Brighten Your Home with Banners

Banners are a huge hit for party décor, but they can also just brighten up your home so you can celebrate the everyday!

Melissa Quigley with the blog Hollyhocks & Honeybees shares the simple do-it-yourself project that will add a pop of happy to any space.

It goes without saying that I love banners! In my house I believe there is always a reason to put one up. It doesn’t have to be a big celebration, party or birthday a lot of the time they are strung up to celebrate the everyday. A couple of rules I have when draping banners around the house is first, group them together. A good rule of thumb to follow is putting together at least three. The more the better, don’t be afraid to bundle them together! Another rule I use is to mix and match styles, textures, colors and sizes of banners. Layering banners together creates visual interest that can really make a statement. Try mixing something that sparkles together with a fabric garland and tie it all together with something paper or plastic. The possibilities are endless! Using garlands and banners is a simple way to decorate and can be a show stopper for any kind of party or celebration you host. One last rule is to think outside the box. Look for inventive and creative things to use for a banner. The ways I showed today on the show are perfect examples of using things in a unconventional way. I love the modern feel of the geometric word shaped banner, the interesting yet simple paper shapes and turning charming straws into a sensational banner. Keep your eyes open for unique objects you can be transformed into a garland or banner. Remember, you don’t always have to hang them horizontally, vertically can be just as much fun and have just as much of an in pact.
