DIY Banner

Easy, peasy, no sewing required.

It’s my first, so I know you can make one!

On this day, the sale items at Goodwill were the yellow tags.

Love getting all this fabric for half price!

I found just what I was looking for ๐Ÿ™‚


I made a paper template and used my pinking shears to cut out triangles. (no picture of this)

I created a 1 1/2 inch space at the top, so I could fold it over the string and use my hot glue gun.

I had 4 different colors, so I cut 4 triangles of each color.

I spaced them every 5 inches, you could put them next to each other too.

They just blow in the wind ๐Ÿ™‚

They are perfect for this outside setting.

And don’t you just love the colors?

I think I’m in love with banners.

  1. Banner is great but don’t I think that red dress would have looked fabulous on you!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. You have made a Student Council advisor VERY happy! We can use fabric to quickly (and cheaply) decorate our school halls for orientation! I’m thinking if I found sturdy fabric (denim?), we could use paint markers to write messages on them. =)

  3. The banner looks great! Why have I never thought of a no-sew version? ๐Ÿ˜€

  4. Love it too Debbie. I love banners too. They are so cute and colorful, and add that touch of whimsy.

  5. Again, great idea on the fabric! I do shop my attic full of kids outgrown clothes for fabric too. Those dresses were saved from NEVER being worn again, I’m sure! Love the banner; so summery!

  6. Very cute, and just perfect for 4th of July parties with the red, white and blue tones of the banner!

    Very clever, Debbie!

  7. Debbie can I make a banner telling you how much I love your banner?

    And I’ve just had a head clunking moment … I’m sitting here like I was just hit on the head with an anvil … but fabric from Goodwill finds? Right? Genius! And why have I never thought of that …?

    I’m so excited that I think I need to race out to the Salvation Army right now …



  8. Thank you a million times over for showing me how to do this without sewing! My glue gun and I could totally do this. Pinning!


  9. So cute & I love the little trucks!

  10. Turned out nice Ms. RR. I have make banner on my list too. I have part of the supplies but it won’t really be summery and inspiration has not completely hit me yet. Maybe we need a banner link party?


  11. You had me at no sew!! Love that you used Goodwill clothes!!

  12. Debbie, This is sooooo neat and easy. Looks great. Hugs, Ginger

  13. I love this! I’ve been wanting to make a fabric banner for outside and never even thought of thrifted clothing as fabric. Awesome idea!

  14. So pretty and perfectly SUMMER! Love the last shot too. Very artsy ๐Ÿ˜‰

  15. You had me at “no sew”!!! I love this project — oerfect for summer outdoor entertaining. Love. ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. I love this project and it is adorabble!!!

  17. I like how it blowes in the wind! It’s funny, I just used some old PJ pants to make a 4th of July banner. Great minds think alike:)

  18. This is super cute! I hadn’t thought about using fabric from old clothes to make banners.

  19. What a cute banner! So simple and clever.

  20. So pretty, Debbie! I may never look at clothes the same way! I am not a “fabric” girl because I don’t sew, but I never really thought of using old clothes to turn into fabulous no-sew creations! Thanks for sharing! I hope you have a great time at Haven, I look forward to hearing all about it!

  21. This is perfect for your setting – and I love the idea of using thrifted clothes!

  22. Anything no sew works for me. Very cute, Debbie, and colorful.

  23. I love that you used goodwill finds .. and that it’s no sew. Awesome!!

  24. I love your banner, and I think I am in love with them too. Recycling clothes we have or from the thrift store (especially half price!) is such an awesome way to buy fabric. Fabric has become crazy-expensive! I will need to dig thru my “fabric” now and get going ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have a great week- Tanya

  25. Banners are so cheery and uplifting and fun. Yours turned out great, love it!

  26. this is such a great idea. i never would have thought to use vintage clothes for a banner. well done!

  27. I really like this, Debbie! Good job! Sooo cute!!

  28. Oh wow, it never occurred to me to get fabric that way. Love this!
