Is your Dad a big sports fan? This Father’s Day, decorate with these simple felt pennants! If your dad has a favorite team, use felt in the team’s official colors. Not a big sports fan? No biggie – you could also use your dad’s favorite colors!
I don’t know about you, but my dad was always up way too early to want breakfast in bed. That doesn’t mean you can’t set up a little surprise for later though! Hang your felt pennants on the wall in your kitchen or dining room and make a little buffet of your dad’s favorite treats – he’s sure to thank you for it!
What You Need
- Hot glue gun
- Paint and paintbrushes (optional)
Use chalk to draw a triangle onto a piece of felt – these ones are 6” wide at the base and 9” long – and cut out.
For the edge detail, cut out strips in contrasting felt. One strip should be ½” wide and long enough to cover the triangle base, and the other two strips should be ¼” wide and 4” long. Fold the thin strips in half and glue in place as shown. Then glue the wider strip on top. Repeat for all triangles.
Use string to write a message (“We love Dad!”) onto the triangle, using glue to keep in place. This method can be a bit trickier for younger kids, so try capital letters instead of cursive, or use paint and a brush instead.
Another way to decorate the pennants is to cut felt into letters and glue in place.
You can do the same thing with hearts or other shapes as well!
