DIY | Christmas letter banner

This is one of my favorite DIYs I’ve ever put together – using only ribbon from the Hagerstown ribbon factory, metallic gold pipe cleaners and neon pink duct tape.  


I simply formed the letters by cutting, twisting and bending the pipe cleaners.  Then I cut strips of the neon pink duct tape and taped the letters to the ribbon.  And voila – the banner is done!  (I also put the banner together using a hot glue gun and took some pictures without the duct tape strips – for a cleaner look.  It’s up to you!)  What I love about this banner: it’s no where near as time consuming as this cut-out letter banner.


What do you think?  Would you make this banner for your Christmas decorations?

Also, I’ve been redecorating my room the past few weeks, and was lucky enough to pick up this fantastic vintage globe for $4.  It’s a focal point in my room now, and I wanted to somehow incorporate it into my Christmas decorations.  What better way than to use it as the “world” in my “JOY TO THE WORLD” Christmas banner?

You know what I love most about this awesome globe?  It’s from 1954, and Russia is labeled “Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.”  Cool, huh?

till tomorrow,

Rebecca

P.S. Niina – what do you think?  🙂

    Love this DIY! We used twisted pipe cleaners to spell out names on presents in lieu of gift tags last year. Anyway you use them the metallic ones look great!

    the globe wakes me up to realize what 'joy to the world' is all about – that every nation has reason to sing praise over Jesus's birth. Too many times of singing the carol over and over dulled me. thanks for bringing it back to life 🙂

    I just came across those sparkly pipe cleaners and knew I needed them for something. Great idea!

  11. Niina - It seems pretty obvious.

    Finally! 😀 I LOVE it, of course! And I'm a bit jealous. I need to find one myself! And like you said the fact that it's from the former Soviet kind of make is extra cool 🙂

    And by the way; I'm loving you DIY too!
