After all the letters were outlined and filled in, I was basically done. I didn't have to do much with the "happy" part except scoot the letters closer together and cut off the excess string. The "birthday" part was a little trickier. I had "birth" and "day" that needed to be strung together. I figured out placement for "birth" and "day" on the strings, cut off a large amount of excess, and then tied a tiny square knot at the ends to join them together. The knot didn't easily go through the opening at the top. But I used the tip of my scissors to help open the end of it, and then the knot easily went through. I don't have a picture of that process, so I hope my explanation made sense.
Then it was just a matter of hanging up the banner. Because of the wall that I used, it was hard to get any kind of angle except straight on.
Here's the Looped Burlap Ribbon Birthday Wreath that coordinates with the banner. Cute together, right?
