Boho Home Series: Flag Banners (Indoor / Outdoor)

Finally got done with a few more DIY projects. One of the first that I completed, also the easiest, was the flag boho banner.

Give your home or patio a festive, casual look with this super simple, colorful fabric flag banner. All you need are scraps of old fabric and a whole lot of patience.

Materials:

  1. Old colorful fabric squares 
  2. Scissors
  3. Hot glue
  4. Paper & Pencil
  5. Twine

Process:

  1. Choose the fabric pieces you want to use. Try to mix in different colors and patterns together.            IMG_2488
  2. Draw a triangle template on paper and cut it out.
  3. Use the template as a base to cut out triangles from your fabric.                                                 IMG_2490
  4. Arrange the different triangles in the order you like.
  5. Unravel your twine and keep it taut and straight by holding the edges between 2 heavy objects.
  6. Place the twine on top of a fabric triangle, leaving one inch from the edge. Add hot glue to the twine and wrap the edge of the fabric over it.                                                       IMG_2521
  7. Repeat this for all triangles, leaving about 2 cms between each triangle. Let everything dry. Get some pins or tape and find a nice place to hang your banner.          IMG_2522

You can also use tassels, pom-poms or fabric strips as embellishments between each triangle. Make multiple strands of these and join them by collecting and tying the ends together to create a wall display.
