The best memories are made when camping! We’re sure your friends won’t want to take a hike when seeing this banner display at your camping party! Disguise the mechanics of a vertical stake with some faux grass and put a smile on those happy campers faces when they see the cutely named desserts all around.

- Kraft pennant banner
- (2) 36” wood stakes
- (2) Metal buckets
- Foam block
- Green grass tissue mat
- Map or printed map design
- Alphabet stickers
- Power drill
- Acrylic Paint
- Rocks and Sand (as weights)
Drill 2 holes onto each wood stake about 12 inches part.
Paint all sides with brown acrylic paint.
Add rocks to the bottom of the buckets then add foam blocks to snuggly fit inside.
Insert your wood stake into the foam block and fill remaining space with sand.
Cut one of the grass mats so it fits on the top of the bucket. Tip: apply gluestick around the inside rim of the bucket to help adhere the grass mat in place.
To decorate the actual banner, cut pieces of the map to cover half the banner panels. Embellish with alphabet stickers to spell the “happy campers” phrase.
Allow slack of the twine on the pennant banner and cut into two pieces. Hang “happy” through the top two holes and “Campers” through the bottom two holes.
Display your banner over your Camping Party dessert table and put a big smile on the face of each adventurer as they return from their long trek out in the woods to some treats!
