Pennants With Pizazz!

A pennant is a long, tapering flag usually in the shape of a narrow triangle. And I got a chance to make these last night at church with the girls in my Daisies group (kindergarten girls). Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to snap photos of their creations as time was running short & snack-time was upon us. Cupcakes were to be eaten. Sugary juice was to be sipped.

This is not a step-by-step tutorial, because these pennants are SO easy to make you don't need my crafty hand to hold yours through any instructions.

All you do is cut a narrow triangle from felt---in whatever size you wish---& glue on scraps of felt in the designs you'd like using tacky glue. That's all! (My pennants were 10" at the tallest point & 20" long.)
Zoey made the yellow one, decorated with puppies & their doggie bowls. One girl made an airplane on her pennant. There were also lots of hearts, more cupcakes & ice cream sundaes.

We made ours for hanging. A simple tack on the wall will do the trick. But, you could also attach a wooden dowel for a hand-held pennant.

I decided that pennants will also be a part of my birthday party kits for sale in the shop---as soon as I get them completed. They're perfect for a party!

Cut out letter-shapes & create personalized pennants with names. In addition to the felt, use yarn, ribbons, pom-poms, buttons or other crafty bits to add more pizazz to your pennants!

Have lots of crafty pennant-like FUN!!!
