DIY Medieval Banner Kids Craft – great for a party activity!

DIY medieval banners make a fun craft for a themed party, a rainy day, or a medieval reenactment event. Kids and adults alike will have a great time making banners and they can choose their colors so no two banners are alike. Cricut Design Space makes it easy to change the central images as well.

Products for this tutorial were provided by Cricut, Xyron, and Glue Dots. All opinions are my own.

The current Queen of the MSR asked me to lead a craft for the kiddos at an event a while back and this banner is what I came up with. To make the banner you will need the following.

Cut out all the pieces on your Cricut. What I did was actually cut out everything in the same color and then cut it all out again in the next color and so on. This way I had every piece in every color and the kids could mix and match.

In order to keep somewhat organized, I placed each image in a different envelope. That way the kids could grab the envelope for the piece they needed, pick the color they wanted, then move on to the next envelope. It sort of worked…

Use the GlueTape to attach the flag fronts to the flag backs, taking care to line up the holes.

Run all the image front pieces through the Xyron sticker maker to turn them into stickers. Then stick the image front pieces onto the image back pieces.

As you can see, I made my banner in just 3 colors, but you can do as you wish. There are also plenty of 2 layer images in Design Space, so you can change up your center images.

Some of the kiddos, such as Kyla, went with a color theme. This required hording the correct color parts right away before someone else took them!

Plenty of other kiddos mixed and matched colors so we had a fun variety of banners hanging everywhere by the end of the event.

That’s it! Happy crafting my friends.
