Making a Fall Banner

Ann keeps dreaming about making a banner and every year or so, she does.

Last night, she started on one!  Our house is Tip Top Taupe (retired last year) with lots of red accents.  More of a Cherry Cobbler than a Real Red.

Here’s the initial idea.

Fall Banner Idea

We recently put up a nice mirror in the hallway to make the hallway seem more spacious.  I told Ann that’s where she should hang the banner.

What letter do you think she’ll do next?

Do you like the gold on there?  That was an afterthought, but I think it’ll look good with the new fancy mirror.

I’ll be sure that she shows you what the finished project looks like.  It’ll be just the thing we need – a little DIY Home Decor.

And here’s what we used to get started on this banner so far.  I think that we might add some die cut leaves as well.

Banner Making Tips

  • To get the lighter green, you can use Pear Pizzazz, but we stamped off Old Olive onto a scrap of paper and then stamped the banner for a lighter hue.
  • We used an old 1/4″ circle punch that Stampin’ Up! used to sell.  You could use a office hand punch in a pinch.
  • We used Tear & Tape like a piece of Scotch Tape because we don’t keep regular tape around the stamp table.  We just didn’t take the covering off.
  • Be sure to use our shopping code UUQQ9TX3 when you’re shopping for supplies so that we can toss in a little gift for you with the reusable handmade card we send all our online shoppers.

What a great DIY banner idea!

We read & appreciate your comments! They make great bedtime stories for Ann to read to me!


  1. Stamper, my guess is the next letter will be A. Can hardly wait to see the finished banner.

  2. What a clever idea! I love the colors and the gold snowflake is genius!
