Photo Clip BannerPhoto clip banners are very popular and trendy for events like a bridal shower, baby shower, engagement, wedding, birthday, graduation, etc.

You can make cute flower accents from water bottles and hang from a string. Then using cute clothespins (clip photos), in example I attached are notecards. You can also decorate notecards too, but I used this as a photo clip banner.


Total Time: 25 minutes + drying time overnight


  • water bottles
  • X-Acto knife
  • scissors
  • ribbon
  • mini pin
  • paint + paintbrush

  1. Using your X-Acto knife, cut your water bottle (at the first line crease) as shown below.
  2. Photo Clip Banner - cut bottle with knife
    Photo Clip Banner - top section removed
  3. Cut 5 slits spacing evenly around the water bottle.

  5. Peel each flap down to achieve a petal.
  6. Photo Clip Banner - fold sections back

  7. Using scissors trim the edges of the petal to be curved and neater.

  9. With flower facing downwards, you can paint with your desired color(s). Allow to dry overnight.
  10. Photo Clip Banner - ready to paint
    Photo Clip Banner - painting yellow
    Photo Clip Banner - two tone yellow section
    Photo Clip Banner - dark pink painted petals
  11. Once your flowers are dried, you can use ribbon to secure knots from one end of the water bottle spout flower to the other water bottle spout flower.
  12. Photo Clip Banner - four painted flowers, closeup

  13. Once your banner is hung, you can attach photos and use mini clothespins to keep the photos on the ribbon. (I used notecards as an example of photos), or you can decorate the notecards.
