Communion banners ideas and steps

Communion Banners are due Wednesday, May 3rd. 


Here is a list of ideas to put on First Communion banners
  • Your Name

  The Date of your First Holy Communion
  Grapes, wheat, chalice
  Crosses
  Lamb
  Church
  Stained glass window
  Hearts
  Hosts
  Dove
  Monstrance
·      Rosary

  Materials Needed to Make a First Communion Banner:

  Big piece of felt or other fabric for background
  Wooden dowel
  String
  Glue
  Assorted colors of felt (the stiff kind works best)
  Sharp Scissors
  Glitter glue or Fabric paint and craft jewels (optional)

 1. Start by having you child sketch out what they want their first communion banner to look like. Let them design the first communion banner themselves- it will be more special to them that way! Some different symbols you can suggest for their first communion banner could include a chalice, dove, host, monstrance, lamb, grapes, wheat, cross, angel, bible, Jesus fish, or even a rainbow. Don’t forget to leave room for your name and possibly the date.

 2. When they’re ready, have them cut their symbol pieces out of felt. Stiff felt was easier to work with than the floppy kind.

3. Have them keep arranging their pieces and designing their first communion banner until everything is where they want it. Then they can glue the pieces down. You can either make an attempt to cut the letters of your child’s name out of felt, or you can look for pre-cut felt letters at your craft store. You can even buy iron-on letters. You could also just use your fabric paint to write on the name and date, which would be a lot easier than cutting the letters out.

4. Once the felt pieces are all down, your child can embellish their first communion banner with glitter glue and fabric paint or even fake jewels! The possibilities are endless, so be creative!

5. When your child is finished decorating the front of their banner, let it all dry before moving on. Now you need to be able to put the dowel through the back so it can hang up.

 6. Tie on your string to your dowel and you’re all finished!

 What do you do with a first communion banner? Well, it’s displayed at the first communion mass. We will hang them off the sides of the pews.
