12 Days of Creating: Pretty Muslin Banner (no sew)

Day 12! I just can’t even believe it, December 12th already?! Tonight is one I really love. I think the possibilities are endless! Fairly simple and oh so pretty! I found a pin on Pinterest of a banner while I was searching for ideas to help decorate a recent event. It is my inspiration for tonights post. (all photos below are taken with my iPhone)

Supplies used:

Muslin – hobby lobby with a 40% off coupon

twine  (or yarn – or rope)

hot glue gun (I had planned on using a HeatNBond type thing but totally forget to get one so I used hot glue instead and it worked just find… I think it would depend on your choice of fabric)

rotary cutter (or scissors)

other fabric – for the banner words

Step 1: Iron muslin and then cut it. Mine are all 5 inches long and 4 inches wide.

Step 2: After cutting it, lay material out in the exact spacing you would like your banner to be.

Step 3: glue twine to material carefully

Step 5: Cut out letters

Step 6: Glue letters to muslin (or to HeatNBond and then iron them onto muslin)
