10 MINUTE CRAFTS

A COLORFUL PENNANT BANNER

This quick and easy banner took less than ten minutes to put together and cost about $1.50 to make.  That's my kind of project!  Plus this was an easy activity that my daughter could help with so it doubled as a good bonding experience for my sadly non-napping toddler.  While I like the extra cuddle time, I do miss sneaking in a quick afternoon nap when she does!  

We first started with some rectangular foam sheets that you can pick up at any craft store (we bought ours from the Dollar Tree and it came in a multi-pack of different colors).  Next we cut each sheet into six triangles and within each triangle just made a small cut at the top corners with a pair of scissors to make an opening to thread a ribbon.  This only took a few minutes (longer with my little helper!).  It doesn't have to be perfect since you don't really see the slits once the banner is hanging.

Next we threaded a thin ribbon through each triangle piece to make a simple pennant banner.  We used a 1/4" white ribbon which was thick enough to help the triangles stay flat and hang in one direction.

And that's basically it!  Now your banner is ready to hang.  We hung ours in the playroom to add a bit of instant festiveness to our play area.  As my sweetie would say, it's like a daily birthday party.  I love how even little things can make a child light up with happiness.  Not bad for $1.50!  =)
