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.
I love how the little banner turned out and think it will be a great fall decoration to use year after year.
With a DIY fall banner like this one, life really is a party!
