I got about 4 yards of the fabric and if you keep an eye out, you can almost always find Joann coupons for 50% off. I used mine and only spent about $40.00. I also got 1 yard of a coordinating fabric to throw into the mix. You’ll need to get some heavy duty thread to do the project, too.
Now you are ready to hang! Using the same holes and screws that came with the swing set, my husband and I drilled/screwed in the new fabric. It’s been holding up great so far, but I think I may unscrew and take it down in the winter to keep it looking fresh and just put it back up next Spring. Only takes about 10 minutes to attach everything.
I made a bunting banner to go across the top of the swing area to tie it in with the club house side. It’s sewn on a thin rope and tacked on the wood beam.
Last, but not least – a sign to personalize it. Spray painted an old board and then let Ruby do the rest! After watching the Little Rascals, she decided her clubhouse should say “No boys allowed!” But then she re-thought it and added in: “except Daddy”. Love it!
Wishing you all a fun summer! If you love this idea, but don’t sew…write me! I make custom party decorations and decor in my shop! Would love to make you one! See: Pretti Mini on Etsy!
If you make your own, share with me! Would love to see how yours turned out!
