DIY Retro-Inspired Peace Banner

Creating a banner for you home is a simple way to add holiday decor! No matter how you create your banner, it’s always going to look cute – in other words, it’s hard to mess it up!

I decided to create a retro-inspired “peace on earth” banner! We scored this amazing globe at a flea market and it’s been gracing our presence ever since! I’ve seen other DIYs like this one, so I decided to keep my letters without the center cut-outs. This creates a very abstract look, while keeping that retro vibe I’m hoping for!

All you will need is some scrap paper, scissors, twine and tape! Trace out your letters and carefully cut each one out. Take your twine and tape the letters securely, while leaving them evenly spaced out. Tie your banner to your item (in this case, a globe) and you’re done!

I am loving the use of globes and maps in our home decor! I am on the look out for a vintage pull down map to put over our bed, but good ones are hard to find (my husband and I have wanted one for some time). We found an amazing 40s world map from at a yard sale months ago – perhaps I can create a faux-pull down map using that? Hmm?

How do you feel about globes and maps as part of your decor? How do you tie it in with each holiday, if at all?
