scrappy sunday 5/1-no-sew ice cream cone wrapper birthday banner

right now i’m working furiously on decorations/favors/etc. for miss harper’s “may flowers” birthday party next weekend.

my slice has gone into overdrive i think. ha!!!

here’s our dining room table right now. ACK! i have WAY too many ideas in my brain (and on my pinterest boards) and it’s causing a bit of chaos. ha!

today i wanted to share a SUPER easy no-sew birthday banner i came up with.

as most of you know, i don’t sew. at all. and learning right now would just add the icing to the stress cake. so i usually invent ways to make things without sewing.

when i saw these sweet ice cream cone wrappers at michaels, i snatched up a couple of packs right away knowing that i wanted to make a banner with them.

they are the perfect shape and colors for a birthday banner so that is what i had in mind, especially considering i have bday on the brain right now. :)

i grabbed a spool of my divine twine in aqua

a pair of scissors, and my EZ runner.

note: any dry adhesive would work nicely here. but it must be a strong one.the wrappers are very light weight, as is the twine…but i want it to last. that’s why i prefer ez runners. i’ve never had anything fall off when i use it. another great adhesive to use would be glue lines of some sort.

before i made the banner, i snipped each cone down the side seam on both sides.

try really really hard not to be jealous of my non-manicured gluey hands. they were working hard and that does not =pretty. :)

i then applied a line of adhesive directly across the top of the inside of the cone wrapper.

the rest is pretty obvious, i placed a large piece of twine across the floor and just stuck the cone wrappers on the twine.

and the end result makes me (and the birthday girl, more importantly) very happy!
