What you’ll need: 

  • Pizza Pennant Kit
  • Scissors and X-ACTO knife
    or
  • 100% wool felt
  • Granule typeface, by Corey Holms
  • Mod Podge
  • Embroidery thread and needle
  • Fabric scissors
  • Paintbrush
  • Spray starch (optional)

STEP ONE
Begin by cutting out the pre-printed designs with a sharp pair of fabric scissors. We started with the red pepperoni that will go on the yellow pizza. (You may need to use an X-ACTO knife for some of the letters.)

STEP TWO
Arrange your felt pieces on each of the pennants until you’re happy with the placement, and begin gluing. We used a paintbrush to brush on the Mod Podge and glued each piece  the glue dries fast so it’s best to work quickly.

STEP THREE
Once you’re done gluing, trim off any excess felt hanging off the side of the pennant.

STEP FOUR
Thread your needle with embroidery thread and begin stitching around the edges of the felt. This reinforces the glue and adds nice texture to your pennant.

STEP FIVE
Spray the starch over the pennants (if desired) to create a stiffer finish, and let dry. Looks delicious, right? Pin or tape your pennants to the wall and it’s time to party. Pizza party, that is.
