DIY Pennant

Cardboard paper and copper, not exactly the first thing you think of as together in a craft, but I believe it works great in this DIY Pennant I’ve made. The text I’ve chosen for my pennant is the words of Astrid Lindgren’s character Pippi Longstocking, who I believe shows us the best way to deal with challenges! Let me tell you how I made this pennant!

1. Supplies: A copper pipe, a pipe cutter, thin cardboard paper, a printer, quick dry glue, twine and a paper cutter (or pair of scissors)

2. Make the pennant design. I’ve used Indesign, but Photoshop or Gimp will do as well. Print it out on a sheet of cardboard paper.

3. Use the paper cutter and cut out the pennant. Also cut out two strips that’ll go around the pipe.

4. Hold the pipe next to the pennant and measure how long you want it to be. Cut the pipe using the pipe cutter.

5. Glue on the two strips of cardboard paper – loop them around the pipe.

6. Pull twine through the pipe, tie a knot and you are ready to hang your beautiful new pennant on the wall!

I’ve bought the pipe at Clas Ohlson and the cardboard paper comes from Panduro.
