You Can Accomplish This Before Your Effing Head Explodes: Holiday Banner

Sometimes we all need a little reminder, come the holidays, of what the eff it is we are supposed to be doing or feeling. . .

And let’s face it, we can’t all be swilling egg nog for breakfast.  Jesus.  Some of us have car-pool for cryin’ out loud!

In case you need a reminder, do this. . .in a hurry!

1.  Find something appropriately sized and round to trace circles on to card stock or scrapbook paper or paper bags or magazine pages – whatever works with your decor and budget.

2.  Trace, cut, repeat.

3.  Use a stencil and pencil to trace letters onto the cut-out circles.

4.  Paint the letters.  Or outline them with a marker. . .or color them. . .the options are endless.

5.  Use tape to attach the stenciled circles to twine, ribbon, etc. – whatever works with your holiday cheer.  Hang everywhere.  Smile.

Be Merry and Bright because I said so Damnit!   

It took maybe 20 minutes to complete the entire project.

This would be a fun thing to do with children that are learning to write and spell. . .offer them a table-full of pre-stenciled paper disks and have them decorate them accordingly for their rooms, for Grandparents’ gifts, etc.  Add photos.  Add felt.  Make the circles smaller for a banner for the tree. . .for the window. . .for the dog. . .

      Happy to share! I’m thinking about doing one for our window that says “Glad Tidings” since I think I’m putting our tree elsewhere this year. We’ll see. 🙂 Happy Holidays.
