Canvas Halloween Pennants {No Sew!}

Brighten up your Halloween mantel with these easy canvas Halloween pennants.  No sewing skills necessary!

Easy Canvas Halloween Pennants

Materials:

  • Rickrack in different widths and colors
  • Canvas fabric (can be one color or several colors)
  • Fabric glue (I used Liquid Stitch)
  • Ribbon
  • Craft Paint
  • Buttons
  • Fray Check (or a similar product) –to seal the edges of your canvas and keep them from fraying
  • Free Printable Pennant Pattern (download it from my Paper Candy Corn Bunting project, but only print the pattern for the white layer)

Instructions:

  1. Lightly trace your pattern onto the colored canvas — leaving at least 1/2″ between triangles.  Do not cut the shapes out yet.
  2. Go crazy with decorating–letting your decorations go over the edges of you traced lines.

Here’s some inspiration:

The rickrack and buttons are attached with fabric glue, and the dots were created by dipping a pencil eraser into the craft paint and dotting it onto the fabric.

  1. Once all of the glue and paint is dry, cut out your triangles.
  2. Arrange them in the order you like, and cut a ribbon long enough to go across the top of the entire line of pennants.  I left 6-10 inches of extra ribbon on the sides.
  3. Either pin the ribbon to the pennants and stitch across the top, or attach your ribbon with liquid stitch.  (I chose to sew mine.)

You’re done.  Ta da!

* A note about my mantle.  Yes.  I know that my mantle is pretty wimpy–especially in comparison to all of those fabulous ideas all over blogland.  I’m just getting started with decorating, so my decor improves a little each year.  I have this strange illness that makes me think that I need to make my own decorations!  I just can’t seem to shake it.  Yes.  I also know that it is a little strange to have Halloween decorations surrounding a picture of the Savior.  That’s a part of my mantle that won’t change (unless I find a better place for the picture).  I want the Savior to be a focus in my home, and I can’t bring myself to move the picture just because it clashes with my decorations.  I think having that picture as the focal point of my home is more important than having an awesome mantle.  So there you have it.  That’s me.

Here’s my inspiration from Tatertots and Jello:
