DIY: Pennant Banner

I think it is safe to say that I have officially recovered from the busyness of the holidays... And well, life. It's crazy to think that we are headed into February already! February! My son is still talking about Christmas!

Speaking of my son, we did a little rearranging and some light decorating in his bedroom. He doesn't have a headboard yet, and I really felt like the wall that his bed was up against was really needing something in the mean time. I whipped up an easy and affordable banner to add some color and pattern to the space. My guess is the project cost... oh, probably around $6-$8.

I just used scrapbook paper and twine (which I already had). I figured the paper would be an easy way to incorporate trendy patterns, like the chevron along with some more kid friendly options, like the dinosaurs (which he REALLY loved). I basically just cut the scrapbook paper into pennant/triangle shapes the size that I wanted, trying to keep them all about the same size. I used the same template on all of them.

Then, I used a hole punch to make two holes near the edge of the paper. 

And then I treaded the twine through just like in the picture. I did each one the same way, that way if I decided that they needed to be more stationary, I could go back and tape the twine to the paper on the back side. I ended up not needing to do this though, but better safe than sorry!

It was a pretty pain-free craft project! I found some teeny tiny nails in our garage to hang it up with. One on each edge and then one right in the middle. 

Easy & affordable decorating for a kid's room, I'd say! Now about that headboard project... still thinking on that one. Stay tuned!
