*2 types of fabric. I used black brocade from an unused garment and a gray and black brocade from JOANN Fabrics and Crafts.

*Regular white paper or card stock for making template. Pencil for drawing. Ruler for creating a slanted triangle edge.

*Regular scissors for cutting template.

*Fabric glue. I used Aleene's Fabric Fusion Permanent Fabric Adhesive You may also sew by hand.

*Twine for hanging banner. Black or taupe.

Step 1

Make template. Fold a piece of paper in half. Make half of an elongated triangle. Use the bottom edge of paper as the base. Angle a ruler 2 & 1/2 inches from base toward the folded papers center. Cut template with regular scissors. Unfold.

Step 2 

Create 4 pieces. Hold elongated triangle template over fabric choice 1.  Fold fabric in half. Cut out with fabric scissors. Tip: I tie a piece of fabric through my fabric cutting scissors so that I don't mistakenly use these on paper. Causing the blade to dull.

Step 3. Create 3-4 more pieces with fabric choice #2. Repeat with step 2. You should now have a total of  7-8 elongated triangle fabric pieces.

Step 4. Glue fabric banner edges together over twine. Alternating fabrics.

Step 5 :Hang banner over mantle or behind a bed-frame for festive charm.

Happy crafting,
