Festive Fabric Banner

I know it is only the first of September but I am so anxious for fall. It is by far my favorite season with all of the beautiful colors, cool weather and upcoming family gatherings. I have been seeing these fabric scrap banners all over Pinterest and just loved them. Such an easy and colorful way to get in the holiday spirit.

I decided to head to Jo-Ann Fabrics to pick out some fabrics and make my own for fall. I realized that the fabric quarters are the perfect size and I had so many colors and patterns to choose from. I used a 15% coupon so each on ended up being $1.19. I already had some twin and scissors at home to this project totaled around $12.00.
I took each fabric quarter and made shallow cuts about two inches apart. You don’t need to be precis with this which is a nice relief!
Once you make the shallow cuts, just rip each strip the rest of the way to get the frayed look. If you like things cleaner, you can cut each stripe but they will still fray a little over time.

Our mantle was made for this piece! There were even 3 nails in the perfect place to hang it. I have to admit, I was a little bummed I didn’t have to take the hammer out again 🙂
