October Overhauling - No Sew Fabric Banner

I have been working on decorations for my Bestie Carolyn's son's Christening for weeks!  
So here are the centerpieces!  
Pinwheel Topiaries!
Pin It
That match the Giant J's!
And of course, the Christening for my little buddy is tomorrow.. so in the meantime, I used some of the leftover fabric and some supplies that I ALWAYS have on hand to make this sweet Christening Banner:
Steam a Seam
Paper (for templates)
Mini Clothespins
(optional) Fabric Pinwheels with buttons

I started by using my Handy Dandy Cricut to cut out two triangles One large and One smaller.   
Then the words "God Bless Jared"

Next I put my Steam a Seam on the fabric and cut my smaller triangles.
Then I cut my larger triangles.
Then I put the steam a seam on another color fabric and cut out my letters.
Next I ironed them together.
Once they were ironed together I strung them.
Then I glued some of my pinwheels to clothespins to put between the words.
Last I hung the banner across the twine with mini clothespins and added all of my leftover pinwheels with hot glue.
Now I am off to clean up the CRAFTERMATH and then to the fields for some soccer and football!
Happy Saturday!
