This Birthday Banner took about an hour to make.
I used some twine and strung up the #3 flag I had made out of Kraft Paper. Then I just started tying ribbon to the twine. I alternated lengths and tried to have a variety of thicknesses.
I already had about half of the ribbon from another project. I hung all those ribbon and then I was able to judge what other colors I needed.
I spent about $10 on new ribbon. I couldn't resist adding those fun pom-poms!
I love this project because it didn't take forever. Plus, I can reuse all the ribbon by either untying the ribbons or cutting them off the twine.
