DIY: Cloth Name Banner

Early last winter I made some fun name banners to hang up in my room and this time I've come back to show you a fun new idea on the name banners! I wanted to make a little something to make my new roommate, Raven, feel more at home and hopefully this did the trick!

Construction paper
Scissors (you may also need an exacto knife)
Needle and thread (or a sewing machine)

Step One:
Cut out the letters you will need for the name.

Step Two:
Trace and cut out triangles big than the letters you cut out in step one.

Step Three:
Fold the top part of the triangles over and pin your letters to them.

Step Four:
Sew along the fold making sure to get the letter as well. Also cut off those excess flaps from you folded over the top of the triangle.

Step Five:
All that is left is to string the yarn through the tunnels you made when you folded the triangles. Then hang up your banner wherever you want!

I hung up my banners in the living room above the T.V. and I think they look so cute! What do you guys think?
