{Tutorial} Chevron Banner

Chevron Banner made with Riley Blake's chevron fabric 

Well, Summer is almost officially here, so I decided it was about time to take down the mismatched decor I had on the “faux mantel” and make it bright and cheery for Summer. I will do a full reveal later this week, but first I thought I would share this quick and easy chevron fabric banner that I made. 

PS, apparently I have an obsession with Riley Blake’s chevron fabric, because this was just some of what I had laying around my house!!

So I started by putting a stabilizer on the back of all 3 fabrics. Then I cut out a template of the scalloped triangle shape from my cricut mini. Once my template was cut, I traced it onto the back of the stabilizer and cut out my shapes!

 

Once they were all cut, I made a slit about 1/2 inch in and 1/4 inch down on each side of the pendant.

I used a bright orange 1/4 inch ribbon to string up the banner. Just weaved it in and out of the slits, in a yellow, pink and green pattern.

On the ends I wanted just a bunch of ribbon scraps. So I made a slip knot and put the ribbon inside. Then pulled the knot tight and did one more knot around it to keep it tight.

I then just taped it up in the corner’s of my faux mantel.

The brightness and colors are so welcoming right inside the front door, and I love how perfect they are for summer!!

  1. oh my gosh that turned out so cute! I need to make one! Where do I find fabric stabilizer?

    • Thanks Aimee. You can get stabilizer at pretty much any fabric store. It’s by the heat & bond, usually closer to the cutting table. But your best bet is to just ask. They will know just what you need!

  2. Way cute Vanessa! I can’t believe you found time to craft with all you have going on!! Love this!

  3. I used to see and bookmark banners like these, and wish I could buy them – now, it’s so nice to see a tutorial for them and feel like I could actually pull one off! Thanks!

  4. SUPER cute! Love the fabric!

  5. This is so cute. I like how you added the stabilizer to make it more stiff/durable – I would never have thought of that. Love the colors!
