Speaking of my son, we did a little rearranging and some light decorating in his bedroom. He doesn't have a headboard yet, and I really felt like the wall that his bed was up against was really needing something in the mean time. I whipped up an easy and affordable banner to add some color and pattern to the space. My guess is the project cost... oh, probably around $6-$8.
I just used scrapbook paper and twine (which I already had). I figured the paper would be an easy way to incorporate trendy patterns, like the chevron along with some more kid friendly options, like the dinosaurs (which he REALLY loved). I basically just cut the scrapbook paper into pennant/triangle shapes the size that I wanted, trying to keep them all about the same size. I used the same template on all of them.
Then, I used a hole punch to make two holes near the edge of the paper.
And then I treaded the twine through just like in the picture. I did each one the same way, that way if I decided that they needed to be more stationary, I could go back and tape the twine to the paper on the back side. I ended up not needing to do this though, but better safe than sorry!
It was a pretty pain-free craft project! I found some teeny tiny nails in our garage to hang it up with. One on each edge and then one right in the middle.
Easy & affordable decorating for a kid's room, I'd say! Now about that headboard project... still thinking on that one. Stay tuned!
