I made these little pennants for a St. Patrick's day decoration using up some old scrapbook paper I had on hand. I saw these Valentine's ones on Two Junk Chix blog, I made mine slightly different and a little more simple. I like them so much, I may keep them up year round or reuse for another holiday.
I started by just drawing some pennants on cardstock and cutting them out. I made 3 different size pennants.
Next, I traced the pennants onto the scrapbook paper and cut it out.
Using hot glue, I glued a dowel rod to each (of varying length). I also glued the cardstock pennant shapes to the back, since some of my scrapbook paper was not thick.
I decided to go ahead an make a couple of pom-poms and glue them on dowel rods to add to the arrangement.
Here was the vase before.
And here it is with the pennants...not looking so good.
I cut some floral foam and stuck it inside the milk bottle. Then arranged the pennants...much bettter!
I thought about decorating them with shamrocks and such, but ultimately I decided to keep them simple. I can re-use these for Christmas or other holidays by switching out the pom-poms.
