Festive Fabric Banner

< Back to Happy Halloween

Materials

  • 2-3 yards of fabric in Halloween prints or colors
  • Piece of cardboard (a cereal box works well)
  • Scissors
  • Iron
  • Strips of matching ribbon, beads in colors to match, and any Halloween-themed items you want to add
  • Sewing machine

Instructions

  1. Cut or tear a length of fabric as long as you want the garland. If you want it longer than you can cut in one piece, just cut it in several lengths, then tie them together to form one long piece. (You can sew them if you choose, but tying them works fine.) Don’t worry if it frays; this adds to the homespun look!
  2. Make a triangle template from the cardboard. The triangle should have two longer sides and one shorter one which is the top.
  3. Trace around the template on the various pieces of fabric to make as twice as many triangles as you want to hang from the banner.
  4. Match up two triangles to each other, wrong sides together, and sew both sides to the long point, leaving the top open.
  5. Turn triangle right side out and iron the seams.
  6. Line up the triangles along the fabric strip, leaving a few inches between each. Pin, then sew using a zig zag stitch across the tops of the triangles.
  7. Make a loop at each end of the strip and hang.
  8. Once hung, add other items to make your banner even more festive: You can tie ribbons into bows in between each triangle or dangle beads, ghosts, or wooden balls you’ve painted to look like pumpkins.
