Back to School Banner

Grab your FREE Back to School Banner Printable perfect for the first week of school!

Yesterday I shared our family’s back-to-school tradition with back-to-school dinner ideas. One of the things that makes a somewhat ordinary family dinner night feel like a party is a little decoration. I am not an over-the-top Pinterest mom unless it’s a child’s first birthday. (See the donut grow up party and Never Grow Up Peter Pan Party as proof). But for a night to celebrate the new school year, a simple back-to-school banner will do. 

Back to School Banner

I didn’t want to spend much on one. Those vinyl banners and large posters can add up quickly! I also didn’t want to spend a lot of time making one. Ultimately, I decided I could easily design one myself and print it out. After the design, it was as easy as downloading, printing with a colored printer, cutting out, and attaching to some yarn. I simply taped it up and voila, an easy and cute back-to-school banner! 

I know a lot of families like to use back-to-school banners for back-to-school dinners as we did. Several love to decorate the front porch or garage door. And if you’re a teacher, by all means, feel free to download and use it in your classroom those first days for classroom decorations!

Back to School Banner Tips 

  • If you want to increase durability, print on card stock paper. 
  • Feel free to print on the cheap at Staples if you want full-color pages without using much printer ink. 
  • Laminate the printable so you can reuse it every year
  • The edges are straight, so a paper cutter or a high-quality pair of scissors make cutting out the template easy 

And if you used it, we’d love to see it! Feel free to tag me on Instagram so we can enjoy the welcome back to school banner too!
