INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Sketch out a design with pencil on the pennants. ( I decided to draw each pennant's design free-hand rather than using a ruler, so the lines are not perfectly straight.)
  2. Paint each section of the pennant with a different color of Americana Acrylics. (See supply list.) Let dry.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Once completely dry, paint over the Americana Acrylic with a complimentary color of Craft Twinkles. (See supply list.)
    Step 2 Example
  4. Paint each individual letter with a basecoat of an Americana Acrylic. Let dry and finish off with a coat of Silver Moon. Let dry.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Once everything is completely dry and flat, use craft glue to adhere the letters to the pennants. (Place something heavy on the letters to make sure they really stick.) Once everything is dry and stable, string decorative ribbon through the holes of the pennants, leaving enough on each end for hanging.
    Step 4 Example

HELPFUL HINTS

When using chipboard, make sure you don't put the paint on too thick, as it has a tendency to want to curl. If it does curl, you can put a heavy book on the chipboard to flatten it out, once the paint is dry.
