for the 4th of july i made these easy peasy pennants to hang across my mantle.
i was inspired to make these after i made them for kate’s shower.
i always have strips of fabric leftover from making ruffles, so i was able to take some of my strips (about 2 1/2 inches wide) and cut triangles out of them – so each triangle is about 2 1/2″ tall.
i cut a handful out of a bunch of fabrics that went with the color theme (red, white, and blue… and turquoise).
then i took a long length of baker’s twine (longer than my mantle length).
starting about 1 foot in, i began gluing my triangles (narrowest point down) to the twine. i just ran a bead of glue along the backside of the top of the triangle and then put the twine in the glue and folded the fabric over the twine.
i left a little space, then repeated. again and again and again.
and i was able to reuse them for labor day also – woohoo!
i love buntings of all size and shape, but these teeny tiny ones are so fun!
