Craft Show Banner

As I mentioned in a previous post, I did the First Christian Church Arts and Crafts show this past weekend.   Well, when I was getting my stuff ready to go, I realized my booth sign that I've been using for awhile (and is totally homemade out of foam board) specifically stated that I sell unique jewelry.  And while I did plan to have a few pieces of my jewelry there, my main focus was my aprons, hair accessories and the little wooden initial pendants that I only make for craft shows.

So I made me a new sign.  I wanted to make a bunting but didn't have the time to make a real fabric one.  So, I used foam board (I recycled my old sign!), scrapbook paper that I already had and letters that I printed off a free site on the internet.

I mod podged the scrapbook paper to the foam board and then glued the letters on.  We clothespinned all the triangles to a jute string and pinned it to the table.  I think it came out pretty good.

Although, it did confuse some of the customers who thought I was selling it by the letter.  I think I probably should have made the triangles smaller.

Ironically, the church always has a bake sale table at the show and they were also selling buntings made out of construction paper by the little kids Sunday school class.  They were very cute.  And I want to say kudos to whoever made the cheesecake brownies that my son bought at the bake sale.  He ate them all so they must have been good. :)  It was the first time he stayed with me through a whole show.  It was nice having him there.


  1. Thank you SO much for this post! I've been trying to come up with something cute and not too expensive (and easy, because I can sew, but I need practice!) to use as a banner. You've inspired me to try something similar, maybe with big circles.....hmmmmmmm. Again, THANKS!


Thanks so much for reading my blog and leaving a comment. I read every comment and try to reply to most of them although it may take me a couple of days - I'm a bit slow.
