[make] Candy Corn Pennant Banner


First day of Fall was this weekend: my favorite season of all! To spruce things up a bit at the Johnson household, I decided to make a pennant banner: candy corn style!

Gather your colored papers: I used a large yellow triangle (8" length), a medium orange triangle (6" length), and a white triangle (4" length). I used my paper cutter to cut these out. You can use patterned paper or solids, I mixed it up with both.

I was going to be lazy and use tape and/or Mod Podge, but you know my kick with sewing paper lately (here and here), so I stacked the papers accordingly on top of each other and sewed up the sides. I didn't sew the middles, so it left little pockets. That may work to my advantage if I want to stick something fall-y in there one day!

I used yellow ribbon and sewed it on the top to join the pennants together to hang...

Ta-da! I used four pennants in case I want to write "Fall" or something of the like on them.

I put it on the mirror in our dining room: all yellowy and orangey, so festive.

Fall touches around the house like this make my heart happy. Now I am ready for this cooler weather that comes with Fall! C'mon Texas, catch up with the rest of the country.

Happy Monday! We did some rearranging of furniture over the weekend, so hopefully I can get some pictures and a post set up with that information... exciting, I know... Ha! Have a good evening!

"Hallelujah, hallelujah, for the Lord God almighty reigns. Hallelujah... Holy, holy, are you Lord God almighty. Worthy is the lamb, worthy is the lamb. You are holy."
