I have a confession to make. I have a bunting problem or maybe a banner problem. Or it could be a garland problem. Honestly, it’s probably all of them. I love them. They are fun and generally easy to make and there are SO MANY KINDS. I’ve made a lot of banners, buntings and garlands over the years. We have fall themed banners and Christmas buntings and springy banners and kid themed and pom poms and, seriously. I have a problem. And now I’m going to give that problem to you! Check out all these banner and buntings. So many possibilities! You could probably have one for each room!


These big fluffy crepe paper garlands are so fun! I’m dying to string them across my daughters bedrooms in all sorts of shades of pink (of course, I’d have to take down the banners that are already there… but you know, that could be done. The more the merrier!)


These crazy paper streamer buntings are festive and would be super quick to make for a party (or just…dinner, because that could be fun!) I love all the colors and the lightness, but also the way they fill up the space and turn a plain wall into something fabulous.

Crochet Christmas Light Garland

Holidays always offer a great excuse for a new banner or bunting. This Christmas light banner would be adorable wrapped around a tree, bright lights even in the day. And the colorful felt leaves in this fall garland are beautiful, I love them!


Be sure to check out our Craft Trends Boards for more banners and buntings and send us pictures of the ones you create!

    Love these. I have made four banners for Halloween this year. I haven’t done garland. Wow – thanks for the ideas!

    Although my husband may not be as thrilled – when I was hanging the last one, he rolled his eyes and said “another?” But he did say it was best one to date. I’ve got to finish the blog post on it.
