I’m still so excited that it’s October right now! I have been on a decorating mission. I’ve had a few things up since the beginning of last week, but this week, all bets are off. I am in full Halloween mode.
I made this banner a few weeks ago. I love banners, but I get frustrated when they look cheap or are too fancy. You know, when it has sassy ribbon or ric rac? I don’t dig it. This one I feel is the perfect solution, it’s pretty understated. It makes me feel better having it up in September that you almost don’t notice it is supposed to be fangs.
What you’ll need: Fabric/ Needle and thread/ Scissors/Fabric marker or pencil/ Yarn or twine/ Banner Template
Step One: Cut out your template pieces.
Step Two: Iron out your fabric and place template pieces on top, trace around them and cut out. This should leave you with 14 triangle pieces and 4 fang pieces.
Step Three: Sew two pieces together leaving the top open.
Step Four: Turn your pieces inside out and iron. Admire how nice they look. I personally put them in a neat little stack and felt smug about it for a minute or two.
Step Five: Tack your corners in. This doesn’t need to be pretty, no one will see it.
Step Six: Fold over your pieces about and inch from the top, iron it down to create a crease. Sew along the edge. to create a little tunnel for your yarn to be fed through.
Step Seven: String your banner on your tarn or twine, or thread or lace or what-have-you. I pained the fang tips of mine red, but that is totally up to you.
