Dinosaur Birthday Banner

It's all about dinosaurs at my house right now. We have a grandchild's birthday coming up and what could be cuter than this dinosaur birthday banner? Because I have so many projects I want to complete before the big day, I took advantage of a few ready-made pieces to bring this banner together quickly - including Joy iron-on embroidered letters.

  • Joy Letters 
  • Chipboard banner set
  • Wood dinosaur and palm tree pieces
  • Paints
  • adhesives, ribbons, paintbrushes, hot glue gun/sticks

I painted each chipboard piece in the background color, then added some gold highlights to each one. When dry, I used a white paint pen to add a few details.  You can certainly iron the letters onto the chipboard (I have done that before) but for the sake of speed, I used doubled-sided tape to attach the letters. Use hot glue to attach the wood pieces to the banner sections on the ends.

Run a long ribbon through each of the chipboard pieces along with some smaller pieces of ribbon between each banner section. Done and ready to party!

You can find Joy embroidered iron-on numbers and letters in a variety of fonts, colors and sizes at your local craft store.
