Winter is Here!

Ok, so we might be more than a little excited for Season 8 of Game of Thrones, and it seemed like the perfect opportunity for a little yard decoration. This is how I made a Game of Thrones inspired banner, using upholstery fabric, spray paint, and fabric rivets and grommets.

Step 1: Trace and Cut the Letters

To start, I looked up the Game of Thrones font using Google Image Search and sketched out the letter I needed. First laying out the letters on manila file folders in pencil first, the main lettering is 7 inches tall, and after penciled in I darkening the cut lines with a permanent marker to make them easier to see.

With the lettering complete, cut out the stencils with a craft knife. I wanted these to be negative stencils, so the interior of each letter is the important part, not the outline - remember to be careful to not cut through or tear the letters.
