Banners, Buntings, Garlands, & Pennants!

Way back in 2014, I was busy behind the scenes making lots of things from felt, card and other crafty supplies. Now here we are in 2016 and I can show you what I was making... yay!

The projects I was working on are part of a new book called Banners, Buntings, Garlands & Pennants. It's published by Lark Crafts and comes from the same team who brought you 'Tis the Season to Be Felt-y, Felt-o-ween and lots of other titles.

It's lovely to finally see the finished book, and to see all the awesome projects in it. They're all so fun and colourful!

As you might have guessed from the title, the book includes lots of different designs for making banners, bunting, garlands and pennants. There are 40 beginner-friendly projects to choose from: some made with paper & card some with fabric & felt and others with crafty supplies ranging from yarn to shrink plastic to seashells.

Each project has step-by-step instructions, and there's a short guide at the front of the book that covers all the techniques you'll need to know.

Wanna see my projects? :)

I made Mini Gumdrops...

... Yarn Tassels...


... Rainbow Bobbins (perfect for a craft room!)...


... a Paper Clothesline Garland...

... an Autumn Garland of felt leaves and pinecones...


... and some Cross-Stitch Hearts.

Banners, Buntings, Garlands & Pennants is out now! It's available from Amazon USA, Amazon UK, the Book Depository, and many other bookshops. Please note: The Amazon and Book Depository links in this post are affiliate links.

When I went to put my copy of the book on the shelf, I realised it's the tenth book I've worked on with the folks at Lark Crafts. It's kind of awesome seeing them all together! Maybe you have some of these on your bookshelf too?

and, of course Banners, Buntings, Garlands & Pennants

I have Fa La La La Felt, Heart-Felt Holidays and 'Tis the Season to Be Felt-y. And I love them. There are a great inspiration for me :)

All the projects you contributed are cute, but the gumdrops with the seedbead "sugar" sprinkles and the thread bobbins are my favourites :)

kejtiss - it's always lovely seeing projects you've made from my designs! xx

Katrin - I hope you get the chance to add some more to your crafty library :)

Aurelia - thanks! The bobbins are one of my faves too, they'd be such a great addition to the decor in my studio :)
