A Festive Banner To Ring In The New Year

It is time to bring in the New Year. Why don’t we do so with a fun arc craft project? Whether you’re planning on having a big party or just staying in with a glass of champagne, you can’t go wrong with a New Year’s banner to bring in the festive spirit.

The arc carries many craft supplies and is the perfect place to start your DIY mission. The first stop to make is the textile section, where you can find many different fabric types and patterns. For my banner, I found about two yards of gold polyester with sparkles, perfect for a fun banner! The fabric cost $9.99.

The next stop I made was the craft section, where I found glitter packets for $1.99. I knew I had some spray on glue at home to use for sticking the glitter to the fabric, so I was set.

The first step is to cut out a long strip of fabric to use to hang all the other banner components on. Next cut out four large squares. I eyed mine and they turned out to be about 8 inches by 8 inches. I cut number stencils out of cardboard and used them to apply the glue and glitter. I made slits in the upper corners of the fabric panels so I could string them onto the original strip of fabric.
