To measure your fold for the dowel position your dowel a 1/2 of an inch from the top and then fold the canvas over and mark, pin or write down the measurements so you will know where to seal your closure in step 6.

Step 7

Now take your twine and start from the right side of the dowel close to the canvas and with your hot glue gun make one straight line down and wrap the twine around the dowel and with each wrap secure with hot glue once done on the right side extend your twine out and start on the left side of the dowel repeating the same steps.

Step 8

Now to the fun stuff you are going to arrange your self adhesive felt letters and spell out your message, whether it’s a family saying, your special saying, words of inspiration to get you moving or like I made my DIY Banner to greet guests at my home with some of my favorite languages and the languages I have a connection to. Once you have chosen your message remove letters from backing to attach and they are pretty secure the letters, however, to add that extra security I have chosen to hot glue my letters.
