DIY: Make a “Meh” Banner

According to Wiki, “Meh” is an interjection, often used as an expression of indifference or boredom. In this age of social media, of people trying to fish for compliments or feed their hunger for validation at every turn, there are times when a good, heartfelt “Meh” is the only thing that can keep you sane.

Here a tutorial on how to make a “Meh” banner or flag. This is an easy stenciling and sewing project that you can do in less than an hour. I’ve made two and to be honest, I plan to make more; I have a lot of cynical friends.

Materials & tools: freezer paper (with Meh drawn or printed), cutter/x-acto knife,  canvas fabric (down arrow or a combination of a pennant and a square flag shape with a width of 10 inches), printed fabric (same size as your canvas fabric), scissors, cutting pad, pencil, iron, sponge, paint, rod (12 inches), twine



Easy, right? Now we combine our collective mental powers to influence the people over at Facebook to add “Meh”  alongside the “Like” and “Comment” links.

    I love this idea. I would probably want it to say SMILE because I love to spread smiles!

    I love the idea of a ‘Meh.’ sign. It would give people a warning when I’m feeling… ummmm… Meh. And right on, Facebook needs to get on the Meh button!! 😉

    My daughter says this a lot! I might make it with MEH on one side and something else on the other. You know like an open or closed sign.
