These are very easy to make and can be adapted to any size depending on your needs. They’re great for bulletins board displays or to decorate your classroom.
For this quick project you’ll need craft paper, acrylic paint, a paint brush, and a black sharpie.
1- A scroll shape is like the letter S but narrow and curled in at each end. It can be drawn upright or lying down (I’ve done mine horizontally). The longer you draw the “S”, the wider your banner will be. Once you’ve drawn your “S”, draw a line parallel to your “S”, following the same curves. Make sure to provide enough space for your font to fit between the lines.
2 – Now connect the lines, curving the bottom corners. To give the impression the curled edges, draw vertical lines at each end.
3 – Write the desired font on your banner (cursive is always nice!) and then trace over your banner with a black sharpie.
4 – Paint over your banner and let dry for over an hour. Once dry, trace over your banner again with the black sharpie and cut out your banner.
Viola, you’ve got a pretty banner for your classroom. A great and thrifty tip is to laminate your banners so you can use them every year. I’ll be back with more quick classroom DIYs! Sue
