Shabby Chic Banner – USA Flag

If your front door is wanting to wave a flag but you still have an Easter wreath up, then you gotta make this shabby chic banner inspired by the US flag! This banner goes together really easily with ribbon and a few basic craft supplies. I used Craft Attitude to do an image transfer but you can skip that and use some patriotic fabric from JoAnn or Hobby Lobby, which you can get just about 1/4 yard of fabric for a couple dollars. Check out this tutorial below and the supply list to make this hanging ribbon banner for your front door:

I shopped at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores for this month's challenge, taking advantage of a 50% off sale on remnant fabric. Here's how it all stacked up:

Purchased Supplies:

Bleached Muslin Remnant, 3/4 Yard, less 50% = $1.12

Wood Gold Solid White Poly, 1/2 Yard, less 50% = $2.19

Craft Dowels, 7/16″ x 12″ = $0.99

Sales Tax 8% = $0.34

Total Spent at Jo-Ann = $4.64

Craft Attitude 4th of July Quilt Banner by Jennifer Priest

I printed a vintage patriotic image from the Graphics Fairy onto Craft Attitude Adhesive Sheets, 8-Sheet, 8.5 by 11-Inch film and then used the image as a pattern to do some free motion quilting on the banner. And then I tore the top layer of fabric to reveal the printed image underneath and to give the banner a worn and tattered look. I used Aladine Pigment IZINK 15ml-Gold to add a bit of gilding and aged color to the ribbon, wood, and fabric elements.

So, without further ado, here is HOW I made this tattered, vintage style banner:
