Candy Corn Banner Thermoweb 1

Boo!   Did I scare you?  It that time of year of little ghosts and goblins.

Hi, again!  It’s Amy from  Sew Incredibly Crazy bringing you a super easy and cute candy corn banner that doesn’t require a lot of time.

 For supplies you will need:

cc banner 1

Three strip of fabric:

2.5″ x width of fabric  – orange, yellow, and white

I choose Riley Blake gingham for my Candy Corn Banner.

6 1/2″ x width of fabric for the backing of your banner

 HeatnBond® Lite  – cut a piece at 6 1/2″ x the width of your fabric, you will have to piece one together

iCraft® Deco Foil™ Hot Melt Adhesive

iCraft® DECO FOIL™ Black


Liquid Fabric Fuse™ Adhesive

First, sew your fabric strips together. I sewed them in the color order of a candy corn.

Iron your  HeatnBond® Lite  to the wrong side of the fabric.

cc banner 13

Remove the paper backing and iron to the wrong side of your backing fabric.

The HeatnBond® Lite layer adds some substance to your fabric.

Trim the top and the bottom edge of your fabric with your pinking shears or rotary cutter.

You don’t have to use a pinking blade, but I do love the look of it.

Get your ruler, most have a 30 degree line on them.  You will be using this angle.

I cheated and used Dresden ruler.  It made cutting them a snap.  I just rotated the ruler.

After cutting out all my pendants, which should be 11 (you might end up with 12).

I made a straight stitch with orange.  You would not have to sew this edge if you used HeatnBond® Ultrahold.

Next, find you favorite lettering and make sure you like the size.

Trace them onto your sheet of iCraft® Deco Foil™ Hot Melt Adhesive, bumpy side down.

Cut out your letters and iron them onto your pendants.

I put the “or” on a single pendant.

cc banner 10

Cut your foil to size and iron it on to the adhesive.

cc banner 8

Make sure that when you are ironing on the foil that

you put a little pressure into the seams with your iron.

cc banner 5

Let the foil cool completely before removing.

I just love the sheen of the iCraft® DECO FOIL™ Black.

cc banner 7

I used grommets to add in the corners of the pendants.

You could sew a ribbon or bias tape across the top of the

banner instead.

cc banner 4

Add the grommets it the top corners.  Use ribbon or jute to tie the pendants together.

I used 9″ pieces of jute for the centers and 28″ pieces to use on the ends.

After, I was finished with my bows, I dabbed a bit of  Fabric Fuse into the knot to prevent

it from being untied.

And there you have a cute little banner to add to your spooktacular décor.

    This is such a cute project. I am glad I found the tutorial on how to use this product. I have a special challenge quilt to make and it involves gold. This would work well but I will have to check out how and what I could cut for the graphics with my Scan N Cut. Any ideas?
