Simple DIY | Free Printable Alphabet Banner #1

January 12, 2016

I am thrilled to be sharing the very first of our monthly DIY Printable Alphabet Banners for 2016! Custom banners of all shapes and sizes reading sentiments from “Save the Date” all the way to “Thank You” are a big part of wedding decor for good reason – they are adorable! So once a month I’ve decided to design free printable letters, numbers and symbols so y’all can get creative and make something special that will also be incredibly inexpensive. Each one will have a different shape, font and color to appeal to all our wonderful readers. Whether you need to make a banner for your engagement party that reads “#ido” or your bridesmaids want to make a banner for your getaway car that reads “just married”… the choice is up to you and it’s pretty much endless. Heck, you could even use these letters to make a banner for a baby shower or birthday party. Having every single letter and number means the creativity is truly in your hands! Don’t forget to share your creations with us on Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #SomethingTurquoiseDIY as I love to regram my favorites!

Ribbon Trick:

Tie really pretty bows separate from the ribbon your letters hang on. Tape your banner up and then add the pretty bows to it, that way they look perfect!

Banner Spacing Trick:

To keep the spacing perfect along your banner ribbon, simply tape the ribbon to the back of each letter – that way the letters won’t shift or move!
