Holiday Vertical BannerPosted on Nov 20, 2018 11:00:00 AM by Grace Tolman
When I think about banners, I usually think of horizontal ones. But sometimes, a vertical banner works best for dressing up a hallway or a skinny wall during the holiday season. This project was super easy to put together and the embellishments won’t fall off, thanks to Advanced Strength Dots.
Made by: Grace Tolman
Time: Approx. 40 minutes (Including paint drying time.)
Level: Quick and Easy
Size: 19” x 3 ½” x ½”
- Advanced Strength Dots™
- Paint Brush
- Wood circles- 3.25” circles
- Glittered ornament shapes
- Paint- DecoArt Americana - Cotton ball
Paint one side and the edges of the wood pieces with white paint. Set aside to dry.
While the wood shapes are drying, start planning how you want to arrange the glittered ornament shapes on top of each other. Mount them together using the Advanced Strength Glue Dots. Once the wood circles are dried, adhere the now stacked and glued glittered ornament shapes on top of each one with the same Glue Dots.
Add buttons. Thread some of the buttons with white twine before adhering them with more Advanced Strength Dots.
Add word stickers.
Cut a length of the ribbon long enough to create your vertical banner (about 21”).
Fold 1” of the ribbon on the top and secure the end of it onto the back of the ribbon using Advanced Strength Dots. This will give the top a finished look, while creating a hanging loop.
Adhere your assembled circle pieces onto the ribbon with more Advanced Strength Dots. Ensure that there is an even spacing between each circle.
Cut the bottom of a ribbon into a notch.
Wrap more white twine on the top of the banner and tie into a bow to add finishing touch.

I’m a mom to a 10 year old boy and an 8 year old girl. Therefore my life is usually filled with learning, new discovery, bribery and driving to and from all of our activities. I have a loving and very supportive husband of 11 years. When the kids have gone to bed at night, my time is spent crafting while catching up on my favorite shows and movies. I also enjoy reading, window shopping, knitting and perusing blogs for inspirations. Three years ago we moved to Colorado from California and we are enjoying our new environment. I feel very inspired with my new home, my new scrapbook space and the mountain views. Although I’ve been doing some type of scrapbooking since grade school, I only started to scrapbook seriously after my son was born. When he was born I knew I would be staying at home with him but coming from a fast paced sales job I was afraid I would ran out of things to do during the day. Little did I know that with newborns you won’t have any time to do anything else. Anyways, after going through a basic scrapbooking class I was hooked and haven’t stopped scrapping since.
