Additionally, we'll need various art supplies such as scissors, glue, double-sided tape, and decorative elements like stickers and ribbons to bring our banner to life.

Paper, Cardboard, or Fabric Options

Typically, we prefer to use sturdy cardstock or banner paper as the materials for our picture birthday banners. These DIY banner options offer several benefits.
