DIY: Fabric Party Banners

I love this project. It can be used for some many different things: parties, showers, weddings, nursery decor, photo shoots… It is so versatile, because you can easily personalize it to a color scheme, theme or other personal preference. In the past, I made a fabric banner for my sister-in-law’s wedding shower (see here). This time around, I knew exactly what I was doing. I tweaked the project and made it even easier. This particular banner was used for my hubby’s 30th birthday party. Check back in the next week or so to see details from the big bash.

You’ll need:

  • Fabric
  • Ruler, Paper and Pencil to make a pattern
  • Scissors
  • Ribbon
  • Pins
  • Heat ‘n Bond
  • Small dowel rods (optional)
  • Iron

Step one: Pick your fabrics. It’s easy to find girly fabrics, so I had to really take my time searching out fabrics that were “manly” enough for husband’s birthday bash. I landed on these three fabrics from Hobbly Lobby.

Step two: Make a pattern out of some scrap paper. I made two different sizes, but you could make as many as you want or keep all the trianlges the same size. I pinned the pattern to the fabric and got to cutting.

Step three: Pin the triangles to the ribbon and map out where you want each one to go. Set up your ironing board and start to cut out strips of heat ‘n bond. Begin to iron triangles into place.

Step four: Hang, smile and be proud.

Optional: Take extra fabric and cut into small triangles. Staple around the dowel rods and use as extra decoration.
