Christmas Crafts for Kids, Merry Christmas Banner

Easy Christmas Craft for Kids

This super easy Christmas craft for kids starts with a print and cut Christmas banner pattern.    As long as your little one can use paper scissors they can make this banner.  The Merry Christmas wording is easily recognizable for children helping them to spell it, the letters are part of the printable, and you can decorate it as fancy or as simply as you like.

This banner is simple enough for the little ones to do, and pretty enough to be inexpensive decor.  I hung my banner onto a little frame, but you can hang it from a dresser front or even over the front door.

How to Make this Easy Christmas Craft for Kids


The buffalo check pattern and the red letters are part of the Christmas banner template.  Besides the template you will need:

Cardstock, or construction paper and glue

Childproof safety scissors

A hole punch


Any decorations you like.  Some ideas are stickers, pine cones, candy canes, dollar store mini sleigh bells, paper snowflakes, or recycled Christmas cards if you have any.

The plain banner is good for any age group from kindergarten to teenager.  A young child may need help printing out the banner, but then they can have fun decorating and customizing it any way they like.

As my granddaughters are still young, this one is done with Santa stickers,  it can easily be winter sports stickers, forest animals or farmhouse animals.

Print out the banner onto cardstock.  If you don’t have cardstock you can print the banner out on plain paper and then glue it to construction paper before cutting it out.

After they banner pieces are cut, the template has marks where the holes should be, simply punch them out.

      Oh right on Barbara. Being without a printer would be more of a nuisance then having no stove. I hope it gets fixed or replaced soon for you, what a pain.

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Thank you Rachel. Doing crafts with children is so much fun. I am glad you like this one.

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Thank you. Little ones love to craft, I thought this simple banner would be something they can do and actually use for decorating.

  2. This is a cute idea to do with the little ones. Crafting together is always so much fun.

  3. I’m so enjoying all your amazing black & white buffalo check projects this holiday season, Leanna! This Christmas banner is adorable too. I love the stickers you added to some of them. Your grand’s are so lucky to have a grandma who puts so much thought and love into making their stay a comfortable and memorable one!

      Thank you Marie, I knew I wanted to try something wildly different and this rustic look certainly is a different style for me.

  4. It looks awesome on that frame and with all the little bits you added. That elfish Santa hat is so cool.
