easy felt banner

I'm gearing up for my daughter's birthday this weekend.  I've got the guests invited, menu planned, activities thought out and now I'm working on the decorations.

The first project I did is this felt banner. 
(inspired by one I purchased from this seller on Etsy.)

I first cut the 8x11 inch felt sheets (from Hobby Lobby) into 3 inch strips.  Then I hand cut a triangle out of some paper, and used it as a template for the felt triangles.  I used my rotary cutter so my hand didn't die from cutting each individual triangle out.

I threaded the triangles onto floss using a big needle.

It was super simple.

And here it is- the first of many decorations to do for my daughter's party.   In my opinion, a party worth throwing, is a party worth stressing about and going over board for, much to my husband's dismay!  So I'm sure I'll have many late nights this week as I work on everything.  It will be worth it- it always is.


  1. Cute, cute, cute. I love it!

  2. Details like this are awesome - LOVE how it turned out!

  3. I love the colors! I just love the felt at Hobby Lobby, its so cheap! :) It looks like your party is going to be super cute, and you're right if your gonna throw a party might as well make it a good one! :)

  4. I love this.. the simplicity is delightful! Adorable!
