Back to School Welcome Banner

Back-to-school time is here and I have created this welcome banner so my crafty teacher friends can bring their students back to class in style! This banner went together in just under an hour, so it's quick and easy to create in an evening or afternoon. Change up the message to spell the teacher’s or school's name (and colors). The possibilities are endless!

  • JOY Embroidered Letters
  • 9” x 12” sheets of Kunin Eco-Fi Classicfelt in Black (pencil lead), Gray (metal band), Sandstone (pencil tip), Candy Pink (eraser) and Gold (barrel)
  • Craft glue
  • Glitter glue
  • Cardstock
  • Ruler, pencils, scissors
  • 4-foot length of ribbon

  1. Draw a simple pencil pattern (5 pieces as shown) on cardstock and cut out.  
  2. Trace and trim each pattern piece seven times on the appropriate color of felt.
  3. Glue the pencil pieces together, overlapping as shown and let dry.

4. Peel back liner paper from the JOY letters and attach to the center of each pencil, spelling out WELCOME.

 5.  Glue each pencil along the ribbon, leaving 12” at each end and 1” in between each pencil. Let dry.

7. Accent the band with lines and circles of silver glitter glue. Let dry.
