible celebratory occasion: holiday, birthday, etc.

Why not have one banner you can re-use for any special occasion? Keep reading to see the instructions to make this chalkboard banner for your next event

Supplies:

  • Chalkboard spray paint
  • Wooden disks or other shape (enough to spell out Happy Birthday or other common phrase you'll use including spaces between words)
  • Craft felt
  • Glue gun
  • Scissors
  • Yarn

On newspaper or craft paper lay out your wooden disks in a well ventilated area

 

alt

Give them a nice even coat of chalkboard spray and let dry. Re-apply in areas is necessary

 

alt

Cut small square with the scissors out of felt, one for each wooden circle. Mine were about 3/4 inch by 1/2 inch

When the circles are dry, lay them face down evenly spaced about 1 1/2 inches apart. Lay the string across to measure the length you need remembering to allow a  foot or two on each end to hang the banner

Draw a line with the hot glue gun where the yarn will fall and place the yarn on top of the glue

 

alt

 

Take a felt square and place it on top of the yarn. Add a bit more glue if necessary to secure it down

 

alt

 

Continue in a similar manner with the other circles, remembering to keep them pretty evenly spaced

 

alt

After you've let the glue dry for a few minutes you're able to decorate your banner for the first time with chalk! Remember to leave a blank circle in between words so it will be easy to read ;)

Enjoy your chalkboard banner!
