DIY St. Patrick’s Day Banner

With St. Patty’s Day right around the corner, I thought I would share a quick project to help you all get in the Irish mood.  How about a nice little Shamrock Banner?!  It’s quick & easy and no sewing to boot (well maybe a little).  We all need a little project like this every once in a while.

Gather your materials

Cut out your flag template and trace the number of flags needed, I did seven, on to the heat n’ bond.IMG_1535IMG_1534

Iron heat n’ bond flags to wrong side of  the cream fabric following the directions on the package.IMG_1537

Cut out top portion of flags, peel off paper backing and iron on to second piece of fabric. Cut out very close to the to the pieces that were just ironed on.  You now have seven flags.IMG_1538

Trace seven of the outer shamrock and seven of the inner shamrock on to the heat n’ bond.  I found it easier to cut out the group of inner and outer and iron on the corresponding fabric before cutting out the shamrocks.

Position on the shamrock in the middle of the flag.  Make sure you like the placement before ironing down. Continue for the remaining flags.

Using a small hole punch, gently punch a hole on either  top side of the flag.

Add your button embellishments.  I used a thicker piece of crochet thread and tied a knot on the back to keep the button on.  You could also just hot glue them if you would like.

Using a 2-4” pieces of ribbon,   tie flag pieces together.  On then flags cut a longer piece and make a loop for hanging.
