no sew fabric pennant banner tutorial

my sister-in-law is going to have a baby boy anyday now,
so i decided to make her a little something for his room
the room is sports-themed
which led me to these colors...


i really love orange and blue together for a boy
plus i thought the orange would pair well with
footballs and basketballs


most bedroom walls are about the same size
i got 1/4 yard of each fabric and had plenty to work with



i cut out a template of a triangle
ironed my fabric and then simply used my
pinking shears and cut each triangle...
7 from each different fabric




then decide which order you'd like them to hang



i took fabric glue and lined the wrong side of each fabric triangle


and then laid it down on top of my ribbon
i chose a big thick navy blue satin ribbon
it came in 7 yards, the longer the better




then simply glue the rest of the ribbon right across the top of the banner


you can leave longer lengths of ribbon on the end
but i wanted the pennants to reach all the way to the corner of the wall





let the glue dry and then hang!
we used navy blue pushpins to hang
and it worked wonderfully


simple way to add a little custom
decor to any bedroom
or any place in your house
just think of all the holiday banners you could create!

  1. Nicely done!! I've been toying with the idea of some candy-corn banners using this shape for halloween decor - I might just take the no-sew route!
