A while back I was totally inspired to make my first pennant banner.
I know...am I even a craft blogger if I've never made a pennant banner?
minor identity crisis averted, phew!
I loved this one that Krystal from Sassy Sanctuary did that was magnetic...mostly because I was so impressed that she started with
So I went on the hunt to find my own chipboard pennant.
Since Krystal got hers in the US, and I'm in a country called Canada that's deprived from said stores who carry chipboard pennants, it was ETSY to the rescue!
I found this great shop called studioCee who carries all sorts of chipboard cut outs.
I ordered mine (for super cheap might I add) and they were here in no time.
So then I procrastinated for like a month
(WHAT ELSE IS NEW, RIGHT?)
But THEN finally I broke out my chalkboard spray paint and went to work on the pennants to make a Chalkboard Pennant Banner.
(if I do say so myself)
Here's what I did...
Chalkboard Spray Paint ($2.50 clearance at Michaels)
12 Chipboard Pennants (from $1.50 for 4 from StudioCee)
I sprayed them all down with two coats.
Let them dry for a day.
Then using Sisal Twine, I weaved in & out through the pennants, wrote on them, and hung them!
I'm still thinking about what to creatively write on it next...
for now, it still says "chalkboard" and stares at me mockingly with the fact that I have nothing better to write.
