Here's my new Joy banner that I made today using leftover scraps of the red burlap from my wreath.
Lay freezer paper on your Cricut mat and send it through your Cricut machine.
I made a little mark with chalk where I wanted the bottom of letters to go.
Iron for a couple of minutes.
Add acrylic paint. I used white.
Let it dry. Mine was not completely dry when I removed the freezer paper.
I attached my banner to jute using glue.
I staple gunned it to my shutter.
Viola. Easy banner.
