This cute little banner fit the bill perfectly. Look closely- it's made from larger paint swatch cards! I was in the hardware store waiting for my floor color to get mixed up and I saw the huge display of paint swatches and thought they were just gorgeous. In between is just a smaller paint swatch.
Even the twine was free- it was leftover from bringing home the hardboard I used to make the chalkboard. I cut the pieces and punched holes in them while Napoleon decided to put them in a "pretty pattern". Then we just threaded the twine through and hung them up. Super simple and easy peasy.

I'm seriously in love with our basement classroom. These banners just give such amazing cheer!
