This DIY Party Banner is something I made before our daughter left for Spain last week. I put it up before the “family dinner” when we had our in-town family over to send her off the week she was leaving. I think it might have to stay up until she comes home.

To make this, I started by choosing festive colors of felt. I decided on the words to use, then I cut three felt squares into triangles, one for each word. The words mean “Go with God.” I read that in Spain, this is something you might hear from a priest in church, but I thought it was an appropriate message from us, too. Next I cut letters out of felt, sewed them onto the triangles, then sewed the triangles to a blue ribbon. I tied the ribbon to our curtain rod. It was a very simple and quick project and could be customized for any party.

I also updated the wall art in our house that I change every now and then. I keep the same red polka dot background and create art with felt. Buen viaje means bon voyage in Spanish. For this, I cut the letters out of felt and sewed them onto the rectangle shaped piece of felt. I used spray tack so it just sticks to the red polka dot fabric. I peel it off when I’m ready to change it out.
