How to Make a DIY Easter Banner for Adult Sunday School
Easter is a time for rebirth and new beginnings. What better way to celebrate the risen Lord than by making your own DIY Easter banner for adult Sunday school? This banner will be sure to add some extra pizazz to your class décor and get everyone in the Easter spirit!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 2 yards of light blue fabric (preferably felt)
- 1 yard of white fabric (preferably felt)
- 1/2 yard of yellow fabric (preferably felt)
- 1/4 yard of green fabric (preferably felt)
- 1/4 yard of pink fabric (preferably felt)
- 1/4 yard of purple fabric (preferably felt)
- Hot glue gun & hot glue sticks
- Ruler or measuring tape
First, you’ll want to cut out all of your pieces. The light blue fabric will be used for the background of the banner, so you’ll want to cut that into one large rectangle. The white fabric will be used for the “He has Risen” portion of the banner, so cut that into a long strip. The yellow, green, pink, and purple fabrics will be used for the flowers, so you can cut those into however many flower shapes you’d like. Once all of your pieces are cut out, it’s time to start assembling the banner!
Begin by hot gluing the white strip onto the light blue rectangle in the center of the banner. Then, start adding your flowers around the “He rises” portion. You can do this however you’d like, but we recommend alternating between colors and staggering the heights of the flowers. Once you’re happy with how your banner looks, hot glue on any final touches and let the glue dry completely.
Hang up your beautiful DIY Easter Banner and enjoy!
Cut the Fabric into Strips
In this blog post, we’ll show you how to make a DIY Easter banner for your adult Sunday school class. This banner is simple to make and can be customized to your class’s needs.
To start, you’ll need to cut the fabric into strips. You can use any type of fabric you’d like, but we recommend using a lightweight fabric so it’s easier to work with. Once you have your strips cut, you’ll need to gather them together and tie them in a knot.
Now that you have your fabric strips tied together, it’s time to start decorating! You can use fabric markers or paint to add a message or design to your banner. If you’re not sure what to write, try something like “He rises” or “Happy Easter.”
Once you’re finished decorating, your banner is ready to hang! You can hang it on a wall or door in your classroom, or even outside to welcome everyone to your Easter celebration.
Measure and Cut the Folding Screen
Make sure you have all of your supplies gathered and within reach. You will need a measuring tape, a pencil, a piece of chalk, a stapler, a hammer, and a hot glue gun. First, you will need to measure your folding screen. To do this, you will need to measure the width and height of the screen. Once you have these measurements, you will need to mark them on the piece of chalk.
Next, you will need to cut your fabric to the appropriate size. To do this, you will need to measure and mark the fabric with the measurements you took of the screen. Once you have the fabric cut to size, you will need to staple it to the top of the screen. Be sure to pull the fabric taut as you staple it so that there are no wrinkles.
After the fabric is stapled in place, you will need to measure and cut the batting to size. The batting will go underneath the fabric and will help to give the banner a nice, full look. Once you have the batting cut to size, you will need to hot glue it in place. Again, be sure to pull the batting taut as you glue it so that there are no wrinkles.
Now that you have the fabric and the batting in place, you will need to measure and cut the ribbon to size. The ribbon will be used to Hang the banner on the wall. Once you have the ribbon cut to size, you will need to staple it in place. Be sure to leave enough excess ribbon at the top so that you can easily hang the banner on the wall.
Your banner is now complete! Hang it up in your Sunday school classroom and enjoy!
Fold the Folding Screen and Sew It Together
Folding screens are a great way to add privacy to a room or simply divide a space. They’re also relatively easy to make! Here’s how to make a DIY Easter banner for your adult Sunday school class.
1. Start by folding a sheet of cardstock in half. Then, cut three strips of paper that are about 2 inches wide and 12 inches long.
2. Next, take the strips of paper and glue them together at the top, making sure that the edges are aligned.
3. Once the glue is dry, fold the entire sheet in half again and crease the fold.
4. Now, cut along the fold line, making sure that you don’t cut through all the way. Leave about an inch at the top and bottom so that the two halves are still attached.
5. To finish, simply sew the two halves together along the cut line. You can use a simple straight stitch or a decorative stitch if you’d like.
Assemble and Hang the Banner
