DIY Pennant Banner

DIY pennant banners for the New England Patriots

This DIY pennant banner is SO easy to do if you have some boob tube to catch up on because it’s a little reptitive and a whole lotta ba-ba-ba-boring. It’s absolutely worth the extra charm, but uh… don’t say I didn’t warn you. Mmmmkay?

Cutting card stock for DIY pennant banners

For the Broncos, I cut the blue card stock into 3 inch squares and the orange into 2 inch squares. For the Patriots, I cut 3 inch, 2 inch, and 1 inch squares in each color because they are a tri-color team.

If you don’t own a self healing mat and a rotary cutter, I can’t be your friend. I kid. I will be your friend but I won’t come over for a craft party because my life was forever changed the moment I was given my babies. And not like forever changed as in ripped vagina, more along the lines of efficiency if-ya-know-what-I-mean!

This goes without saying, but I will say it anyway, the point should be in the middle of the square. (e.g. The point on the 3 inch square would be at the 1.5 inch mark.) Duh, right? Agreed!

Note- Don’t worry about minor imperfections because nobody will notice unless you invite a bunch of OCD friends (read: me) to your party.

I ended up using my fancy craft glue, which is a waste of money, because it was already out from another project and I didn’t want to walk upstairs. I totally would have used a glue stick if I would have been able to get up from the chair indent I made from the previous steps in this craft.

Kidding. I’m just THAT lazy.
