DIY "Merry Christmas" banner

Christmas spirit is in full force over in my apartment!

I usually try really hard to wait until after Remembrance Day to start decorating because Remembrance Day is a is a special day for my family, and we like to fully honour it. 

But now it's onto Christmas in my apartment and I love everything that comes with it. The music, the decorating, the baking, giving back, and especially CRAFTING!

I decided I really wanted a "Merry Christmas" banner for my apartment this year and I searched high and low for one and couldn't quite find exactly what I was looking for. So, I thought to myself, why not make your own?

I talked to my friend Lindsay (@modernmommy_ on Instagram, if you're in the Winnipeg area you need to check her out for any personalized clothing, glassware, ornaments, etc) and she was able to cut the letters for me. If you don't have a service like this accessible to you, you just need iron on letters!

I found the burlap banner pieces at Michaels (on sale I might add, if you aren't on Michael's email list, JOIN IT, they're always sending out 50% off coupons and have TONS of amazing items!) and they actually came with the string as well!

i just ironed the letters on, I would recommend ironing for a solid two minutes on a high heat to make sure they fully stick and then peel back the plastic very slowly to make sure you don't mess up the letters. Let cool, cut tiny holes into the burlap pieces, string together, and done!

That's. It. It was seriously that easy. I plan to do a couple more DIY's this season and hope to share them here! I know this is a brief post but I felt the need to share this quick and easy DIY for the holiday season that was not only simple to make, but saved me money on a costly banner anywhere else!
