Welcome to the last day of Christmas in July!!! Not only is it our last day but it’s also our $10 & under DIY blog hop party! So I combined the two. I love globes! And I love thrift stores. So I knew this $6.99 world globe would be a perfect project if I just added a holiday garland to it.

I’ve seen a lot of people on Pinterest combining globes and chalkboards and I really do like the look of the chalkboard globes. But I just couldn’t bring myself to paint any of mine so far. So for now I’m just adding a little holiday garland to them. I’ve made “Peace on Earth” and “Joy to the World”. But right now I can’t find my “joy” so I’ll have to show that one to you at another time! Read on to see how I make them.
Supplies for this Holiday Garland
- white cardstock
- regular copy paper (for pattern OR you can use a Banner Punch Board)
- thin Sharpie
- 1/8″ hold punch
The Christmas banner is pretty simple. I just printed the words onto white cardstock and cut out the banner shapes. They’re about 2 1/2″ x 3″ with a triangle shape cut out of the bottom. I made a pattern with regular copy paper by cutting out a 2 1/2″ x 3″ rectangle then folding it in half. Then I cut a triangle out about 1″ deep.
Make sure you leave plenty of room around the words when you print it. Cut out the individual banners, draw a line freehand around the edge with a thin Sharpie, punch holes in the top corners (with a 1/8″ hole punch), then add the string.
OR, if you want an even EASIER way to make these banners, get a Banner Punch Board. Until I get a video made, watch this demonstration that shows how easy it is to use.
Couldn’t be easier! Take a look at the close up below if you’re a visual person like me.
