Miss to Mrs Banner for Bridal Shower Decoration
This summer I had the honor of hosting a bridal shower for my sweet niece (see the fab invites for her Bridal Shower Tea here). Right about the time I was preparing, I became a Cricut ambassador and received the Cricut Explore Air. I knew right away it was going to get put to use for fun bridal shower decorations. So here is my very first Cricut project!
How to Make Miss to Mrs Banner for Bridal Shower Decoration with Cricut Letters
I have seen these cute “Miss to Mrs” banners on Pinterest and knew it would be a great DIY project. So here are the supplies to make this banner:
- cream colored denim-like twill
- twine or hemp cord
- Cricut black glitter iron on paper
- (optional letter stickers)
First you will need to determine how many banner shapes to cut. I decided to go with just putting hearts to separate the word “to”. Some versions I have seen also add an icon/image before Miss and after Mrs.
I cut my burlap in a 5.5×7 rectangle. Next I created a pennant shape for the top cream piece but cutting it 5×7 and then cutting away the sides. I used a square card as my guide for cutting the pennant shape. I liked how just a bit of the burlap showed through.
Then I chose to use hemp string to attach the pieces. I took a large eyed needle and literally just sewed the pieces together, leaving slack on both ends to tie it up.
This is the perfect project for Cricut iron on paper. For the letters, it is best to find a font that is thick. In my opinion, they stand out better. I picked the Cricut access font: Cricut Classic Chunky. For Cricut newbies- just remember before you start the cut, to check the “mirror for iron on” box (yep- I missed that the first time through).
Finally, it’s as easy as ironing on the letters! If you don’t have a Cricut machine, you could use sticker letters (they just won’t be as permanent).
Voila- the banner was a major hit! (want to see it “LIVE”?, check out the video here.)
AND I swapped out the “ISS” for an “R”, and added an “&” to reuse the banner (MRS & MR) on their head table for the reception. Boom- two event decorations in one!
