Oh my goodness! Don’t you just love when a project turns out better than you pictured in your mind? That’s exactly what happened with this Felt Wall Banner. It’s an easy no-sew, DIY project that is perfect for any blank wall in your house and takes less than 15 minutes to make.
I wanted something for the boy’s bathroom. The walls are grey and the show curtain is white with yellow and blue stripes. I was going to make a printable but I was worried that the steam and moisture would ruin it so I figured a felt wall banner was the perfect solution. Do you know what’s great about using felt? No sewing is required. Which means it’s an easy, no-sew project.
Now, that’s what I’m talking about! I was also able to use my favorite crafting tool – my Cricut! Woohoo!! I love my Cricut but I’m sure you all know that by now.
And, guess what? It costs less than $5 to make. The felt was $1 and wooden dowel was only. .59 cents. I already had the white iron-on vinyl, rope, and glue gun but you won’t use a lot so it’s still an inexpensive project. You can also use felt letters and any quote you want if you don’t have a vinyl cutter.
Materials needed to make an Easy No Sew Felt Wall Banner:
- 12 x 18 felt sheet
- Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Wooden Dowel
- Hand Saw
- Iron-on Vinyl
- Cricut Explore Air 2 (or any vinyl cutting machine)
- Iron and Ironing Board
- FREE SVG Cut File (optional)
- Jute Rope
Step 1: Fold 2 inches of the felt over and glue edges down using the glue gun. Make sure to leave enough space to slide the wooden dowel through the hole.
Step 2: Cut the other end of the felt into a point using the ruler to make sure the edges are straight.
Step 3: Add the SVG Cut File to your Cricut Design Space. Make sure you attach all the images before clicking “Make It”.
Step 4. Now its time to let your Cricut work it’s magic. Make sure to click mirror and turn the dial to Iron On:)
Step 5: Weed out the vinyl around the image and iron onto the felt.
Step 6: Add the wooden dowel and tie a piece of jute rope around the ends of the dowel.
Now, you’re ready to hang your beautiful No Sew DIY Felt Wall Banner. Don’t be nervous about this project. This is a Craft Lightning Project so it takes less than 15 minutes to make. I think each of the boys need one in their rooms too. They are so easy to make that I might just have to make one for every room in the house.
