Super Easy No-Sew Pennant Banner


 A few of you asked about the pennant banner in yesterday's post about my wreath made from cupcake liners.

I originally made this banner last November for my oldest daughter's tea party birthday party.  It only took about 10 minutes to make and I have a feeling it will make an appearance at many girly birthday parties to come!

Here is my super simple, super imperfect way to make a pennant banner garland thingy.

You will need:
assorted fabric scraps
double sided craft tape
scissors
ribbon in the length you want your banner to be

Cut your triangles.  I cut my first one free hand and then use it as a template for all of the others.



Add a strip of double sided craft tape to the back of each triangle.


Remove paper off of the tape and stick the triangle to your length of ribbon.



Continue until your ribbon is full!  Now it should look something like this:



Of course, you don't have to use fabric scraps for this.  You could use scrapbook paper, book pages, anything you want!

I made one today using moss and burlap!


Is there anything more festive than a pennant banner?

  3. What a great idea. I'm making a banner for a baby shower that I'm hosting next week but planned to sew it. Not anymore! The burlap and moss version looks great.

  10. I've wanted to make one for ages but haven't had an occasion for it. I wonder if hubby would notice if I just put one up on the mantle for kicks...

  11. Oh I love this idea. Looks like something the kids would be able to help me with. Might even make up plain coloured paper ones and have them decorate each with paint or stickers.

  13. I have left over burlap (old coffee bean bag) and moss sheet (from JoAnn Fabric's) that I didn't know what to do with. Thank you for the terrific idea!
