A few weeks ago, I was invited to a surprise birthday party for my friend Susannah of Feast + West. I offered to help craft some party decor for the event at Sycamore Brewing in Charlotte. I decided to make colorful celebration pennants with fun messages on them. When placed in beer bottles spray painted gold, they made easy centerpieces.

DIY Celebrate Pennants - Cut out words // Twin Stripe Blog

Begin this project by printing out words or phrases on your printer. (For example: cheers, happy birthday and more.) I used a font called Blackout because the letters are easy to cut out. Once you have printed your words, cut out each letter and trace it onto the piece of felt with a Sharpie. Carefully cut each letter out of the piece of felt.

When you have cut out all of the letters, cut another piece of felt into a triangle. Glue the letters on the triangle pennant piece. Once the letters are secure, glue the wooden dowel to the back side of the pennant. Place the pennant in a vase, bottle or just hang on the wall for a festive decoration.
