We are always looking for fun easy projects to work on between our larger quilt projects. With new Honey Buns on the horizon from Moda Fabrics, we knew the perfect project to try them on – a fabric banner! A Honey Bun is a super cute precut from Moda Fabrics, it’s forty 1.5″ x width of fabric strips from a single fabric collection. For this no-sew project we are using Fig Tree’s All Hallow’s Eve fabric collection, to create super easy Halloween decorations. This is a fantastic one-hour DIY project for the whole family – the more hands, the merrier!
- One All Hallow’s Eve Honey Bun (or 40 – 1.5” x WOF strips)
- Twine or ribbon
- Rotary cutter and/or fabric scissors
Measure your space and cut the twine or ribbon to fit the space. We cut our twine at 2 1/2 yards, so we could use the entire Honey Bun. This gave us plenty of room to work with, and was a great length to drape across a mantel.
Using a rotary cutter or scissors cut off the selvage from the 1.5”x WOF strips. Then cut the strips in half, making each strip about 20” long.
Starting in the middle of your twine strip, tie a piece of the fabric to the twine. To tie the fabric on the twine fold it in half under the twine. Then, pull the two ends through the loop at the top, above the twine.
Moving out from the center continue tying the fabric to the twine. You can arrange the fabric in a pattern or “random” – we are going with random.
We used about 16 strips per 10” inches of twine, so our finished banner is about 48″ long since we used the entire Honey Bun.
Just keep tying the fabric on the twine until you have run out of fabric. Hang up and enjoy!
