Make It Yourself Pennant Banner

Here's another DIY project that I used for both my boys' 1st birthday and my friend's baby shower.  Yet another great way to save money on party decor and customize it to whatever colors you desire.

Here's what you need:
  • Wooden Pennant Form (I found mine at Michael's)
  • Scrapbook or Other Colorful Paper
  • Scissors
  • Hole Punch
  • String, Yarn, or Twine
  • Double Stick Tape or Glue Stick
  • White Paper
  • Round Object such as a Glass
  • Pinking Shears

Trace the pennant design on the back side of your paper.  I was able to fit 3 per piece of paper.  Cut them out with your scissors and use a hole punch to make the holes.

I used my computer to make letters for my sign because I am not at all artistic.  But you could definitely draw the letters yourself if you are good at that sort of thing. ;)  Trace around your letters with your glass, then cut out with the pinking shears or other decorative scissor.  Glue or tape the letters to your pennant pieces.

String your pennant pieces in order, alternating with putting the string in the front and back of the piece.  This helps the pieces to stay in place when you hang them.

And there you have it!  A custom pennant banner for whatever your next shin dig may be. :)
