This sewing craft will put dreams in heads and above beds. Every night before bed, the bed banner art craft can be admired to ensure good dreams throughout the night.

What You'll Need:

  • 36x48-inch piece of felt
  • Fabric glue
  • Two 36-inch wood dowels with 1/2-inch diameter
  • 4 large wood beads
  • Fabric and felt scraps
  • Blunt scissors
  • Yarn or string

How to Make Bed Banner:

Step 1: Fold both shorter ends of the felt over about 2 inches, and glue in place to form pockets. Insert a dowel through each pocket, then glue the beads on each end.

Step 2: Cut pieces of fabric and felt to make a picture. Do you dream of being an astronaut, a ballet dancer, or a basketball player? Cut out shapes to match your dreams.

Step 3: Apply a thin film of glue on the back of each cutout shape. Assemble the pieces on the felt banner to make your picture.

Step 4: Tie a piece of yarn or string to the ends of the top dowel. Hang the banner above your bed.
