INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Use a pencil and ruler to trace a basic triangle shape onto to the muslin or fabric of choice.
  2. Use pinking shears to cut out each pennant. Make sure it is big enough for each wooden letter to fit inside. If the fabric is thin, cut two layers.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Use a sewing machine to double up the fabric, connecting two layers for each pennant.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Use scissors to cut a snowflake of your choice out of freezer paper. (The "busier" the snowflake, the better!)
    Step 3 Example
  5. Iron the snowflake to the pennant to use as a stencil.
    Step 4 Example
  6. Use a 3/4" flat brush and Silver to paint all around the snowflake, brushing outward along the edges. Rinse brush. Remove the freezer paper and repeat steps on all four pennants.
    Step 5 Example
  7. Use a 3/4" flat brush and Turquoise Waters to paint "NOEL" letters. Rinse brush.
    Step 6 Example
  8. Once the letters are fully dry, use a 3/4" flat brush to brush craft glue on one letter at a time. Immediately sprinkle chunky glitter all over the letter. Repeat on all letters. Rinse brush.
    Step 7 Example
  9. Once the pennants are dry, sew them together with lace or ribbon of your choice.
    Step 8 Example
  10. Use a hot glue gun and glue sticks to attach letters to the pennants.
    Step 9 Example
