Imagine my surprise when I looked at the calendar this morning and freaked out because it is already December 5th!! With Thanksgiving being late in the month it feels like I am missing time that I need before Christmas. My Personal Handy Man (hubby) already put up our pretty outside lights but I have done NOTHING inside. I have to get it done ASAP and it has to be Fast and Easy!! So I am taking the Thanksgiving Decor that I did last month and simply changing it to a different theme. You can get printables of everything that I did for FREE – the “Merry Christmas” banner and the holiday pics as well. Here is a quick tutorial, photos and the free downloads. MERRY CHRISTMAS! (HURRY! GO!)
I went online and made my own letters and pictures. I measured them ,saved them to pdf format for you and then I got everything printed out . . .
Cut everything out! Don’t forget to cut out whatever paper you are going to use for the banners too. I used squares of red construction paper from the kids art cupboard but scrapbooking paper would look really pretty.
The banner letters are about 3 inches across. The decor pics are 5 x 7 and if you made the Thanksgiving printables from last month you can just swap them out! (I am using cheap-o frames but I plan to get some pretty ones soon!)
Now for the banners! You can use your craftiness to make them any way you like. I prefer a vintage touch to things so I used an ink pad to darken the edges of the papers to give it an aged effect.
Glue everything together. . .
I just taped up the banners on the string that was already there.
I added a few decorations that I bring out every year. And Ta Da! My home decor is complete. (For this area anyway). Fast and Easy!
If you make one of these please share it on my facebook page so I can see your Crafty Christmas Creations!

Thank you for the awesome banner and printables! I can’t wait to make good use of them. You’re very creative.
This looks so festive! I need to help my kids make something like this too! Beautiful!
Thank you Amy! You are super sweet. Enjoy your holiday!
Not as festive as the candy advent tree I saw on your blog Sharon! (thank you)
That Christmsa banner is gorgeous. I would have never guessed it would have been so easy to make.
These are some great ideas! For several years I have been so lazy and haven’t been very creative with my craftsy decor, but you’ve inspired me!
I LOVE this Jen!!!
Thanks so much for this, I can print stuff out, and the kids can cut it out 😀 anything to keep them busy 😀

So pretty! I love those! I need to get ready for the holidays too! I’ve been a bit distracted with the home renovations. =(
Thanks for the printables! That is such a great looking Christmas banner. My stuff is still in a box. I need to hurry!
I’ll bet the little extra special touches like this make your home festive. Nice job!
