DIY Soccer Banner and a *GIVEAWAY*

Standard

It’s soccer season around here, and let me tell you, people go ALL OUT.  I love being a soccer mom, but not a big fan of all the costs involved.  In our league, each team is required to pitch in to purchase a team banner which usually runs about $300.  Too expensive!  This year, I offered to make our Bumble Bee banner and Expressions Vinyl was kind enough to donate the supplies.   I also have an awesome giveaway from Expressions Vinyl, more on that at the bottom of the post.

We are the Bumble Bees, a very fun theme.  The blue background piece is heavy vinyl like the type you’d use for table cloths, purchased at a fabric store.  The frame is made from PVC pipe and breaks down easily to carry.  Everything rolls up together and is easy to transport.

The design is all outdoor vinyl and the shapes are all purchased from the Silhouette Online Store.
