Easy Peasy DIY Banner Garland – No Sewing And No Template Required!

| | | | | |

I am sharing a very easy tutorial on how to make a banner garland, that will save you time!

If I had thought of this method for creating a diy banner garland before now, I would have been a banner garland making diva all along!  I would have been churning out banners for every single season, holiday and fun get together.  No sewing, no template using, no shape cutting required.  Perfect for my simple craft loving self.

The one that I’m sharing with you today is obviously for July 4th {or anytime you’re feeling patriotic}, but by simply changing out the ribbons, you can create one for any holiday occasion or season.  I chose to give my garland a farmhouse vibe, so that it would fit in with the rest of my decor, by using ribbon that has an antiqued appearance.

How to make a super quick and easy diy banner garland. Simply change out the ribbons for any occasion or season.Pin

In fact, it’s so simple to do, that it really isn’t necessary for me to give you a tutorial.  You can probably tell how I made it just by look at the photos, but here’s a little explanation.  Scroll down for the supply list

Ok – here we go…

Step 1: Determine the length of the garland banner that you want and cut a piece of jute twine to the needed length.  Tie a small loop at each end to aid in hanging the garland.

Step 2: Cut enough 12″ lengths of both patterns of the 2 1/2″ wide ribbons to fill up the length of jute twine that you cut.  Cut the ribbon straight across.

Step 3: Alternating patterns as you go, fold each cut piece of the wide ribbon in half, over the twine.  Secure with a small dot of hot glue in the bottom corner of each folded ribbon piece.

Step 4: Cut 4″ lengths of the 3/8″ wide ribbon.  Tie a cut piece of the ribbon in between each of the wide ribbon pieces.

  10. Thank you for sharing this easy design! I used pieces of burlap that I painted and cut. It’s really important to have those tied ribbons in between. Not only does this make it look prettier, but it also holds the pieces and keeps them from bunching up on one end or the other. Thanks again!

  11. Jealous over this. It’s really really nice.Thanks for sharing
