I wanted to make a DIY fall banner for a little get-together we’re planning, and here’s what I came up with.

Materials:

  • orange felt
  • burlap
  • letter stencil
  • black craft paint
  • orange craft paint
  • paint brush
  • orange ribbon
  • grommets
  • hammer

How To Make A DIY Fall Banner

To make the “happy” circle banner I used a cup and traced circles on to the orange felt.

I cut out simple triangles for the “fall” bunting out of some burlap.

To add the letters to the fabric I used some black craft paint and a dollar store letter stencil. Since I was just doing one letter per piece, I didn’t have to tape down the stencil, I just held it steady, making this a really quick and easy project.

I also added fun polka dots to the fall bunting. I used the end of a marker, since it was about the size of the dot I wanted and dipped it into the paint and then onto the bunting.

To string up the banner, after the lettering dried over night, I added grommets. They are simple to use, you just need the special little tool, I got mine at the dollar store a few years ago, and a hammer.  If you didn’t have grommets you could just create slits or holes in the felt and thread them onto the ribbon that way.

To add the grommet you snip a tiny hole, then insert the grommet from the front, and hammer it closed with the special tool from the back. Easy peasy, and really cute.

I used some orange ribbon to thread them all together.
