Bowling birthday banner....

It's a Bowling Birthday Banner!!! Such use of alliteration. My 7th grade English teacher would be so proud!

My good friend, Angie, brought me some felt this week out of the kindness of her heart and I was super excited that it was the exact same colors and ribbon that I used for Jansen's cupcake stand a couple of weeks ago.

Jansen is super opinionated and has definite ideas on what he wants at his party. One of those things was a bowling birthday banner. Because the party is at the bowling alley and we can't use any of their wall space, I am not sure where I am going to hang this ( maybe on the edge of one of the tables), but I digress.

Here is my version of his birthday banner. This was SOOOOOO easy and took me 20 whole minutes.

I traced the pennants on felt squares and cut them out. Then, I printed off his name using a font I liked in Word, traced it and cut them out. All that was left was the bowling pins and bowling balls...trace, cut out. I glued each one down with hot glue and then hot glued polka dotted ribbon to the tops.

Yes, it is tacked up to my cabinets using tape simply for viewing purposes....That's how I roll!

  1. Your banner turned out really cute. I would love it if you would share it on my linky party Dare to Share. I have a party blog and I am always looking for party ideas.
