Today I have the Simplest DIY Paper Banner to share with you.  It is so easy and involves no sewing and looks fab behind a dessert buffet, but would be amazing as a garland on the Christmas tree or even hung over a bed in a kid’s room.

The weather here in Denmark has been a bit crazy the last few days.  First we had nearly hurricane strength winds blow through the city, then came a blast of sleet, and now we are back to grey, grey, and more grey.  I think it’s affecting me because all of a sudden I have found myself momentarily ditching my normal pale and wispy longings for bright pinks, oranges, and turquoise.   It was actually a lot of fun to play with so much color all at once, but feel free to make your banner in any color you like!

Here is how to make your own:
