Today I’ve got a fun easy to make (with even a NO SEW option!) DIY pendant banner.  Pendant banners are great for adding spice to any space.  For this DIY pendant banner made from fabric, I used all Indigo & Aster fabric by Bari J. for Art Gallery Fabrics.

First of all you need to choose your fabrics.  Using coordinating prints from a line of fabric is always a great idea because you are assured of keeping a cohesive look across the pendant banner.

Have fun picking out trims and embellishments to add flair to your pendant banner.  Using a variety of trims, but on the same fabrics helps tie the banner all together.  Or you could mix it up and use different trims on different pendants across the banner.

Next you need to cut out your pendants.  To use our exact same size pendant, you can use this FREE cut file which works for fabric, cardstock, vinyl, leather, and more.  If you have a cutting machine like the Cricut Maker, you can use our cut file and have the pendants cut out by machine!

We chose to fray stop the edges of each pendant with Dritz Fray Check.  In time, the edges of the fabric pendants could fray if they move around a lot.  Since we wanted to keep a clean edge look, we chose to fray stop the edges.

Now it’s time for the fun part!  Grab the trims and embellishments you chose, and start playing!  We used beads, rick rack trim, lace, pom poms, feather trim, and seam tape.  Have fun and embellish away!  Cut each trim to fit the width of the pendant, and use original tacky glue to adhere the trims to each pendant.

The final step is to attach all your embellished pendants together.  We chose to use crocheted trim for one pendant banner, and lace for the other.  Sew or glue (for the NO SEW option) each pendant evenly spaced across the length of lace, ribbon or trim you’re using.  We found 1 inch to be the perfect spacing for our pendant banner.  If you sew the pendants to the banner, use a zig zag stitch across both the top and bottom of the lace/ribbon, or trim to keep it from rolling up when the pendant banner is hung.
