Mini button banner
These little banners look really cute on Christmas trees. Banners are everywhere right now and have been for a while. I have large banners I decorate my home with and love using them for special occasions like this one I made for a picnic up north by the creek.
I made it from this old vintage shirt I picked up second hand.
We loved our little picnic breaks by the creek after a weekend of painting and fixing up the little red house, the water is super cold though, so the kids did not stay in for long.
Banners are so easy to make and these miniature ones don’t take a lot of fabric, so it is another way to use up all those little fabric scraps. I added buttons to mine to give it a country look but you can spell words of Christmas greetings too.
Cardstock for template
Step 1- draw a tiny triangle onto cardstock to use as your template and start tracing that onto fabric to cut out.
Step 2- you will need two flags, one for front and one for back.
Glue flags onto string,
Add buttons to decorate.
These also look pretty on frames and bulletin boards.
A whole strand of these wrapped around a Christmas tree would look so pretty. Happy crafting everyone.
