I’m helping host a Pink and Yellow Owl themed baby shower and was put in charge of the decorations, and of course
a Pennant banner is a MUST-Have. The mom-to-be is having a baby girl, so I decided to have the pennant banner say “ITS A GIRL”using the overall pink and yellow color scheme and incorporate the owl theme with two decorative pennants on each end of the banner. I love DIY projects for parties and events and am excited to share the tutorial for the Pink and Yellow Owl Baby Shower Pennant Banner I made. If you’re looking for more baby shower pennant banner tutorials you should check out my Chevron “ITS A BOY” Pennant Banner tutorial.
I plan to share a tutorial for the Owl Baby Shower Corsage that I made for the mom-to-be, as well.
Okay, let’s get started!!
Here is what you will need:
- Pre-cut Pennant Banner (I purchased mine for less than $5 at Target)
- Decorative Paper
- Circle Punch (or you can print a circle and cut it out)
- Decorative Letters (I used pre-cut letters I purchased for $2 at Hobby Lobby), but you can use Stickers or you can print your letters from word and cut them out.
- Glue (I used Elmer’s Glue Stick)
- Paint (this is only if you are using pre-cut letters that need to be painted and if you don’t have the exact color of paper you need for your banner).
Step 1: Trace Pennant Banner onto the back of your decorative paper
Step 2: Cut out Pennant and Glue it onto your pre-cut pennant
Step 3: Punch holes at top of banner using the pre-cut banner’s holes as a guide
This is what your Pennant will look like after you punch the holes
You need 10 Pennants (8 of which for the letters “ITS A GIRL” and 2 for the decorative Owls) Repeat the above steps for the remaining 7 pennants
Step 4: Use decorative paper or paint on the remaining two pennants. I couldn’t find pale yellow scrapbook paper anywhere, so I decided to paint my pennants.
Step 5: Cut out the Circles for your Letters (I had a Circle Punch that I used) but you can also print out the right size circle and cut it out).
Step 6: Since I didn’t have the right color of paper to use for my circles I painted my circles the same color yellow as I did the decorative pennants (if you have the right color paper you can skip this step).
Step 7: If you’re using cardstock letters (like I used then you need to paint your letters), sorry I don’t have a picture of this step.
Step 8: Adhere your letters onto the circles (I used an Elmer’s Glue stick)
Step 9: Glue your Circles onto your Pennants
Step 10: Paint your wooden owls (you can also print an owl template if you prefer)
Step 11: Adhere your owls onto your pennants (I used a hot glue gun for this since the owls were heavier than cardstock)
Step 12: Hang your pennants (I decided to use ribbon instead of the string that came with the pre-cut pennant banner)
Now you have a Pink and Yellow Owl Baby Shower Pennant Banner!
I hope you enjoyed my DIY Owl Baby Shower Pennant Banner Tutorial!!
