I love adding new decorative items to our home, homemade ones especially, they add some real personality to what could otherwise be rather bland walls.
Yesterday I decided to finally do something with a piece of chalk fabric that has been taunting me for a while
How To ~ DIY Pennant chalk fabric banner
Step 1. Gather your supplies; you’ll need chalk fabric, chalk and twine. The decorative elements, confetti and pom poms are all optional.
Step 2. On the reverse of the fabric draw the outline of the banner you wish to use, and cut it out.
Step 3. Before you add and words or design to chalk fabric you need to cure it. Grab a chalk, yep I nabbed some from the kids art box, and rub it all over the fabric a bunch of times.
Step 4. Use a chalk eraser to rub out the chalk.
Step 5. Add your design. I used some chalk pens, honestly not too sure how I feel about them.
Step 6. Add decorative elements if you wish. I sewed the pom pom trim to the top of the banner, and used glue dots to adhere the confetti.
Step 7. To hang the banner I sewed a length of bakers twine to the top two corners of the banner, this made a loop for hanging.
Looks rather lovely against the yellow wall among all the other bits and bobs I’ve added.
