Never underestimate the power of a homemade banner when it comes to decorating your house! It might not sound as the most beautiful decor in the world, but when done the right way, the banner can make any room look prettier and feel more cozy.
Below you can find ten ideas on DIY banner – these are all simple, beautiful and budget – friendly home decor projects that you can do by yourself or with a friend. The most important thing is – you’ll have fun creating on your own!
1. JOY Banner
There are two important things when it comes to this project – choosing the right canvas fabric and the right word. You have plenty of choice and that will be especially helpful for you, as you can adjust the material to any room. Pick your favorite word – joy is a nice idea because the word itself is nice, but feel free to pick whatever you want!
2. Motivational Banner
We all sometimes struggle, so it’s important to have something that will remind us to stay strong and inspired. It can mean talking to a friend, reading an inspiring story, listen to encouraging podcast or it can mean something as little as a banner decoration, somewhere in your room! This banner is such an amazing combination of watercolors and calligraphy. Just choose your favorite quote and roll the sleeves up for this DIY banner.
3. Fringe Banner
Fringe banners look really cute and unique, and they are one of the best decor ideas when it comes to birthdays. It’s a fun project that leaves you with plenty of space for your creativity. For example, you can go on further decorating the banner with glitter letters. They can make an interesting contrast and thanks to being glittery, they would certainly catch everyone’s attention!
4. Statement Banner
Super easy and super cute – if this is what you want, then you hit the jackpot. For this project, you just need to find felt hearts to use for your banners, or you can just get fabric and use heart cutters to help you shaping. What you’ll also need are the following materials – black puffy paint, fishing line and sewing needle. That makes this project budget – friendly as well!
5. Pom Pom Banner
There’s something about pom poms that make them look so cute and joyful! Luckily, there are so many ways you can include them in your homemade banner. This project is fun, easy and budget – friendly. You need these materials and tools in order to make it – pom poms, felt 8X10 sheets for letters, long felt roll for banner, wooden dowel, glue and scissors.
6. No Sew Resolution Banner
New Year, new resolutions, right? Instead of writing down stuff, how about being more creative and make a resolution banner?

Think about what would you like more – adventures, love, laughter, the list is endless.
7. Fabric Quote Banner

Happy decorations are always welcomed, as they can lift us at least a little bit during hard time. For this project, you need some cereal boxes, scissors, a cutter, a ruler, some acrylic paint, a brush, a pencil, some glue and some rope.
