DIY: Stars & Stripes Pennant

What you’ll need:

STEP ONE

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.)

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

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

STEP FOUR
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.
