3-D Party Banner DIY Tutorial

Make it your goal to celebrate your accomplishments – even the “small” wins. Celebrate your work promotion AND finally perfecting a recipe. Celebrations do not have to be extravagant undertakings. Simply do whatever brings you joy! That may mean watching your favorite TV show with a glass of wine, getting a mani-pedi, or crafting a dazzling piece of home décor. Life is more fulfilling when it’s celebrated. 

Today’s DIY offers a literal way to celebrate as I show you how to create a 3-D Party Banner. This project combines the results of my letter banner and confetti tutorials. Keep reading for instructions!

How To Make A 3-D Party Banner


  • A letter banner*
  • Confetti 
  • String
  • Hot glue gun and sticks
  • Scissors 
  • Patience

*Important note: The letter banner can be made by hand or with a cutting machine. You must use cardstock paper that is at least 110 lb. to hold the confetti’s weight. 


1 – Lay the unthreaded letter banner on a flat surface. 

2 – Apply hot glue to a small portion of one letter.

3 – Grab a pinch of confetti and gently scrunch it into the glue. Watch your fingers! 

4 – Continue steps 2 & 3 until the entire letter is covered in confetti. 

5 – Shake off excess confetti and fill in blank spots.

6 – Trim confetti from the sides and top of the letter to reveal its shape. 

7 – Repeat steps 2-6 with the remaining letters.

8 – Cut a piece of string long enough to hang all your letters. Lay the letters out in order and flip them up to reveal the back. Squeeze a dime-sized dot of hot glue onto the bottom, center portion of the first letter. Press the string into the glue and allow time for drying. Repeat this process with the other letters.

9 – Now decorate and celebrate!
