I am counting the days until summer.
The end of school and lazier days can’t get here soon enough. Until then, I’m just pretending life’s a beach…
I’ll be sharing the details of this fun kid-friendly backyard beach party soon. But today, I’m sharing a tutorial for how to make one of the simplest beach party decorations ever.
If you can use scissors and a glue gun, you can make this fun beach towel party banner.
It’s my project for this month’s no-sew showcase with fellow bloggers Debbie from Confessions of a Plate Addict, Christy from Our Southern Home, Yvonne from StoneGable, Barb from The Everyday Home and Jennifer from Town and Country Living.
Be sure to check out their projects at the end of this post.
To make the beach towel party banner, start with a fun print beach towel. (I got mine from Walmart.)
You’ll also need a bunting template. I used just printed it out on regular computer paper.
Next, I used the pattern to cut out six flags for my party banner.
I cut along the top of the towel so I’d have one finished edge. You could add fray check to the raw edges to keep them from raveling further, but I didn’t bother since we were going to be using the banner outside.
Finally, I ran a bead of hot glue along the top of each flag and glued them to some pretty yellow grosgrain ribbon. Be sure you space them evenly.
Now all that’s left is to hang the banner and throw a party!
