How To Make A Plaid Banner

One of the things that I love most about our fall shelves this year, is the plaid banner. Not only did it finish everything off, but it added another depth of texture.

And it was so simple to make!

Here’s how:

Start by cutting the flags. Pick any size or shape and cut as many as you want. I used 5.

Next, lay the flags on a flat surface and space them apart evenly.

Roll out jute rope across the entire thing, leaving extra string on the ends to hang the banner. Then run a bead of hot glue across the top of the flag. Be sure to leave room at the top to fold the fabric over.

Press the jute rope on top of the hot glue…

Then run another bead of hot glue just beneath the jute rope.

Fold the fabric over and press it into the hot glue.

Do the same thing to each flag. And, it’s done!

To attach it to our shelves, I just hot glued it to the bottom side of the shelf.

Easy!
