One of the questions I get asked quite often, is "what's the best way to hang my banner?" so I thought I would break down some of the ways I've hung my personalized vinyl banners at parties I've hosted or attended as a guest!
Removable 3M Tape or A Finish Nail
Yup, sometimes I just nail the banner right into the wall with a tiny finish nail. I prefer that over a pushpin because you don't see the head of the nail and get a nice, smooth finish every time.
You can also use a removable wall mounting tape or painters tape and roll it behind the banner so you don't see it. I would not suggest regular scotch tape as the banners are pretty heavy duty and will not hold well!
I can also add grommets to the corners for free! Just remind me in the notes to seller section when you check out!
Yard Sign Display
2020 took us all by surprise and boy did we get creative! I was so honored to help reimagine thousands of birthdays into drive by celebrations with nearly 50 different personalized Honk it's my Birthday yard signs. When everything shut down, I saw yard signs displayed in the most genius ways with anything we could find from the garage!
People used string, yard stakes, pieces of lumber, poles, and zip ties and displayed their birthday banners proudly. I absolutely loved seeing the reactions of kiddos and adults alike who triumphed through quarantine and shutdowns to safely reimagine ways to celebrate!
A wall hanging
This is one of my favorite ways to dress up a vinyl banner, but it does take some pre-planning and most likely a trip to Home Depot, but even the least crafty friends can pull this off. I promise.
You can get a piece of 1"x2" wood (called a "one by two") from your local hardware store for a few bucks and they will even cut it to size for you for free. You can stain or paint it if you choose, then use a staple gun, small finish nails or even wood glue and glue the banner to the back of the wood. You can hang it with twine, rope, etc. onto a command hook or nail to fit your party theme.
If you're even handier than me (or happen to be married to a handy man like me), you can use the same 1"x2" wood to make a frame around the banner for just a few bucks. If you don't know this about me yet, I am the queen of frugal!
Poke Holes or Add Grommets
I've also gone the good ol' fashion route of poking a small hole in the banner and tying it with twine or zip ties! You can get grommets added to your banners for free (just remind me when you checkout that you'd like them) but I personally don't love the finish of the grommets in the corners, so I usually just opt to poke a hole!
