Graduation banner DIY

The end of the school year is fast approaching. For many families that means graduation is looming just around the corner. Whether that special someone is graduating from kindergarten or with their PhD it’s still very exciting and it means big changes are on the way. Today we have a fun tutorial for you that will add a bit of extra sparkle to your graduate’s big day.

Supplies needed include:

  • Graduating year numbers
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Ribbon
  • Hole Punch
  • Glue
  • Glitter
  • Baker’s Twine

Depending on the type of glue you are using you will want to spread it out with a paint brush. Fill in the numbers that you have with the glue and then dump the glitter on top. Hold the number you are putting glitter on over a piece of paper so you can reuse the excess glitter.

Once the glue has dried you will glue the numbers onto a piece of fun card stock. I chose a gold chevron print. Then glue that onto a solid color card stock. By the time you have the three layers of paper glued together it will be nice and sturdy. Use your ribbon to tie the corners together. This will allow it to hang nicely. Use baker’s twine on the ends so that you can cut it the length needed to hang it up.

Grab some tissue poms and hang them above the banner to add more to the festivities. Layer your homemade banner with tissue tassels in your graduate’s school colors to complete the look!


This would look great above or in front of a buffet table, as a photo backdrop, or just around the room adding to the festivities. Don’t forget to swing by Just Artifact’s website to finish off your party needs with paper straws, party plates, and of course jumbo foil number balloons!
