This sweet and simple First Communion Party Sign is a beautiful way to congratulate your little angel on her first communion! It will be a statement piece at your party and looks way more expensive than it actually is, considering the flowers are from the Dollar Store!

DIY First Communion Party Sign
I found this gorgeous linen fabric pin board at Home Goods about a year ago. I felt like it could go with so many different styles, so of course I picked it up. If you follow my blog at all, I’m sure you’re not surprised that I bought a few pin boards for future decorating and party clients…or for myself! They always have pin boards at Home Goods, so take a look if you are in the market for one!
It turns out that I NEEDED a pin board while planning my most recent first communion party. The guest of honor, a nine-year-old little girl, had chosen a party that was full of pink, white, and gold! It’s a little twist on a classic first communion party! You can see more from that party in my post, “A Pink, White, & Gold First Communion Party Vision Board.”
I wanted to reference the religious nature of the event by having a banner that read “God Bless” as a backdrop for the dessert table. I searched a few places and found the perfect pink and gold customizable alphabet banner on Etsy! The banner came with gold string, but I switched it out for twine. It felt a little more serene and appropriate for this event.
To adhere the banner to the DIY first communion party sign, I used some small white pins. I really liked the way that it looked, but it seemed a little bare. To spruce it up, I decided to add some little bunches of flowers!
I usually buy mine from Michaels or JoAnns. In fact, I just used some to create a pink and white Spring Hoop Wreath that is perfect for inside or outside! You can find out how to make that wreath HERE! Believe it or not, I found the flowers at the Dollar Tree!
I cut off the flowers from the stems and glued them together using a hot glue gun. To make them a little fuller, I added some greenery to the flowers. After that, I pinned the bunches to the sign. It added some much needed dimension! The flowers are a sweet little detail on the easiest DIY first communion party sign!
Details to DIY the First Communion Party Sign:
- Pin board (HERE, HERE, and HERE are some adorable pin boards.)
- Alphabet banner
- Faux flowers
- Wire cutters
- Glue gun and glue sticks
- Push pins
First, spell out the words you would like to create with your alphabet banner. Then, string the letters through the twine.
Measure the distance from one side of the pin board to other so that you can cut your twine to the appropriate size.
Pin your banner to the pin board using your pins.
Cut the flowers off of the stems. Using your glue gun, glue the flowers together forming a small bunch. It will look best if you group your flowers into groups of three or one.
Glue the leaves onto the back of the flower or flower bunch.
Finally, pin your flowers to the pin board in different locations!
