DIY Project Instructions


  1. Paint the paper with a watercolor wash and allow to dry. Add two colors to each page, making sure to apply the colors in order you want create your banner. In this case, it is a rainbow with the color so red (pink) and then orange, yellow, etc.

  2. Print the alphabet letters on to the cardstock. Make sure to flip the paper in the right order so your printer prints on the colored side of your paper. it's recommended to test this on a blank page first. Resize the letters to create the banner size you’d like. For this project, these letters are printed at 70% of the original size.

  3. Cut out each letter banner.

  4. Lay all the letters out in order and then glue the twine to the front of each letter. Allow to dry.

  5. For extra fun, use the leftover colored paper to make your own tassels and then glue the tassels to your banner.

  6. Hang it up to display and enjoy!
