Hello Craftionary friends! My name is Talitha  I’m a wife, nurse, Pinterest addict, bargain hunter, and thrift store stalker. But mostly, I’m a DIY-er at heart who loves good bargain and I’m attempting to make my little family’s life more beautiful one DIY at a time. You can normally find me in my corner of the blogsphere on Love, Pomegranate House.It’s where I share about the ins-and-outs of my little family as well as my home decor and crafting projects with a side portion of some yummy recipes!I’m so excited to be hanging out today and sharing with you my latest obsession:
 

Pennant banners!

With the winter and holidays upon us, I wanted to incorporate my fixation in a fun way into some winter decor! To be honest, our home has been having a little bit Christmas like feeling around since um August. I’m one of those people who starts listening to Christmas music a tiny bit early! Just a smidge. Don’t judge me. I love to go all out with decorating for the holidays. It just warms my heart to see a glittering tree, a fire in the fireplace, and a big wreath on the front door! But, alas, I had no wreath. So, in all my craftiness, I decided to make a DIY winter wreath! Here is how I made it:

Make DIY Winter Wreath:

  2. Flowers/ berries/ greens or whatever your heart desires to make your wreath your own!
  3. Twine or ribbon
  4. Muslin fabric
  5. Scissors
  6. Letters stencil
  7. Acrylic paint
  8. Sponge Brush
  9. Hot glue gun

Begin by cutting off the stems of your flowers. Then, hot glue them on to your wreath. Be careful! I know *ahem* someone *ahem* who has a tendency of hot gluing things to her fingers.

 While the hot glue sets, cut your muslin into triangles. You don’t have to be perfect here. I just eyeballed it. Cut out as many triangles as you need for your letters.
 
Put your muslin triangle on a piece of tin foil or any medium you prefer to avoid mess as the paint will leak through it. Then, dab the paint on your stencil in the center of the muslin triangle you just cut, using a brush.
Note: You can also use a paint pen for lettering!

My letters were missing space from the stencil  So, I just took a tiny paint brush and filled in the spaces as I didn’t like the way it looked. Not a necessary step, but definitely an option!

Then, all you need to do is to hot glue the pennant letters onto some twine, followed by hot gluing the twine onto the wreath!

Now you are done! Hang that beauty up on your wall, on your door, above your mantel! While this pennant wreath is easy to make for winter, you can also easily change it’s look for spring, summer or fall!
So go ahead! Adapt away DIY winter wreath!
