We all know who run’s the ship decorate accordingly. This simple but elegant felt bunting spells out CAPTAIN in naval flags. It’s super easy to put together especially with the help of the bunting templates below.  This easy DIY felt banner looks great in any ocean themed kids room, nursery or really anywhere you’re looking for some classic wow factor.

Lay out the pieces as shown and sew down.

C- White felt background, 2 Blue felt stripes, 1 Red felt stripe. Sew down with matching thread and running stitch.

A – White felt background,  Blue felt flag base, cut shapes as shown and sew down with matching thread and running stitch. You will need to make two of these.

P- Blue felt background, 1 White rectangle. Stitch down.

T-  White felt background Red and Blue felt stripes on either side. (We hung this one red side up. )

I- Yellow felt background, Black felt circle in center.

N – White felt background, Blue felt rectangles laid out as shown and stitched down with matching thread and a running stitch.

Assemble the felt garland:

To assemble cut small slits into either side of your completed felt flags. Cut twine into 6″ lengths and knot on each side as sewn. Threading this way allows the bunting to drape more freely yet lay completely flat against the wall.

Tie loops onto the ends of either side of the felt bunting and hang.

Happy Crafting!
