After creating a bridal shower banner for my niece, I thought, “Why not make a pennant banner for every holiday?” Now, I’m an unstoppable, banner-making machine! Today, I’m going to tell you how to make a fall banner for your home with free SVG files for Cricut and Cameo users.

Directions for Making a Fall Banner

This free harvest pennant banner comes with three files intended for use on the Silhouette Cameo or Cricut Maker cutting machine:

  • Pennants – Harvest Pennant Banner – Pennants.svg
  • Main Letters – Harvest Pennant Banner – Letters.svg
  • Border Letters – Harvest Pennant Banner – Offset.svg

Note: For the Silhouette Cameo, you must have the software “Silhouette Studio” Designer Edition or above to access SVG files.

1. Cut the pennants for the banner

Once you receive your Silhouette Studio files, open the file titled “Fall Harvest Pennant Banner” to begin printing the flags, or pennants.

You can stick with one solid color or alternate patterns on your pennants (go on, get crazy). The file comes with four pennant shapes per 12 x 12 sheet, so feel free to delete some of the pennants if you only want to cut 1-2 per sheet.

Note: I used a 12 x 12-inch cutting mat and the same size of paper for this project.

2. Cut the letters for the pennant banner

In the photo below, I used the “Letters” file to cut the tan letter and the “Offset” file to cut the white letter background.

You’ll notice I added a bit of glam with some glitter cardstock behind the tan color simply by cutting a second set of the “Letters” file. Gotta have me some sparkle!

Tip: To simplify the banner, you can always ditch the “Offset” letters completely.

3. Apply mounting tape for best results

Now, I’ll admit I’m a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to styling my banners. It’s perfectly fine to use glue to attach the letters to the pennants.

However, I love, love, love using foam mounting tape to separate my layers because it gives more pop and depth.

First, cut small pieces of tape and place them strategically around the letters. Leave the green backing on the tape until you are ready to attach the next layer.

Given that my kids usually park themselves under my nose when I’m crafting, I always let them peel off the tape.

4. Assemble the fall pennant banner

After assembling the letters, attach them to your pennants and run a string or ribbon through the holes of your banner. If you like it, then you better put a string on it, as they say!

  1. Crissy, you are a woman of many crafting talents! The banners are adorable and your instructions make it all seem so easy! One of my daughters just got a Cricut for her birthday and she and I spent last Sunday Cricutting together! That was my first experience ever with the machine and I am amazed how easy it is to use! Thanks for sharing this project 🙂

    1. Cindy, thank you so much! That’s such a nice compliment. I’m excited for you and your daughter! Once you start using it, you won’t want to stop. There are TONS of fun projects you can do throughout the year. I’m so glad you stopped by!
