Felt banners are one of my favorite things to make. So, I made a Happy Easter banner to decorate for spring.

I used felt in pretty pastel colors, but you can use any colors you want. A monochromatic banner would also be cute.

Supplies Needed:

Notes About Supplies

*Cricut Maker

Unfortunately, felt can only be cut with a Cricut Maker because it needs a rotary blade. I’ve included a PDF version to use for hand-cutting. Just print, trace, and cut.

**Fabric Grip Mat

Felt makes the fabric mat fuzzy, so it’s best to have a mat designated for felt only.

***Embroidery Floss and Needle

You can use fabric glue instead of embroidery floss if you want. I love the look of embroidered felt, so I used a blanket stitch to attach the felt letters.

It’s not necessary to match the colors exactly. The colors will blend as long as the embroidery floss is close enough.

How to Cut the Felt Letters

I originally made the cut files with holes in each letter, but it ripped the felt. The version below doesn’t have holes. Use a hole punch to make holes instead.
