Hi there! I have been on a 4th of July decorating kick at my house!! Yesterday I made this fun Star Banner. I love banners....they are so easy to make and the sky is the limit with banners! I love making them for Holidays because they always add a little extra cuteness to my home for each holiday!
For this banner, I wanted it to be sort of rustic and not perfect. The raw edges of the fabric are a bit frayed and the stitching isn't perfect--but that's why I like it!
Let me show you how I made it!
Red Embroidery Floss (to string them together)
1. You will need two circles and one star for each pennant. (print off template--at the bottom of the post--or make your own)
Line your star with fusible web.
Step 2: Place the two circles together and with a zig zag stitch, stitch around the perimeter of your circle..I did this twice on each circle..just so it would stand out more! Like I said, it doesn't have to be perfect!
Step 3: Iron your star on and zig zag stitch around it to secure.
Step 4: String them together with six-ply embroidery floss.
That's it! Super simple, but cute and festive!
Talk to you soon,
