I ♥ Pennants

This year when I pulled out our Easter decor, I decided that I didn't like any of it anymore. 

So I tried to think of something inexpensive I could make to decorate for Easter/Spring!

I have seen a lot of pennant banners on several blogs and with some...

 extra burlap
mini clothes pins (craft section of Walmart)
stencils (craft section of Walmart)

I decided to make one of my own. 

I didn't have a rotary cutter so my pennants are not perfect, which I must admit does kind of bother the perfectionist in me, but I think it came out pretty darn cute and cost next to nothing!

My little topiary is missing it's planter... keep hoping I will find the matching one somewhere!!

What are you waiting for?? Go make one!!

Join  us Saturdays at for the weekend wrap 
 up           party!
