A party for my girl: chevron boho banner

 

Sabrina loved the banner that I made for her boho themed birthday party.

She asked to take it back to her apartment at school so she can decorate her room. She said that she had been wanting to buy a banner similar to it, but with longer fabric strips.

To make this banner, I used:

-twine
-fabric- chevron, black and gold
-fabric glue
-small clothespins

I started by creating the main part of the banner. I cut the black fabric into a big rectangle, laid a gold strip of fabric on top and then another smaller rectangular piece of chevron fabric on top. I used fabric glue to glue it all together. To attach the banner to the twine, I used two small clothespins. They held the banner up very well. It did not fall apart once.

I cut same sized strips of the fabric. I had 18 in total: 6 chevron, 6 black and 6 gold strips.

Instead of tying the fabric onto the twine, I tied the twine onto the fabric. I laid the piece of fabric on top of the twine and vertical to it. Then, IĀ folded the fabric in half over the twine so that when I tied the twine together in a knot, it would hold the fabric in place. I did this 9 times on one side and 9 times on the other side. I made sure that the fabric pieces were tied 1 inch apart.

I used 2 additional clothespins to hang the banner. A fun project and easy to make.
