Sometimes it’s the small simple crafts that can bring you the most joy.  Yesterday afternoon, I put this little Today Be Happy banner together in under an hour and I’m completely smitten.

What supplies do I need to make a Be Happy banner?

Ribbon Embellishments
Gold Foil Paint Pen
Peach Paper Straw
White Felt
Scrapbook Paper
Hot Glue Gun

How do I make a Be Happy banner?

My first step was cutting to size and gluing down the different ribbon embellishments with a hot glue gun.  I also used my gold foil paint pen to add some polka dots down the side.

Next, I folded the canvas over a peach striped paper straw and hot glued the canvas down to itself.  I used the straw instead of dowel rod.  I liked the color it added.

I cut down some scrapbook paper to size and wrote “BE HAPPY” on it.  Then, that was glued down.

Last, I cut some white felt and made a little flower for a fun final touch.

Be happy banner,

I have plans to hang this little beauty in my soon-to-be updated office + guest room.  I guess I need to stop doing cute wall decor and start actually working on the actual office + guest room, ha!

  1. This is one of most precious banners I’ve seen, the simplicity makes it perfect. Would be cute to make others with simple sayings on them. Just change up for each one with ribbons, etc to match. Such a great idea and post. You have inspired me, I have to print this out, would be good quick projects to make watching tv. I don’t really watch that much as i can’t hear what’s being said but like to watch with hubs. Great way to use up some smaller pieces of papers and trims. Glad you shared this. Happy week

  2. So cute! I love the mix of patterns and colors – interesting and eye-catching, but not overwhelming. And that felt rose is absolutely adorable! I’m dreaming of making a little rosette bouquet now 😉
