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:
#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.
