As I mentioned here, I got a new job, thus a new classroom and four very institutionally bare walls. The Hubs and I have several team pennants in the basement and I love showing school/team pride, but I'm not going to steal from our sporty family room and I'm certainly not going to go out and buy new ones.
I bought some felt, printed stencils, glued 'em on and DONE.
1 rectangle sheet of stiff felt
1 8x11(ish) piece of regular felt (for the border and lettering)
letter stencils (or print some letters using Word and cut 'em out, I'll show you how to use them in a minute)
Use a pennant you already have as your stencil. Mine was too big for the felt I had, so I just modified it.
Stencil time. I printed some letters; no stencils to be found. Be sure to use a simple font. Those curly q fonts would be murderous to your hands.
Once you've cut them out, flip them over and glue them on to your felt *with hot glue ;-) Cut 'em out and glue them right side up (paper side down) onto your pennant.
Yay. Pennants for the classroom.
and here they are in my room!
What teams/schools would you make a pennant for?
