Supplies: Fabric, scissors, fabric paint, glue, thin rope
Time: 30 minutes plus 1-2 hours to let the ink dry
Today I rifled through my collection of materials for inspiration. I went through a lot of ideas before settling on a nice rainy day project (though it was just overcast). My bedroom walls are still pretty bare, so I decided to make a nice printed pennant garland to hang above my bed. I started with some cheap fabric from the scrap bin and free fabric from my mom.
Next I made a template for my pennants. I cut a square of paper and folded it in half like this:
Then I folded it to make a triangle like this:
I cut it out and then traced it on cardboard to make a sturdier template. I wanted to write some positive words on the garland, so I counted my letters, added spaces, and one extra at each end and traced the triangles on the fabric.
Cut out your triangle…
Then I whipped out my gold fabric ink and paint brush…
And painted one letter on each triangle.
Once the ink was dry I used a silver paint pen to outline the letters. Then I measured the top of one pennant to figure out how long my rope needed to be. I cut the rope and whipped out my glue gun again.
Glue the triangles (make sure they’re in the right order!) onto a piece of thin rope. That’s it! Hang it up somewhere and enjoy your quick and easy project!
See you tomorrow!
