- Time:1-1/2 hours + dry time
1Cut a 10" piece of dowel, paint it and two dowel caps Bright Yellow, and then let dry.
2Paint the letter Primary Blue. When it's dry, brush it with Iridescent glitter glue and let it dry completely.
3Arrange buttons in a design you'd like or as shown. Cut the shanks off of the buttons with the wire cutters and, using dimensional fabric paints, draw an oval or circle on the letter to fit under each button. Carefully press the buttons into the shapes you just drew with hot glue.
4Fill in around the letter making teardrop shapes, flowers, and dots as shown. Add rhinestones in and around dimensional fabric paint dots. Allow it to dry thoroughly.
5Measure 1" up from the center of one 9" end of Purple foam sheet and cut in from each end to that center point as shown. This will be the bottom of your banner. Then, cut a 4" x 9" piece of Orange foam. Wrap one end around the dowel, leaving about 2" on the other end. Cut ½" slits across end for fringe.
6Glue the letter on the banner, and then glue the Orange piece to the top of the banner as shown. Glue dowel caps to the ends of the dowel. Cut a 24" piece of curling ribbon and tie it to the ends of dowel, not the dowel caps, for a hanger.
7Lastly, cut two 20" pieces of curling ribbon. Tie them to the ends of the dowel and curl.
