DIY: ‘Wildflower’ Fabric Cardboard Pennant Banner
Today, I will show you a straightforward and easy cardboard pennant banner tutorial I made on a whim.
This fabric cardboard pennant banner only took me 15 minutes to make including cutting the letters.
You will need:
- Yarn (string, rope or whichever you prefer).
- Hot Glue Gun
- Sharp scissor like this one
- Two contrasting fabrics of your choice
- A cardboard piece (from cardboard boxes, cardboard poster, etc)
- Start with drawing a pennant banner flag shape on the cardboard piece. Any size you want! Make sure it is big enough to fit the word you want.
- Cut the cardboard piece.
- Set the main fabric you want for the background on a clean surface and put the banner cardboard on top of the fabric and start tracing the banner on the fabric, but add ½ inch to all sides. That way, the fabric will be able to cover the edges. Hot glue the fabric to the banner, making sure to stretch it to prevent creases.
- Now, it is time for the fabric letters! You could find your favorite font, print it out and stencil it on the second fabric of your choice. I prefer to wing it and cut the letters without stenciling beforehand. I like how rough it looks. After you have completed cutting the letters, use hot glue to attach them to the main background fabric.
- Hot glue the yarn to the back of the banner.
- Lastly, cut another piece of the main fabric to the exact size of the banner and hot glue it to the back.
I used the rainbow washi tape to hang it up on the wall in Coral’s bedroom.
If you made a pennant banner using my instructions, I would love to see the pictures! 😉
