We have a party coming up. You should know something about me: I love parties.
I LOVE parties. I go overboard with over-the-top details. I plan months in advance and most parties revolve around a color scheme.
I love to make sure that everything looks just right. One of my party staples is the DIY triangle banner. It’s so easy and quick and adds the perfect pop of fun to any cake table, room border, photo wall, chairs, or trees.
You will need:
Bias tape -
Pinking shears (or any scissors) -
And a sewing machine.
First, layer the fabric on top of each other. I fold the fat quarters in 1/2 and cut so that I cut through 4 layers. Eyeball the length and width of the triangles because it makes for a funkier look, which I tend to like.
Sew along 2 sides of the triangle. I do this just because it’s less sewing, as the top can be a raw edge since it’s going in the bias tape and won’t be seen.
You can iron them when you’re done.
Then take the bias tape and stick the top end of the triangle inside. Sew it shut.
I did a zig zag stitch along the pennant tops and in between pennants, I did a straight stitch. I liked the way it looked. Of course, you can do whatever kind of stitch you like. It doesn’t matter.
There you have it. Easy as pie!
If you don’t have a sewing machine, you could hand stitch it. It might take forever and a day. Or, I suppose, you could also hot glue it. I might do this in a pinch…if I didn’t want to haul the sewing machine out. But I really think the sewn edges makes it look more ‘finished.’
