How to Make a First or Last Day of School Pennant Flag
Before we get started you’ll need a few supplies to make your pennant flag:
Printer with Paper – I like to use cardstock so the flag is sturdier and the paper is thicker so it isn’t sheer.
Wooden Dowel or Skewer – I use 12″ wood dowels from Michaels for my pennant flags, but you can also use a food skewer.
Scissors – To cut your pennant flag out
Hot Glue Gun – I like to use my glue gun, but you could also use krazy glue.
Ribbon – I used ribbon I had on hand. I like to purchase ribbon bundles for projects like these. You could also use yarn!
- Polka Dot Ribbon
- Ribbon Bundle – I also get ribbon bundles from Michael’s and Hobby Lobby
- Solid Ribbon – you can also find these at local craft stores
- Ribbon cutter – This is a game changer! It cuts your ribbon for you and seals the ends. I love mine.
How to Assemble Printable Pennant Flag
Step 1: Download your flags via the box at the bottom of this post.
Step 2: Print your flag out.
Step 3: Cut your flag out.
Step 4: Place hot glue along the back edge of your flag. I added mine to the dowel, but doing it on the paper is probably easier. Quickly place your dowel or skewer over the glue and hold down for 5-10 seconds.
Step 5: Cut your ribbon. I did 8.5″, but you can do longer if you want.
Step 6: Tie your ribbon around your dowel under the pennant.
Step 7: Now you can use your pennant flag for the first day or last day of school pictures or decorate your home or classroom for the first or last day of school.
