DIY Banner Wall Decor

Feb 4, 2015

I've been spotting some really beautiful and unique wall decor online lately and I'm eager to try and incorporate a variety of decor to my walls. I especially love the colorful woven tapestries that are popping up in my Pinterest feed, like these from Anthropologie.
Since there's no way I could replicate these intricate and detailed tapestries;  I found some other wall decor that I also really love. The much more simple and modern look of the banner below was my inspiration for creating some easy hanging wall decor of my own. 
DIY Banner Wall Decor
I've been searching for something to go above our bed so maybe this will eventually find its home there.

Supplies:
  • Wooden dowel
  • Fabric
  • Needle and thread or sewing machine
  • Permanent marker
  • Iron
  • Scissors
  • String or jute
Instructions:
  • Cut your fabric to size based on the width of your dowel and your preferred length.
  • Fold down the top edge approximately 2"(enough room for your dowel to fit through) and sew.
  • If you wish to use two different fabrics like I did, sew your triangle onto your square fabric and then iron the seam flat.
  • Using permanent marker, write your text.
  • Once complete, insert the dowel through the loop. Tie jute or other string to each end of the dowel to hang your art by.
And that's it! In only a few minutes (literally! I think this took 20 minutes max), you have a new beautiful, unique and handmade banner decor to add to your walls.
