Make Your Own Pottery Barn Kids Decorations


I walked into Pottery Barn Kids a couple of weeks ago and saw this cute pennant banner hanging up on there store wall and fell completely in LOVE with it. I thought hey..., I could make this for my little lady's bedroom, so I did! Do you want to make one for your little lady's room? If so keep reading to learn how I made mine.
  •  The first thing I did was go over to one of my FAVORITE specialty scrapbook stores, Timeless Treasures and picked out some cute scrapbook paper that would coordinate well with my little lady's room. I picked out 4 different sheets of paper and I bought 3 sheets of each. 
  • I used a pennant pattern that I already had on hand and traced it  onto the paper. I was able to fit about 3 pennants on each piece. After I traced all of them I cutter  all of them out.
  • The next day, I punched holes with a hole puncher on each side of the pennants.
  • For the ribbon I bought mine at Michaels Craft store.  I used 6 yards of 1 1/2 inches thick of ribbon.
  •  I threaded them together in a pattern. While I was threading them I realized it needed more color to it  so I used the other side of the double sided paper to add more color. 
  • After I was done threading them together, I tacked them up onto her wall. 
If you want to add a little extra cuteness to it you could make some flowers to go at the end and at the curves of your banner. I made a total of 4 flowers for mine. This entire project costed me around 18 dollars! Not bad! Right?!?  If I were to buy something like this at Pottery Barn Kids it would have costed me an arm and a leg. LOL!!  Later on in the future, I would like to buy the cute words PB Kids have. I will hang them above the banner. They are so CUTE!!  I will probably end up making my own words, when Hobby Lobby opens up in our area in May. I cannot wait for May 11th!! I am going to be there like all the time. LOL! :)

Not only does your pennant banner look like it came straight out of PB for kids but so does your little girl's room. Simply adorable.
