I’m helping with a dear friend of mine’s baby shower and I wanted to make a banner to go with the grey, yellow, blue and white chevron theme. I am a huge fan of pennant banners, as I think they are so fun and festive and are the perfect addition to any shower, party or holiday celebration.

To make this project easier I purchased a blank pennant banner at Hobby Lobby to use as a template, and let me just say it was a HUGE time saver!! On the downside I couldn’t find yellow, blue or grey chevron scrapbook paper anywhere, so I had to make my own chevron pattern by printing a template, tracing it on scrapbook paper and then cutting it out (that took awhile but I didn’t have another option) and it worked so it was worth the extra time!!

If you have an event coming up this is a quick & easy tutorial to make your own personalized Pennant Banner.

Alright, Let’s get started!

Here is what you will need:

  • Blank Pennant Banner (You can purchase this at Hobby Lobby for $4.99)
  • Scrapbook Paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue Stick

 Step 1: Determine the pattern that you want to use. I wanted to do a solid pennant and then a chevron pennant between each solid pennant. To make the solid pennant I took a piece of scrapbook paper and traced the outline of the pennant and then cut it out

Step 2: Glue the scrapbook paper onto the pennant, I thought it was easiest to use an Elmer’s glue stick to adhere the paper.

Step 3: Next I printed out an image of a grey chevron pattern that I liked and then cut out the grey zig zags

Step 4: Since the banner I purchased was white I glued the grey zig zags onto the template to create a chevron pattern

Step 5: Before moving on to the next pennant I cut out the white zig zags from the chevron print off and then traced them onto the yellow and blue scrapbook paper

Step 6: I went on to trace and cut out the next piece of  solid scrapbook paper  and glued it onto the template.

Repeat the steps above until you finish the entire banner. Make sure to add an extra pennant for the space in-between each word.

Step 7: Once you have glued scrapbook paper on each of the pennants you can move onto the word or words you want to add to your banner. I decided to make my own letters in Microsoft paint using Poor Richard Font 255. I actually made one letter and printed it off first before doing all of the letters because I wanted to make sure it was the right size (and it was to small) so after re-sizing it I was able to get the perfect size letter for my pennant banner, then I made a template for each of the letters, printed them off and cut them out
