DIY Felt Pennants {easy Christmas Decor}

2 Materials
30 Minutes
I have a cute little tutorial for you guys today. I couldn't help buying some felt at the dollar store the other day and came up with these easy and ridiculously cute DIY felt pennants.
It's really simple. Grab some sheets of felt (usually about 30 cents a piece), some wooden dowels (you can get a pack for a buck or two), your hot glue gun, scissors, and some twine.
I didn't take many pictures of the actual process, but it's easy to explain. Step 1 >> Cut the triangle out of the bottom of your piece of felt. I measured the mid point and then drew lines with a ruler from it down to the ends so that it would be even-ish.
Step 2 >> Fold over the top of your felt piece, over the dowel, and then run a bead of hot glue along it. Press down and hold in place until it dries. {If you wanted to get fancy - you could sew this, but that is beyond this lazy DIY gal}.
Step 3 >> Turn your pennant over, and then cut out whatever shapes you want and glue on. You could also use iron-on appliques, buttons, fabric... really, you could glue on just about anything. I free-handed some shapes out of the felt I had. I'm super into black and white these days, so I did a christmas tree and a swiss cross.
Step 4 >> Hop over to the blog to see the final step! (and check out other pennant inspiration)
