DIY Souvenir Pennant

By: Cristin Frank from Eve of Reduction

Perfect for your little sports fan, this DIY Souvenir Pennant from Cristin Frank is a great way to decorate a little boy's room or add some fun decorations to a sports themed party.  While real pennants can cost several dollars, these DIY crafts can be done for less than 5 bucks!  Make them to say anything from your favorite sports team to the name of your little sports fan!  These also make great party favors, stocking stuffers, and gifts.

  • Wool felt
  • Spray starch/iron
  • Fabric or tacky glue
  • Foam paper
  • Scissors
  • Cardboard
  • White glue
  • Paints



  1. Cut a triangular shape out of a large piece of wool felt.  For best results, spray it with starch and run an iron over it.
  2. Cut a strip of felt (can be a different color) about an inch wide. Cut 4 more strips of felt about 3/4" x 5" each. Using fabric or tacky glue, glue 2 of the smaller strips to make a V shape. Repeat with the other 2 small strips. Glue one V about an inch from the top of the left, vertical side of the triangle. Glue the other V about an inch from the bottom of the same side. Then glue the longer, thicker strip down that vertical edge, covering over the tips of the Vs.
  3. Design your pennant using research and tour books of your destination. Sketch it out on paper first.
  4. Print type and images off the computer or use stencils or freehand drawings to transfer onto the foam paper.

  5. Cut letters and shapes out of foam paper and glue them in reverse onto a piece of cardboard. Each design element should get a separate section of cardboard.  After you've glued the foam shapes and letters to the cardboard, hold it up in front of a mirror to make sure everything looks the way you want it to.

  6. Paint foam designs and stamp them down onto the felt one by one. Be sure paint doesn't dry in areas before you're finished painting the whole piece. If areas appear to be missing paint, you can always touch them up with the paintbrush directly onto the felt.  Trim the cardboard closely around the foam image. This will make it easier to see where you are placing the image.
