This starry night camping banner may look detailed but it’s actually a beginner-friendly project! Before getting started, you must have basic knowledge of your sewing machine for the banner itself, or you can always buy a premade banner.  You will also need to know how to whip stitch, straight stitch, backstitch, and stitch french knots — all of which you can find in our embroidery guide.

Along with the banner pattern, you will find the pattern for all of the felt pieces to create your camping scene in our printable template and SVG file below.

Sweet Starry Dreams

Designed by Krista, this starry night camping banner features the most serene camping spot! This would be so sweet to hang up in a kid’s bedroom or playroom. And you can even set up an actual spot for them to “camp out” in with our play tent and campfire.

This project involves a few different crafting techniques and materials. So if you get stuck at any point, just reach out and we’ll do our best to help!

How to Make a Starry Night Camping Banner

  1. Gather your craft tools and materials. Then download the pattern below.
  2. Print, cut out, and tape together the paper pattern for the banner. Cut out canvas according to the pattern. You can use a canvas or heavy-weight cotton in dark blue or black to make the banner.
  3. Fold the sides and bottom edges over 1/2″ and sew with matching thread. Fold the top edge down 1″ and sew the edge to make a tube for the dowel to slide in. Iron the banner.
  4. Cut out the felt pieces according to the pattern.
