How often do you walk through a store, see something on the shelf and think to yourself “I could TOTALLY make that!” It happens to me all the time. Sometimes I may be thinking just a bit to highly of my DIY and crafting abilities, but often I’m able to pull off my own version pretty flawlessly. These kinds of thoughts come to me quite often while I’m browsing the aisles of craft stores. I love visiting the “decorating” aisles for a bit of inspiration and then heading to the supply aisles to get everything I need to make them myself. 

One thing I’ve been seeing a lot lately that I knew I had the ability to make is those pretty canvas wall banners. They have been on my “To Do” list for a long time and I finally sat down to figure out the logistics for DIYing one myself. I decided to go with a Valentine’s Day/Love theme for my banner (since V-Day is just around the corner) but I also wanted a design that wasn’t too holiday themed so that if I wanted to I could keep it up all year long. 

This banner could just as easily be hung from your front door as from a wall inside your house. I decided to sew my banner, instead of going with a no-sew version so that it would be durable and last for the long haul without the edges fraying. If sewing isn’t your thing, you can definitely just leave the edges raw. 

I’m so pleased with how my finished banner turned out. I think I’m going to hang it on our front door for awhile, then move it to our family photo wall, and it may even see a few appearances on my craft room wall! Now that I’ve made one, I can’t wait to get started designing my next banner!

Step 3: Fold your canvas in half so that the two tips of the banner are lined up. Measure down 1.5 inches from your folded edge on each side and mark with a straight pin. Pin or wonder clip the rest of your banner in place. Using a 1/4 inch seam allowance, sew from the straight pin on the right that you used to measure 1.5 inches down, down around and back up to the second straight pin that you used to measure 1.5 inches down. See photo below.

Step 4: Using one of the gaps where you didn’t sew, flip your banner right side out. Push out your corners and edges and press into place.

Step 5: Slip your dowel into the top of your banner. Place a straight pin on one side slightly below where the dowel is so there is enough room for the dowel to slide in and out of the banner. Measure how far down your pin is and measure and pin the same distance on the opposite side. Remove your dowel and it’s time for the last sewing step! To give your banner a finished look, stitch along each of the edges of the banner using a 1/8 inch seam allowance and then across the top of the banner using your pins as a guide for where to stitch. (See photo below.)
