A quick stop to my local Paper Source on my day off turned out to be a super fun DIY project. I found these Contempo brand kraft paper letters at their store and I immediately wanted to create a fun vertical wall banner to add to my meditation corner. The materials I used are pictured below.
Materials used: super tacky double sided tape, kraft paper letters, poly brushes (2), Annie Sloane chalk paint, rhombo black graphic paper, vintage sheer gold ribbon, scissors, and a ruler.
I used chalk paint because I had left over paint from a previous DIY and the color I used for those picture frames were the same exact color. You are welcome to use spray paint for paper as well. I used two different paint colors for my letters, honestly not knowing which side I'll use, it also depended on how well the color will look with my graphic print paper used to create the vertical wall banner.
I cut a very long two inch (wide) strip of my rhombo black graphic print paper to hold my paper letters vertical. I also had some vintage sheer gold ribbon (optional) laying around my craft room which I used the super tacky double sided tape to attach the ribbon to the back of my long strip of graphic print paper.
When hanging your letters make sure there is an even amount of space within each letter to make it look uniform. Another tip, when centering letters on the vertical banner, use extra double sided tape to areas of the letters that are not held by the paper ribbon since it will add too much weight to the paper banner holder.
I decided at the last minute to interchange the colors of my letters to make it pop out more. You can make these wall vertical banners with any word/s of your choice for your corner of your home. I hope this post brings some of you a little calm inspiration.
Thank you so much for reading.
