Here is a closer look at the mason jar lid banner. I will probably re-use this for other parties since I can just erase the chalk and write whatever I want to. This banner is double sided. For each letter, I hot glued two lids together with two pieces of lace in between them . The lace allowed me to tie the lids to the piece of twine.
I also made a bunch of tissue paper poms. I love these because they are so bright and colourful and super easy/cheap to make. I made the second banner out of burlap. I hot glued each piece to a string of twine. I wrote each letter on with sharpie but found that you couldn't read it when the light from the window came through. I went over the sharpie with some black paint and that made it a lot more readable.
