A word banner is a very simple craft that makes the room look put together. First you must decide a word that you would like to display in the room. Then, create or trace a shape and cut out several, make sure you have enough so that each cutout has only one letter.  Write one letter on each piece of paper, and punch two holes in top corners of the cutout shape. String the letters in the correct order and make sure they are all equally spaced. Finally, tape the string of the letters to a wall or mantle, and enjoy your word banner!
