DIY Fabric Banner Tutorial
A fabric banner is a fast and easy way to decorate your home in a shabby chic style.
I wanted to find some scrap fabric at a flea market to use for this project but I couldn’t find any that fit with a Valentine’s Day theme.
So I went to Wal-Mart and found some fabric that was not specifically for Valentine’s Day but was pretty in pink so it worked perfectly!
A fabric banner is so easy that it can be a fun activity to make with your kids.
So grab some fabric and let’s get started!!

1. Cut the twine or yarn to about 40” long for a small banner, 55”-60” for a medium length and 65”-75” for a large banner; you will tie all your fabric onto the twine or yarn. You should cut fabric into strips about 2” wide by 26”-28” long (depending on how large you want your banner).
2. Take a strip of fabric and fold it in half. Place the twine over the fabric towards the top of the fold. Pull the ends of the fabric through the fabric loop, enclosing the twine and pull tight.
3. Repeat step 3, until the length of twine is completely covered. Be sure to leave about 1”-2” of uncovered twine at each end to make it easier to hang the banner.
4. You can either tape or hang your banner. To make hanging easier, make a small loop at each end of the twine and either tie a knot to complete the loop or tape or sew the loop closed.
5. You can also tie a bow at the end of each side where the fabric ends to complete the banner.
This is easy but can be time-consuming depending on how long you want your banner to be.
