U Rock Birthday Banner

My little niece turns 11 this year, and my sister wanted me to help come up with a cool, themed party for her. I decided to go with a rockstar theme. Madison loves to sing and dance, and one of the focal points of the party will be a Wii karaoke game for the girls to play.
I'm going to be using a mostly hot pink and black color scheme.
This is the first completed project for her party: a felt birthday banner. There are a million tutorials on the project, but I ended up using the basic template from Pick Up Some Creativity. After fussing with cutting the letters out for what seemed like forever, and then deciding I didn't like the way the turned out, I opted for sticky felt letters from Hobby Lobby. Much faster, and frankly more legible than the ones I had made.

I love planning birthday parties.


  1. What an awesome birthday banner!

  3. LOVE it and the colors!!! I gotta make this for my girls to have for each birthday.
