Recreate project- large word banners

I spotted these banners from Loro’s incredible wedding and I knew I had to share them. They are an easy project to recreate and give the most wonderfully drastic visual effect.

I can imagine them lining the room at just about any celebration. Wouldn’t they be great with old-fashioned holiday song lyrics for a Christmas party?

To recreate: Use a large sheet. Print out the letters you would like from a computer, using varying sizes and fonts. Place the printed letters behind your sheet and trace the outline with a pencil. Fill in the outline with a fabric pen, shading throughout different areas to recreate this look. You could use any color but I absolutely adore the vintage look of black ink offsetting a white sheet.
