Making Banner Pennants



You know banners are all the rage right now. My daughters birthday is coming in January so, I thought I would make banners for her party. It is going to be on a horse farm and the mood very casual. These would be perfect. Note: Once I make something and I love it, I become obsessed, I mean like staying up all night, looking at pictures of them and dreaming of ways I can have more of my new lovelies in my life. I mean everything looks cute when you put a banner on it. This is just the type person I am, I'm just saying.

So for my very first try of banners I bought a kit that already had them laid out on the fabric. Since this time, I have found my own pattern online and used it to make hundreds,just Google DIY Pennant.


This is what I started with. The fabric was really already done, all I had to do was cut it out. Easy!! Sorry not sure what the name of this is, I threw the package away. But any craft store carries this or something similar.


I cut the banners out and matched designs to a flow that felt good to me. You can make them double sided if you want, I think it all depends on where this is going to hang.


Sorry, I know I skipped the picture about the letters and string but, really just reverse cut letters out of fabric and stick on. The twine was attached by cutting small slits in the fabric at the top of the banner. I made it pretty long and kinda like how the extra hangs over.


This banner was made to hang in my daughters room. Take a look at this post to see the banners in action.


Then I proceded to walk around my yard finding other places to put the banners. Even this old Impala looks cute.


The gate at the top of our driveway rocks this banner also. I made another one of these that stays there during certain holidays.



Here is a paper banner that hangs in my booth. This was taken before the string was attached but, you get the picture.

So thats it, easy, easy and I know that you can sew them and attach fancy ribbons and all that and trust me I have but, for a fun barn birthday party I think these are just what my Cowgirl needed.

Now go make some banners of your own Ya'll!!
