I've made pennant banners before, here's the Candy Corn pennant I made for Halloween. For St. Patrick's day, I made this burlap one. I think I may eventually make one for every holiday!
Here's what you need:
burlap (I used one yard)
I started by cutting the word 'LUCK' and a clover out of paper to use as a stencil for the banner. In High School art, I learned how to cut out letters by folding paper various ways, it has come in handy on many occasions.
Then I cut a pennant out of paper. Basically, this is just a triangle, with a two inch tab at the top. Using this, I traced the pennant on the burlap using my vanishing marker and cut-out six pennants.
Using my vanishing marker again, I traced around each letter and the clover onto the pennants. I made two clover pennants.
Then I just started painting the letters and clovers with green paint. I used acrylic paint because I just have a lot of it, but you could also use fabric paint. I laid wax paper down underneath where I was painting, so the pennants wouldn't stick to the table.
Once the paint dried, I folded the tab down and ironed a crease.
Then I used my glue gun and clued the twine down the middle of each crease. I didn't leave much space between each pennant, maybe 1/4 inch or so. Be sure to leave enough twine on each end to tie a loop for hanging.
Since the banner is already hot glued to the twine, you can skip this last step if you want. Using green thread, I sewed each flap down using my machine.
And here's the finished banner! Happy St. Patrick's Day!!
