DIY Gryffindor House Banner (Harry Potter)

Courtney Tomesch DIY Gryffindor House Banner (Harry Potter)

Here is how I made a DIY Gryffindor Banner! Note this DIY will take longer than 5 minutes. Just depends on how fast you are at hand sewing. I’d suggest watching Harry Potter while you do this DIY!


Things you need:
Scarlet Felt http://amzn.to/2rxouDz
Gryffindor Font Template http://www.dafont.com/harry-p.font
Fabric Scissors http://amzn.to/2sMFpWE
Sewing Machine (Optional) http://amzn.to/2rKN73F
Sewing Needles http://amzn.to/2sQB84t


  • Trace the banner template onto scarlet felt. Make sure to trace one out for every letter in the house name.
  • Cut out the banner flags
  • Cut out the “Gryffindor” font template and trace them backward onto the gold felt. Then cut them out
  • Take one banner flag and fold the top down about 1 inch and pin it to create a loop for the twine. I used a broken clothes pin measured to an inch to make sure everything is even. Do for every banner
  • Sew a straight line along the edge. You can use a sewing machine or hand sew.
  • Remove pins and cut apart.
  • Place the gold letters in the center of the banner flag and pin in place.
  • Take your needle and matching gold thread, tie a few knots at the end and whipstitch the letter to the banner flag.

  • Whipstitch all letters to the banner flags.
  • Once you are done stitching the letters to the banners, lay them out in the correct order. Take the twine and tie to a safety pin or bobby pin to help push the twine threw the loops. Thread all banners with the twine
  • Measure out about 13-14 inches on each side of the banner flags and tie a loop at the ends.
  • Use push pins or nails and hang the loops on your wall where ever you want to hang your banner. Center and adjust the flags.
