Make a bedroom banner

We made these banners for an event at the The FMLY Store in Bruton but here’s how you make one at home!

As global young citizens, spreading positive messages is really important and your voice is important too. Imagine you’re a designer you’re going to create a super cool banner. Designers use colours, letters and pictures to help people understand things. Have a think about what you’d like to say, write something positive, some words that make you feel happy or motivated or you could write your name (you’re important remember).

Now the making part:

1 FIND SOME SCRAP PAPER, A PAPER STRAW, SOME SCISSORS, STRING, A HOLE PUNCH AND SOME GLUE (WE USE FLOUR AND WATER)

2 CUT YOUR BANNER SHAPE, PUNCH HOLES AND CUT OUT YOUR MESSAGE

3 GLUE DOWN YOUR MESSAGE AND THE STRAW

4 WE ADDED SOME PAPER FRINGING BY CUTTING SOME LITTLE STIPS AND GLUE-ING TO THE BACK

5 ADD SOME STRING

6 STAND BACK AND LOOK AT YOUR WONDERFUL CREATION - WELL DONE

We're always trying our hardest to think of the environmental impact. Our banner can be recycled as we used flour and water instead of glue and its made entirely from paper (apart from the string)!
