DIY Weekend Banner with Stickers {Quick Planner Tip}

DIY Weekend Banner with Stickers {Quick Planner Tip}

Here’s a Quick Planner Tip for my planner friends out there who love to decorate their weekly and monthly spreads. I love getting cute weekend banner stickers on Etsy, but I also like to switch things up by making my own with various materials, like washi tape.

How to Make a DIY Weekend Banner with Stickers

Simply draw a curved line across the weekend days of your planner as pictured above. Evenly spread small stickers of choice across the line. I used tiny hearts from a sticker book I picked up at Target. Naturally, you could use any small sticker, like circles, stars, etc. To make the spacing pretty even, I placed the center heart first and spread the others out from there.

I just added five stickers to be decorative, but I could have added enough to spell out “weekend”. Of course, you can spell out any word of choice or make a non-weekend banner, too. You could do one for a special event, holiday, etc. Use a fine-tip permanent marker to write a letter on each sticker or place a letter sticker on top of your shape sticker.

Have fun making your DIY Weekend Banner with Stickers. The possibilities are truly endless!

Spiced Cauliflower and Chickpea Soup Recipe

For me, soup is a year-round fave. But, there are some cold winter days when it just seems extra appealing. I enjoyed cozying up with this Spiced Cauliflower and Chickpea Soup Recipe, and I think you will too. The addition of garam masala gives it a lovely spiced flavor unlike most soups I usually make. The flavor change-up is not only fun but fitting with the season. Who knew one little ingredient could yield so much flavor. And to make things even better, you can have this soup ready in 30 minutes or less.

Spiced Cauliflower and Chickpea Soup Recipe

Yep, bookmark this for your next lazy night. Most of the ingredients can be grabbed from the pantry, and you can make things even easier on yourself by picking up some Trader Joe’s mire poix if you don’t feel like chopping up the onion, celery, and carrot yourself. It’s one of my new favorite time-savers for post-long-work-day meals. Freeze the leftovers in individual serving containers for even easier meals later.

This Spiced Cauliflower and Chickpea Soup Recipe makes for a light but flavorful dinner and is perfect for a cold, winter night. The simple addition of garam masala gives the soup a beautiful, spiced taste. Serve with toasted whole grain bread. I’m currently loving the multigrain sourdough from Trader Joe’s.

  5. Garnish with parsley and serve.
Notes
Note: Looking for a shortcut? Pick up a mire poix from Trader Joe’s – pre cut onions, celery, and carrots for about $3.
