How to Make a Banner for a Baby Shower

It’s pretty simple to make baby shower garland at home. If you want to DIY a custom banner for a baby shower, follow these steps!

1. Gather Your Supplies

Start by gathering your supplies. You will need construction paper, glue, ribbon or string, printed or sticker letters, scissors, and a hole punch.

You can use any color of construction paper that you would like. The amount of construction paper and letters needed will depend on the wording you choose for your banner.

2. Cut Construction Paper Into Triangles

For this particular banner, focus on a triangle shape for the banner pieces. If you wish to use a different shape, like a pennant, feel free to cut your construction paper into another shape.

Cut your construction paper into triangles. Make one triangle first and then use that as the template, so all of your pieces are the same size.

3. Use A Hole Punch To Add Holes

Add two holes to either side of the top of the triangle using a hole punch.

4. Add Your Lettering

Add your letters to each triangle piece. You can either use a sticker and stick the sticker on the construction paper or use glue to glue a letter on.

5. String The Triangles On The Ribbon/String

Now, put it all together by stringing the triangle cutouts with the letters onto the ribbon or string! If you use a longer phrase or wording, you could consider using two pieces of ribbon or string, so the banner isn’t too long. You now have a baby shower party banner!

Pro Tip: You can also experiment with layering different materials, such as burlap or kraft paper, on top of the construction paper before adding letters for a different look! You could also add tassels or other shapes/images to give your banner more of a festive look.
