Easy Onesies Baby Shower Banner

Onesies Banner Header

Hi Crafters! It’s Erin, back this month from The Blue Eyed Dove. And this month I have a little confession to make…when it comes to parties I am obsessed with making easy banners.

{Not convinced? Check out some of my banners here, here and here.}

Last week I helped decorate for a baby shower, well let me rephrase that…a baby boy shower. In case you haven’t noticed when it comes to searching for something acceptable to use for a baby boy shower the scrapbook paper selection is sorta limited. I went to two different craft stores in search of the perfect paper and only came up with two coordinating selections. Two…that’s it. Thank goodness my creative juices started flowing and I decided to go with a solid piece of scrapbook paper and make up something of my own for the third piece.

Let me just preface this tutorial now by saying I love the way this banner turned out! Now, onto how everything came together…

Supplies:

  • 5 Card Board Onesies Cut-outs (found at Michaels)
  • 3 different colors of Scrapbook Paper (two patterned, and one solid)
  • Ribbon
  • Clothes Pins
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Glue Stick
  • Ruler

Directions:

Onesie Banner How-To

Tip: If you would flip over my baby boy onesies banner you would see a baby girl onesies banner. Which means I have used my banner before, and can continue to use it for showers over and over again 🙂 I would recommend doing the same thing. Save that banner! The cardboard cut-outs help it keep it’s shape nicely.

  1. Trace the onesies cut-out onto the scrapbook paper, then cut out each pattern.
  2. Use your glue stick to secure the scrapbook paper to the cardboard onesies cut-outs.
  3. Choose one of the patterned scrapbook colors to make your bow tie.
  4. Cut out 2 two inch triangles, and one small circle to make your bow tie. Use the glue stick to make the bow tie and secure on the solid-colored onesie.
  5. Lastly, use the same patterned scrapbook paper to make three small buttons to attach to the solid-colored onesie.

Then attach each onesie to the ribbon with a clothespin.

Baby boy showers can be just as cute as baby girl showers after all, even if you don’t have a ton of scrapbook paper to choose from. Just get a little creative.

Like adding a bow tie to a scary looking bear creative 😉

{It does make him look less scary, right?}

I’ll be sharing some more of the party décor from this baby boy shower on my blog next week. Stay tuned!

Have a great September!
