Cutting the Easy No Sew Banner DIY
When I make the banner pieces, I start with a rectangle, fold it in half and line up my ruler with the points of the open side and about 1 1/2″ up the folded side. You don’t want to angle things too much or the “V” will be too deep. To get a nice, straight edge, I recommend a rotary cutter but you could draw a line lightly with a pencil and cut with scissors if you don’t have a rotary cutter.
Next I glued two small rectangles onto the back but I only put glue at the top and the bottom of the rectangle so you can still slide ribbon or twine through. Here’s an image because a picture is worth a thousand words, right?
Make as many of these as you need to cover the width of your mantel, window, or wherever you plan to hang it. I decorated this one with stencils that I made with my Cricut. You could use any kind of stencils, iron-on shapes, or even hand paint things.
You should use an up and down dabbing motion when applying the paint. Don’t paint with a side to side motion or paint will seep underneath the design. Just dab the paint on and take your time. I cut my stencil a little short at the top so I held a piece of paper along the top so I didn’t get paint where I didn’t want it. I used tweezers to pull my letters off being careful to wipe the tweezers and my hands clean with each letter. I had a damp rag right next to me.
