Noel door banner DIY (click through for tutorial)         When it comes to holiday door decor, the wreath is king. I would like to suggest, however, a different category of door adornment for your front porch this year—the banner! Banners are really easy to make, and they make a big statement because of their size. Throw in a holiday phrase and you got yourself a big dose of front porch Christmas cheer! We're teaming up again with the (incredibly sweet) people over at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores to bring this simple little (big) banner project to life!

-white felt
-2 wreath hangers

-fabric glue
-foam core or cardboard

Noel door banner DIY (click through for tutorial)First you'll want to use an X-Acto knife to cut your phrase letters out of foam core or cardboard. You can either print a letter from your computer in a font and size that you like (I used Function Pro Bold) and trace it onto the foam core, or you can draw your own letter directly onto it. I made my letters around 8" tall.

The moss letters make it look like the word is still growing and that adds a fun greenery element too. What do you think? Will this be a "banner year" for your front porch? Will you make something a-door-able?? xo. Laura
