What you’ll need:
- Stars & Stripes Pennant Kit
- Scissors and X-ACTO knife
- 100% wool felt in red, white, and blue
- Granule typeface by Corey Holms & Calgary Script by Ale Paul
- Mod Podge
- Embroidery thread and needle
- Fabric scissors
- Spray starch (optional)
Begin by cutting out the pre-printed designs with a sharp pair of fabric scissors. We started with “USA,” which will go on the red flag. (You may need to use an X-ACTO knife for some of the letters.)
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.
When you’re finished with both pennants, spray the starch over them (if desired) to create a stiffer finish, and let dry. Pin or tape your pennants to the wall or glue wooden dowels to the back so you can wave your pennant with pride.
We wouldn’t forget about our fellow Canadians. The O Canada Pennant Kit is also available.
