In a couple of weeks K turns one. I honestly can’t believe the past year has gone so fast and I’m sure the next few weeks will go even faster so I’ve already started the party planning for K’s first birthday party in April. Everyone says that to help your babies learn how to sleep you should put together a bedtime routine and that was one of the few pieces of advice that we followed from day one. Our routine includes changing into pajamas, reading the book Pajama Time, prayers, bottle, and bed. I decided to plan his party using my favorite part of our bedtime routine – reading Pajama Time as a family. So today I’m sharing the first of numerous posts about K’s Pajama Time party, this easy DIY party banner that I made using wood pendants, scrapbook paper, and Expressions Vinyl adhesive vinyl.
Make Your Own Party Banner
- Wood or cardboard triangle pendants
- Patterned scrapbook paper
- Black (or another solid color) cardstock
- Elmer’s Glue
- Adhesive Vinyl like this from Expressions Vinyl
- One hole punch
- Baking Twine
Step 1 – Put your triangle pendant on top of the back of a sheet of patterned paper and trace around it, making sure to also trace through the holes.
Step 2 – Cut out your triangles from the scrapbook paper and punch out the holes using a one hole punch.
Step 3 – Glue the triangle to one of the pendants using Elmer’s Glue, making sure to line up the edges of the pendant and paper. Repeat until you’ve covered all of your pendants.
Step 4 – Cut out stars (or any other shape) from the solid colored cardstock. I used my Silhouette to cut out stars to match my pajama time theme. Once your stars are cut out, glue onto the pendants.
Step 5 – Cut out your letters from the adhesive vinyl. Remove the backing and attach to the stars.
Step 6 – String your pendant on baking twine and hang.
I absolutely love how the banner turned out. It’s going to be perfect for K’s Pajama Time party and the best part was that it was so easy to make. I don’t cut vinyl as often as I should but honestly it’s easier than cutting paper and way easier when you want to cut out and glue on something complex like letters, shapes, etc.
There are so many things that you can do with vinyl and this banner is just a simple way to use it. You can check out my full Pajama Time party here!
