Father’s Day is this Sunday and we created a fun pennant banner to celebrate! This fun diy project will have you ready to celebrate Dad’s big day in no time! Before you start, be sure to download our #1 DAD pennant banner below. Each PDF contains a # sign, the number 1, and the letters A and D.

After printing the PDF files, cut out the pennant flags and punch a hole on each side using a hole punch.

Next you will use either string, yarn, or ribbon to attach each flag to the banner. There is a technique to looping the flags on your string so that it remains hidden and your letters appear in the correct order.

First, when adding your pennant flags to the banner, always start with the last word or symbol n your message. For instance, I started with the letter D in the #1 DAD banner.

Second, to make it so your string runs behind your banner and not in front; start your string on the second punched hole on the pennant flag,and push it behind the flag to the the first hole.

Once you have strung all your letters tie a knot at each end of the banner and find a place to hang it. ┬áDad’s gonna love it!

Make your Mother’s Day Cards Pop!

Show your Mom some love with this fun Mother’s Day DIY!

With Mother’s Day just two days away, many of use are scrambling to find/ create the perfect card and gift. If you don’t have a lot of time to shop around, printable Mother’s Day cards are perfect! They download instantly to your device, typically cost about the same or less than a store bought card, and you can print them off at home. I love using printable cards for their convenience, but sometimes I like to add a little something to make them pop. A great way to do this, is by mounting your printable card on decorative card stock. You can purchase this kind of card stock at any craft store like Michael’s and Hobby Lobby and there are many great designs to choose from. For this project I chose to go with a 12×12 in piece of gold striped card stock and I used the LovelyHomeParty’s Mother’s Day printables.

What you will need:

Printable Mother’s Day Cards (You can order our’s here for just $1!!)

Card stock (Any size works as long as its bigger than the printable card)

Scissors or a Paper Cutter

Modge Podge

The first thing I did was to print off my Mother’s Day Cards. I decided to print them on glossy 8.5 x 11 in photo paper and then cut them out, but you can also print them off on 8.5 x 11 in. card stock.

After printing and cutting out the cards, I cut my 12 x 12 in. gold and white striped card stock in half so that the stripes would be horizontal when I placed my cards on top.

I then trimmed my card stock so that it was just slightly larger than my Mother’s Day Cards, and used Modge Podge to adhere them together.

Once your glue has finished drying and your cards are complete, they can now be given to the most important woman in your life, your mama!
