Fairy House Fun: Pennants on Sticks

Due to the fact we are doing some fairy house fun at work, I thought I'd share some of the mini projects I've been having creating as models to give our visitors ideas.

This week is a series of workshops including a day of making fairies, another of accessories and the last day creating a mini house. **COME BY THURSDAY AT The Monadnock Center for History and Culture AND YOU CAN MAKE THIS!!

Today I'd like to show you how to make a sweet little set of pennants, which could also be PERFECT on a cake!  HAHA!  Double duty! 

Here's what you need:
  • Pair of sticks - they could be right off the ground outside OR coffee stirrers, like these.
  • String
  • Scrapbooking paper
  • Glue Stick
  • *ALSO - Accessories (like the butterfly) if you have them
Here's how they look on a plant in the office.  Cute, right?

First, you need some scrapbook paper.  I like to mix it up with solids and prints.  Oh... and some scissors and glue.  Cut out out some pennants.

Fold the pennant over the string and snip off the extra.  You can see where it is on the yellow and how I trimmed it on the print.

Take your handy dandy glue stick and glue them down.  Tie the two ends to the sticks.

I LOVE it out on the planter at work!  The butterfly is a velum scrapbooking goodie.

There you go!  Perfect for fairy decorations OR your latest birthday cake adventure!
Happy creating,
PS.  Come visit us and make this and other goodies 4/23-25!!
