I once lived the life of a wedding planner. Behind the magic love moments and tearjerker speeches, there were beautifully curated details that made the whole celebration come to life. From the invites to the bouquet, every piece was meaningfully designed. When we launched our five newest DIY kits at Target, I had to channel my roots and create a “kiteration” on our Design A Banner kit to make some bride and groom chair adornments!
Make these for your own celebration or gift them as a wedding gift!
● 2 10×20-inch felt banners
● 2 sticky back felt letters
● 4 sticky back felt emojis
● 2 wood dowels
Additional Materials and Tools:
● hot glue gun
● fabric scissors
● 2 ⅔ yards cut pieces of lace fabric
Each kit comes with a handy dandy and simple instruction packet, but follow below to see how I spiced it up for some super cute wedding reception chair swag.
Lay one banner on top of your cut fabric. Use this banner as a placeholder to cut your fabric a half inch above the top of your banner.
Glue across the white felt strip of your banner and fold your cut fabric so that it adheres to the banner. Next, dab some hot glue on the front side of the tip of your banner and press onto your fabric. Once your top and bottom fabrics are in place, carefully cut along the edges of your banner.
Once cut, flip over your banner and your fabric should line up! Lay out your letters so that you have the desired spacing in place and take off the sticker backing one by one. Press the letters down firmly on top of the fabric-covered banner.
Take your dowel and string through the white seam. Make sure the dowel is evenly distributed on either side of the banner. Repeat these steps with your second banner!
Ta-da! You’ve completed a super simple kiteration with our Design a Banner Kit!
I used fishing line to fasten the banners to the back of the wedding couple’s chairs and used another string of fishing line to string a few flowers for some added flair.
