Today I’m posting a little DIY on how to make your own felt letter pennant. This can be such a fun detail in a nursery, and you can express whatever you’d like: “adventure,” “be brave”, “stay wild”, a monogram, anything you can dream up. It’s really simple, and also really inexpensive (always a bonus!). You can use felt sheets for the letters (here is a great source for a gorgeous color selection), but if you want a larger pennant, you will want to get a ½ yard of felt rather than a sheet.
I know it can feel intimidating to freehand cut the letters from the felt, but just go for it. Have some extra felt on hand in case you need to try it a couple of times, but it will look really sweet with a hand-drawn look, so don’t stress about getting the letters perfect!
Have fun with it, and be creative! I used the same technique to make the pillows and door hanging in my girls’ shared room, so you can change up the colors and fabric for a completely different look!
Lay Baby Lay started in 2011 shortly after the arrival of my first baby as a place to provide fresh and unique nursery inspiration with a little dose of motherhood experience. This site is my creative outlet and the place where I am able to express all the ideas running around in my head. It is my hope that you will also be inspired to create spaces for your little ones that are full of imagination, color, and delight and maybe find a little encouragement in this crazy but wonderful journey of having babies and watching them grow.
