Every once in a while, I love a good rainy day. An excuse to stay indoors, put on some music, burn some incense, and get creative. Using some supplies I had on hand, I created this easy wall hanging that can be modified depending on how creative you want to get! I made two versions – one hand-painted and one embroidered. It adds such a simple, fun element to your décor and could be customized for a certain party or event you’re celebrating!
What you need:
For embroidered pennants: Canvas flags (I found these at Michael’s, but you could also just get some canvas fabric and cut it into whatever shape you want). You’ll also need embroidery thread, and an embroidery hoop (not totally necessary but makes it a lot easier). A needle, some twine, and small clothespins.
For painted pennants: Canvas flags, paint (I used acrylic), twine, and small clothespins.
There aren’t any rules to this DIY – get creative and have fun! For the embroidered pennants, I just chose different color combinations that I like and free-handed these little “planets.” I hung them on the twine using the mini clothes pins.
The painted pennants take a lot less time – simply paint letters right onto the canvas (I free-handed these but you could use a stencil too!).
The result is beautiful simplicity.
+Which ones do you like better, painted or embroidered?
