I'm making personalized banners for both birthdays. It's a really easy and inexpensive way to make individual decorations. All it takes is decorative paper, a circle cutter, glue stick, hole punch, glitter paint and string.
First, cut out two different sizes of paper circles in different colors. I use a circle cutter, but you could also use items in your home to trace circles and then cut out with scissors.
Glue the smaller circles onto the larger circles with a glue stick.
Write one letter of your message in the center of each circle with glitter paint.
With a hole punch, put one hole at the top of each circle. String them onto a sturdy string, adding a knot at the top of each circle to keep them equally spaced.
