Once upon a time, I bought one large drop cloth from Home Depot…
I swear that drop cloth just keeps growing. I’ve already made one pennant out of it here, but there is plenty left. I love all of the CANDY CORN stuff on Pinterest for Fall. For the record, I don’t like candy corn- to eat. I like the colors, and I like to decorate with it. In fact, I have 2 more projects to show you later with a candy corn theme. But I think it tastes nasty, and my hips thank me for it!
For this pennant banner, I used eleven 5x8 and two 6x6 triangle templates to cut my drop cloth. I then taped them off with painters tape and painted them with craft paint that I mixed with textile medium.
I wanted to be able to change out the letters, order, and words easily. So, I used mini clothespins found at Michaels to hold letters that I cut from heavy cardstock with my Silhouette. The “or” is glued on with fabric glue. I’m sure it will peel off easily if I need to make a change. With eleven triangles, I can change this up if I want and make it HALLOWEEN with a plain candy corn on each end. Or I can leave the whole bunting blank and just enjoy the colors. I could break it up into small vignettes as well with a little BOO here and a little SPOOKY there, since my triangles are just attached to twine with a clothespin.
Last, I made a cute little pumpkin rosette to finish off each end of the bunting. Just a simple rosette using a dollar fat quarter I found at Walmart. I added a little felt stem and a piece of green twine for the finishing touch!
