To make the banner, I simply tore fabric into approximately one inch thick pieces.
I then cut several pieces of fabric and ribbon into approximately twelve inch length strips.
From there, I just tied the pieces onto a long piece of twine, arranging the pieces in somewhat of a pattern.
I did not measure anything. What makes this look whimsical is that it is perfectly imperfect. I just eyeballed the width and length of the pieces. Perfection is not the goal here. Getting the banner completed in 15 minutes or less was my goal!
Lastly, I nailed the banner above the crib and under a wooden monogram that I spray painted gold.
I really like the simplicity of this banner and how it looks in combination with the monogram over the crib. It makes a great focal point on the wall and helps tie the room together by using all of the different colors and fabrics from the room.
