How to Make a Patriotic Pennant Banner
Show off the stars and bars all summer long! This Patriotic Pennant Banner is an awesome Americana decoration for a Memorial Day barbecue, or the perfect front porch bunting for a Fourth of July celebration.
Paint 3 wood pennants
Paint 3 of the wood pennants dark blue. Let dry completely.
Paint remaining pennants
Paint the remaining pennants and the 3 stars white. This may take more than 1 coat. Let dry completely.
Mask off stripes on the pennants, making 2 to 3 stripes on each. Paint stripes red and let dry completely.
Remove masking tape.
Lightly sand the edges and surface of the pennants and stars. Clean off any dust.
Ink the edges with a brown pigment ink pad.
Hot glue star
Hot glue a star onto each of the blue pennants.
