Onesie Baby Shower Banner

This banner if stinkin' cute! If I do say so myself. My big contribution to decorations, came in the making of this banner. I was having a hard time coming up with something that I liked. I googled banners, looked at banners on etsy and was in tears last Tuesday, because nothing I did looked right. I saw some banners on onesies and so I looked up onesies templates and thought they were cute. Mandee and I were out shopping for the shower on Wednesday and I mentioned having seen cute banners using a onesie template and she said, "How cute would it be to use real onesies and make a banner?" A stroke of genius on Mandees part. She's the brains in this operation!!

So we went and bought 2 packages of onesies, which makes this banner a bit expensive. We got them a little bit cheaper by going to Ross. Mandee found the cute pink paper for the cupcake picks and we went with that for the banner. I printed up the cute BABY GIRL on the computer and cut them out. Added a flower onto each with a button and you have the cutest banner ever!! You could get really crazy with the embellishments, but we thought simple was better. Mandee covered each clothespin with ribbon to bring in some more color. What's fun about this, is the mom to be gets to take home the onesies!!! A present and a decoration all in one!

I can't find the actual website that the scallop template came from. All I can find is the link for the download, here. The flower template is found, here.

VERY cute!
I love the clothesline decoration/banner idea. I've used it for several baby showers. I love finding baby clothes on clearance (for CHEAP!) and then using for decoration AND as the gift.
Can't wait to see more baby shower posts.

Hi there! I came across your blog when I was searching for a cute banner to make for my best friend's baby shower.

I will be making this but I would like to know - how did you attach the paper to the onesie? I don't know what to do so that it can be removed easily and the onesie can be used once the baby is born.

We just used straight pins to attach them. You could use safety pins too. Good luck!
