Happy Monday, everyone! I’m so excited to be a participant in Sugar Bee Craft’s Red White & Blue Series. Please take a moment to link over to see a ton of other patriotic ideas. Here is the project I’m contributing to the series:
This project couldn’t have been easier, mainly because I already had the cupboard door hanging which I bought at a flea market. It usually just has a hydrangea in the vase, but I love that I can easily change out what’s in it to match other seasons and holidays. (My Presto Chango Velcro Wreath helps me out with that, too.) So in honor of the Fourth of the July, I just popped in a navy blue bloom from Jo-Ann’s and a small American flag, then made the bunting with the help of Phoomph.
Have you guys ever heard of this product? It was a new one by me…my friend, Christine, introduced me to it. There’s no sewing or ironing required with this stuff. You just peel back the paper backing and adhere your fabric to it on each side, and it magically gives your projects some structure. I certainly didn’t want to sew these tiny pennants, so this product really helped me out. Here’s how I made the bunting:
Mini Patriotic Pennants
Nap Rating = 1/2 nap
Tools & Materials
- fabric scraps (I just raided my bin and used some blue ticking, and a bandanna)
- 1 sheet of Phoomph (I would recommend using the white)
- small piece of cardboard (I just snipped a little off of a cereal box lid)
- hot glue gun
- Measure and cut a length of yarn to fit your project.
- Lay it on your project and eyeball it to decide how big you want your pennants to be.
- On the cardboard, draw a triangle to the desired size and cut it out to use as a pattern.
- Peel back the paper backing on your sheet of Phoomph and adhere your fabric scrap to it on one side. Repeat on the other side.
- Trace your pennant pattern onto the fabric-covered Phoomph and cut out. Repeat for as many tiny flags as you think you need.
- Using the hot glue gun, dab a small bead of glue on each pennant and place on the yarn.
Now I just used a small piece of Scotch tape to attach the yarn on each corner of this project because I wanted the ability to take it off. But you could hot glue it on.
Thanks for visiting! I hope you come back soon!
