Birthday Banner

The best part about this banner is that it can be customized to fit any birthday theme!  For our big day, it was customized with superheroes!


My little one is obsessed with anything involving superheroes.  So, I wasn’t surprised when he requested a superhero birthday theme.  {Although, he did make a special request to have some Transformers thrown in the mix!  And just in case you didn’t know, “they’re superheroes too” according to my now four year old!} :)

Want to make your own?


Start out by cutting circles in coordinating scrapbook paper.  My circles are 5 1/2 inches across.  Then, cut out your letters.  {Mine were all cut out using my Cricut and Sure Cuts A Lot 2 software.}


Using scrapbook glue, paste your letters down to your scrapbook paper.


Now for my little guy’s favorite part…the superheroes!  :)  On cardstock, print out images from the web {just do a Google image search and you’ll find any theme you can imagine}.  By putting four images to a page, I was able to fit my superheroes onto the white cardstock circles.  After the images are cut out with a thin margin around the image, glue them to the center of your white circle.  


Then, using a paper punch, punch two holes at the top of each circle.  {I should have had my Cricut cut the holes for me, but didn’t think about it until after they were cut!}  Now, string your letters to spell your birthday message with your superheroes {or other them picture} between each of your words. Twine works great because it rough enough that it keeps the letters from sliding around. 


Now hang up your super cute banner and celebrate your little one!

{Just curious…is anyone else’s little one obsessed with superheroes??!  I’m pretty sure we talk about superheroes for about 95% of the day! :) }

Super cute banner. I keep meaning to make one, but another birthday season went by without one. I won a chalkboard fabric banner that I've used a few times, but I'd like to try a custom one.

So fun, and I love how you can use it again for other birthday parties... I am a little lazy like that! Thanks for showing off!

This is great for a little boy. Most of the banners look so girly. Well, to be honest, I have a granddaughter so that's probably the ones I notice most! lol Will keep this idea in mind for my nephews though. Thanks for sharing.
