Banner for a birthday party
Materials: SKÖTSEL coaster
Description: My three year old requested a pirate themed birthday bash, but as he is only three I did not think that a lot of scull and bones were the right way to go.

Outcome – Birthday banner
I also cut up the MARIT table runner to make an up an “island”, using the DITTE fabric as the “sea”. REKO glasses were decorated with tabe
