Wooden Happy Birthday Banner and Party Sign + Giveaway

Hey friends! I have a fun little tutorial for a wooden Happy Birthday banner and sign for you guys today! . I was invited by The Wood Connection to browse their store and pick out a few items for this project. The Wood Connection has these fun little wooden pennants in a few different shapes and I totally fell in love with them and the possibilities! I am a huge birthday party girl so what better than a Happy Birthday Banner with a sign pointing the way to the party!

Head on over to The Wood Connection (they ship!) and pick up your favorite pennants and other wooden items and lets get started making your own super cute and totally darling banner! Oh! and don’t forget to grab all your paper, paint, ribbon and anything else you might need – they have it all!

First things first: Sand all your items and then paint the backs and sides in your coordinating colors – I did mine all white.

When my paint was dry, I used my Xacto knife and the pennants to cut out my paper. I didn’t take a picture, but I simply used the wood pieces as templates and cut them out. When you do this make sure the paper and wood piece is forward facing (and don’t slice your fingers!) If you do the trace and cut method – make sure everything is backward.

When everything is cut out and dry, use spray adhesive to adhere your paper to the wooden surface. I bought my can at Home Depot a couple years ago and have used it for numerous projects. It is so simple to use: just spray it on the wood and apply your paper… and your done!

Then you will have a nice little pile of pretty pennants and sign pieces.

After I had my paper glued on, I used the Xacto knife again and cut off any pieces that overhung the wood so it won’t rip or tear off. Using a brad poker (you could use a large yarn needle) I poked the paper out of the holes (so I can thread them) and applied my vinyl letters.

Last but not least – I used red yarn and double threaded the banner together and then simply added all sorts of fun ribbon to the banner.

I am totally and completely in love with it! It turned out perfect and I love that I can use it for anyone’s birthday!

I made the party sign the same way: painted. traced. sprayed. applied. touched up. applied vinyl. BUT…. for the balloon party, I wrapped ribbon around the balloon and hot glued on a cute yellow button – then using wood glue I glued on the balloon and glued the whole sign onto the stake (which I painted yellow!!)

I am so excited about these fun birthday decorations and wish someone would have a birthday so I can use them!!
