tufted popsicle banner

Create a one-of-a-kind rug banner for your next party or for fun summer décor!

Step 1

Assemble your frame matching letters on poles to letters on corner pieces.

Step 2

Clamp frame to your table.

Step 3

Stretch cloth on assembled frame and secure at the corners using frame pegs. Stretch cloth tight.

Step 4

Snap frame rods onto the poles to continue securing cloth. Pull cloth as tight as possible.

Step 5

Click here to download and print the design to be tufted.
TIP: You can also freehand draw a pattern or use a projector to project a pattern onto the cloth. Whichever you decide, you will need to mirror the image since tufting will be worked from the back of the project. For larger designs, tape together the printed tiled design together to form complete pattern.

Step 6

Tape design to the cloth on the back side of the frame, which is the front of your project.

Step 7

Trace six images of the popsicle onto tufting cloth with a marker. Leave a little space between each popsicle; then, remove pattern.

Step 8

Thread yarn into tuft tool using threader included with tool. Thread through two strands at a time for faster, thicker tufting.

Step 9

Start at bottom of project. Press tuft tool firmly against prepared tufting cloth so needle is through cloth and front plate is flush with cloth. Hold down start switch, apply pressure, and move tool up the project. Release start switch to stop tufting and remove tool from cloth. Return to bottom of design and tuft again working in rows and moving from bottom to top each time.
Change yarns and continue tufting until all popsicles are tufted.

Step 10

Once tufting is complete pull any stray threads from project.

Step 11

Spread tufting adhesive over back of each tufted popsicle using the putty knife. Allow to dry completely, until no longer tacky (about 8 hours).

Step 12

Once dry, remove project from frame and trim around design leaving a 1" - 2" [2.5 cm – 5.1 cm] border of tufting cloth around each popsicle.

Step 13

Cut reliefs along at corners and curves for easier folding. Fold border toward back of each popsicle and secure with hot glue. Continue until all excess is folded and secured to back.

Step 14

Trim a piece of Easy™ Tuft backing to fit popsicle shapes and adhere to back of rug using spray adhesive.

Step 15

To give a clean, finished look, cover edges with twill tape using hot glue.
TIP: Since these mini rugs will become a banner you could back them with regular craft felt if desired.

Step 16

Use rug carving shears to trim and smooth top and edges of each popsicle. You can also use trimmers to create dimension and grooves if desired.

Step 17

Use hot glue to adhere popsicles in rainbow order to a length of wired jute twine.
