A simple no sew banner tutorial- the process is easy and the results are darling!

This year my friends and I threw a Santa Letter Writing Party. The kids were darling as they tried to think of what they wanted to ask Santa to bring for Christmas. The party ended with a surprise visitor and all of our little guests got to hand deliver their letters directly to the big guy himself.

We had a gorgeous dessert table with many delicious treats and drinks and one of my friends (AKA a pretty dang good event planner) suggested I make a no-sew banner to hang from the front of the table- genius! She sketched out a design and I got to work. I didn’t have a lot of time to spend on the banner so I knew it needed to be quick and simple. Folks, let me tell you it took all of 30 minutes to finish! Here is the tutorial:

Make Your Own 30 Minute No Sew Banner

MATERIALS: 

  • scissors
  • 3 grey felt sheets
  • 2 white felt sheets
  • iron
  • double sided fusible interfacing (enough for 2 felt sheets)
  • computer & printer
  • straight pins
  • hot glue gun
  • pom pom ribbon – however long you want your banner to be

DIRECTIONS: 

Step 1:  Fold 1 grey felt sheet in half long ways and cut off the corner at a diagonal to create the banner shape.

Step 2: Use the corner cut off from the first felt sheet as a guide to cut 2 more grey felt sheets so they are the same shape.

Step 3: Iron 2 white felt sheets onto double sided fusible interfacing. Follow the directions that come with your particular brand.

Step 4: Print out the word JOY onto card stock and cut them out. I used the font POPLAR STD at font size 775.

Step 5: Pin the letters to the white felt that is already ironed onto the double sided fusible interfacing and cut them out. No Sew Banner - Somewhat Simple 5

Step 6: Once your letters have been cut out, center them with the fusible side down on the grey felt sheets. Only 1 letter per base.

Step 7: Glue the pom pom ribbon onto the top of your banner using a hot glue gun.  This is what connects the felt sheets together.
