Shipping Wrapper Banner
The banner shown above is made from a shipping wrapper that was used at a local lumberyard for transporting materials. My friend asked if she could have a piece, and they were happy to give her one as they were going to throw it out anyway. You can do the same, visit your local lumberyard and ask if they have any large shipping wrappers you can take, I am sure they would be happy to get rid of them.
She then painted on the wrapper to create a one of a kind banner. You can use any paint you would like, house paint, craft paint, markers.. etc. And there you go, a home made banner that cost only pennies to make.
