DIY Wall Pennants

Amanda Kingloff | Project Kid

Pennants are usually reserved for school spirit, but there are WAY more fun things to cheer for! Celebrate what you love most with this easy room decorating craft you can make with materials you (probably) already have around the house. Goooooooo WIFI!

What you need:

  • Cardboard

  • Pencil

  • Scrap paper

  • Colored cardstock

  • Paint and paintbrush

  • Scissors

  • Glue

1. Cut pennant shape from cardboard


Amanda Kingloff | Project Kid

Cut a pennant shape from cardboard. Make this any size you’d like! (Kids will need adult help with this step, as it can be tough to cut through cardboard!)

2. Trace pennant on paper


Amanda Kingloff | Project Kid

Trace the cardboard pennant onto scrap paper (butcher paper or easel paper work well). Set the tracing aside.

3. Paint cardboard pennant


Amanda Kingloff | Project Kid

Paint the cardboard in the color of your choice; paint both sides to prevent warping. Let this dry.

4. Draw template letters


Amanda Kingloff | Project Kid

On the traced pennant paper, write the letters of your word across your pennant shape, making sure to space them out to fill the length of the triangle. Trace around the letters to turn them into block letters. This step is just to make a template, so don’t worry if you have stray pencil marks!

5. Trace and cut colorful letters


Amanda Kingloff | Project Kid

Cut out the letters and trace them onto your colored cardstock.  Now cut out the cardstock letters.

6. Finish your pennant!


Amanda Kingloff | Project Kid

Cut a 2" wide band of matching cardstock that equals the height of the short side of the pennant. Fold it in half lengthwise and glue around the edge. Glue on letters. Cut four 1-by-3” strips and glue them to the back as shown.
