Celebrate National Winnie the Pooh Day by creating this fun birthday banner! Grab the free printable banner pennants – they include all of the letters of the alphabet plus blank pages perfect for adorning with Pooh Bear stickers!
This Wednesday is National Winnie the Pooh day, so I thought it would be a fun week to share this fun birthday banner you can make using some of the cute Winnie the Pooh stickers and scrapbook embellishments available!!
The free printable includes the Happy Birthday banner with three blank banner flags where you can add cute stickers. I found so many great classic Pooh stickers and scrapbook embellishments at Joann Fabrics, which are perfect for this banner. You can also find them on Amazon, I’ll link to them at the end of this post. Below is a quick tutorial and the free printables. We’ll be watching our current favorite Pooh movie, Pooh’s Heffalump Movie, this week and reading a bit more from our Adventure’s of Winnie the Pooh book. We’re about to read the chapter in which Tigger comes to the Hundred Acre Wood and has breakfast with Pooh Bear :) Happy National Winnie the Pooh day!
Supplies Needed for DIY Birthday Banner
- Free Printables: Located at the end of this post
- Banners were created using KB Jellybean Font created by Khrys Bosland
- Yarn, ribbon or twine
- Hole punch
- Scissors or paper cutter
- Pooh Bear stickers, scrapbook embellishments, or images cut from Pooh scrapbook paper.
Creating these banners is quick and easy! First print one of the banner free printables – either the classic banner or the red and yellow banner. Cut out each pennant shape. I used a paper cutter to speed things up.
There are three blank pennants, one for the beginning and end of the banner and one for in between words “Happy” and “Birthday”. Decorate these blank pennants with anything you’d like! You can use Winnie the Pooh stickers, scrapbook embellishments etc. I have affiliate links to the stickers and embellishments I used at the end of this post.
Once your banner is decorated, punch holes in the top corners so they can be strung together. I measured out where to punch my holes on the first pennant and then used that as a template for the rest.
Tie the pennants together and your banner is complete! I used red and white bakers twine for my red and yellow banner and twine for my classic banner. Unfortunately, I didn’t get any pictures of my banner at our party. It is quite long, which worked well since it was hanging in a large entryway to our dining room. If you’d like to make it smaller, just print it a smaller scale, rather than at 100% :)
*Save PDFs to your desktop first, then print at 100% (or a smaller scale if you would like a smaller banner!)
*Banner pennants do not include any images of Winnie the Pooh. Check out the links below for cute stickers and scrapbook embellishments you can use to decorate your banner :)
** UPDATE: New letter banners! I’ve added free printable banners for lowercase letters, uppercase letters and numbers like “1st”, “2nd”, “3rd” :)
