Simple Christmas Banner


From this phone picture, the banner doesn't look like much, but I felt the idea was worth sharing.  The four year old boy I'm babysitting is very much into Christmas decorating right now, so I thought a paper banner would be really fun.  I made a diamond template and traced it onto about 16 sheets of plain copy paper (which is what I had on hand at the time).  We colored the diamonds, I cut them out, folded them in half to make the triangles, and then we glued them around some red yarn!  Voila!  We strung them up in a large picture window, so the designs could be admired from inside and outside the house.
