Memorial Day is around the corner and Maria Provenzano shows how to add a little red, white and blue to our homes to celebrate.

MATERIALS:

  • Felt in red, white and blue
  • White sequin star decals
  • 1” wooden dowel
  • Rotary cutter
  • Ruler
  • Chalk or fabric markers
  • Fabri-tac
  • Command or cup hooks

OPTIONAL:

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Paint the dowel if desired. Set aside to dry.
  2. Cut the pennants of the garland to desired size, add 2 ½” to the desired height to wrap around the dowel. Fold each pennant in half then use a straight edge and rotary cutter to cut diagonally from the bottom of the center fold upward to create the pointed bottom detail.
  3. Attach the pennants to the dowel. Space the pennants on your work surface as desired, place the dowel then wrap around and adhere on the edge to the back side.
  4. Draw out or print, cut out then trace the letters onto the felt then cut out.
  5. Draw out or trace detail elements for the lettering onto contrasting colors of felt. Cut out.
