DIY Fall Banners

You’ll need:

  • various fall colored felt
  • sharp fabric scissors
  • twine
  • fabric or craft glue
  • thin wooden dowels or skewers with sharp ends removed

I made mine roughly 1.5″ wide by 2.5″ tall and just free handed the cutting. I find imperfection charming, but if it isn’t your style, print a phrase from your word processing program and use it as a guide . . . or even trace it!
