Create your pennant banner in 4 easy steps!

The most enthusiastic do-it-yourselfers work on a new DIY project every weekend for their children’s bedroom or playroom. But others appreciate a simple project that can be used for a long time (so they don’t have to start over every weekend). I have a really quick little project that may satisfy both seasoned and part-time do-it-yourselfers: a pennant banner!

The project can be summed up in 4 very simple steps and only requires the following material:

  • Ribbon
  • Scrapbooking paper or cardboard
  • Hot glue
  • 2 small finishing nails or thumb tacks
  • #1 : Start by choosing a few sheets of scrapbooking paper or solid coloured cardboard. I suggest you mix colours or textures for a more interesting effect. Don’t be afraid to mix patterns. Be daring and you’ll achieve extraordinary results! ;)

    #2 : Cut sheets of scrapbooking paper or cardboard in triangles. I recommend a format of about 4.5’’ X 6.5’’ X 6.5’’, depending on the wall to which you’ll attach your banner.

    #3 : Determine the desired length of the banner and cut the ribbon you have chosen in advance. (For better results, it should match the paper you used for the pennants). Don’t forget that the banner will be curved, so you must provide for more ribbon.

    #4 :: Decide on the spacing between pendants (here we have maintained a 4’’ space). Then glue the pennants to the ribbon with hot glue. Very important: when you glue the pennants to the ribbon, the section of you pennant you don’t want to see must face the ceiling.

    This simple little project will age well with your decor.

    You can even use this type of banner for a party.

    You see, it was easy to make, and you can use it efficiently! Tell me if you liked this project and where you installed it in your home. I would really like to see your achievements! Share them on our Facebook page!
