diy felt xmas banner | make the yuletide very, very gay

DIY This: Make the Yuletide Gay Felt Banner
I have been, to some capacity, ready for Christmas since November 1st. On an entirely different level, I suppose I am always ready for Christmas. Anyways, this will be my first year working the entire holiday season at Curbly, and with needing to stay ahead on content, it's been all-Christmas-all-the-time for more than a month now. At home, the transition is slower. Not too slow, though. I made this felt banner a little while ago, and have really excited to hang it. Keep reading to make your own!
Materials needed to make this felt banner
To make this banner, you'll need:
  • Felt in various colors
  • "Make the Yuletide Gay" printable template (page 1; page 2)
  • A pencil and pen
  • Fabric glue or hot glue (truth be told, I was too impatient for fabric glue and ended up hot glueing everything)
  • Scissors
  • A dowel or long stick
  • Baker's twine

Queer Christmas Felt Banner | Step 1
Print out the template (page one here, page two here), and cut out each letter and shape. With the letters facing right-side down, trace their shape on the felt. For lighter-colored felt, use a pencil. For darker felt, use a pen. Cut out each letter.
Queer Christmas Felt Banner | Step 2
Align the lettering on a large piece of felt. Glue each letter and shape in place. 
Queer Christmas Felt Banner | Step 3
On the back of the banner, fold the top down over the dowel, and glue down. Tie a piece of baker's twine to each edge of the dowel. Hang, and get merry.

Queers + crafts + Christmas = This
I'm pretty happy with how this banner turned out. If you've been around for a while, you know I appreciate a good play on words (seen here and here). Who doesn't? Happy holidays, gang.
