Happy Monday! Did you know that Easter is early this year, on March 27th? That’s just 33 days away! Today, I’m going to show you step-by-step how to make this He Has Risen Easter Banner! Here’s what you will need for this easy DIY!
Fabric 13″ x 16.5″ (I used an inexpensive utility cotton fabric)
1 12 inch 1/4″ dowel rod (available at craft stores in a multiple pack)
Black Sharpee marker
DMC Floss for Tassel (you choose the color)
Printable Pattern (below)
Sewing Machine, Fabric Glue, or Fusible Fabric Tape
First, cut a piece of fabric to measure 13″ x 16.5″. Fold your fabric in half lengthwise and use your ruler to make a diagonal mark at the bottom to form the point of your banner. Cut along that line.
Now you have your basic banner. To finish your edges you can either sew, use fabric glue, or fusible fabric tape. You basically need to fold over each edge 1/2″, press with an iron, and fold over another 1/2 inch – then glue, fuse, or sew. For the top seam, you need to leave an opening for your dowel rod. I chose to sew mine and here is what it looks like finished with the dowel rod.
Once the edges are finished, it’s time to transfer the design onto the front of the fabric. To do this, print out the template below (just click the title below the image to download and print).
After you print the template, place it underneath your finished banner and trace the image lightly with pencil onto the front of the banner. Once traced, go over the pattern with the black Sharpee marker. Now, it’s time to make a hanger for the banner. Wrap the end of the dowel rod with twine and tie a knot at the back of the banner. Cut the twine to the length you want your hanger to be and wrap the other end of the dowel and knot in the back.
If you want, you can add a fun tassel to your banner with DMC floss. Follow my tassel tutorial HERE.
