Using What You've Got Means Free: A Quick and Easy Christmas Banner

Print out the letters of your {appropriate} word of choice onto card stock.
Cut each letter into a square and then mess them up a bit so they don't look brand new.
I used ink, but a little brown eye shadow works too...
Punch some holes. In the paper, that is. Grab some twine, yarn, or one of those 50 cent rolls of basic ribbon that you rarely use and thread it through. Then prepare to hear children sing your praises and say the house "looks like we're going to have a party." Who's bringing the cake?

  5. Love.it. I'd bring cake, but I would probably eat it all during the trip from VA to TX, then there'd just be crumbs, and that wouldn't be much of a party.
