How to make a sequin banner

Welcome guests to your party with a sequined banner hanging over the entryway. Rustic-looking burlap is a neutral backing for any sequin color desired. The silver and white combination in the tutorial works well for a wedding shower. For a baby shower, choose pastel yellow, green, pink or blue, or alternate any two colors.
If you want a larger banner, use wider burlap to create bigger triangles. For those who don't like the burlap look, cut triangles out of black fabric, and use the white and silver sequins or neon sequins to make the banner stand out.

Instructions
1. Unroll 6 inches of burlap. Measure 1 1/2 half inches in along the bottom. Cut at an upward angle from that point to the top corner of the burlap.
2. Measure 3 inches in along the top of the burlap. Cut at an upward angle from the 1 1/2-inch bottom point to the 3-inch measurement on the top. This creates a 3-inch triangle. Cut as many 3-inch triangles as needed for the desired length of the banner.
3. Glue a horizontal line of white sequins across each triangle on half of the triangles, 1/4 inch down from the top. Trim the excess sequins.
4. Glue three more lines of white sequins equidistant from one another, going toward the bottom point. Trim the excess sequins.
5. Line up the triangles, alternating plain and sequined ones.
6. Measure out a length of silver sequins that spans the banner length plus 6 inches at each end. Glue the silver sequins across the tops of all triangles, leaving 6 inches at each end. Let the glue dry.
