An Easter Banner

Easter is just around the corner and I wanted to do a quick craft project with the boys this spring break. So we pulled together these supplies and got to work.

This is such an easy project and the most important part is to gather some cute colorful papers. I cut 8 sheets of paper into different sized strips. I then had the boys help me cut out all the letters and they really enjoyed it. 

Once you have all the letters cut out, simply add glue and layer on the paper strips. Let dry for about 20 minutes (we used this time to eat lunch). Taking our scissors again, we cut off the extra strips and were left with darling letters.

Punch 2 holes at the top of each letter and run a long piece of twine through them. So that our string didn't fray, we added an aglet (the plastic thing at the end of a shoelace) to the end of it. Just take a piece of tape and wrap it at the end. Once we had all the letters on, I had Bradley tie a hang knot at each end and we hung it up in their room. Just think how cute this could be for a birthday banner or 4th of July!
