Happy Tax Day, fiends! Last week was Spring Break for us and so I’m still playing catch up. Oh and we had to submit those pesky tax returns. Crazy times! But I thought I’d share this super easy Pom Pom Banner idea with you today. I posted about this cute paper pennant banner I made for a friend’s baby shower on Instagram and was surprised at the response I got! So I thought I’d write a quick post and share it on here as well :)

I’m all about using trims and random things for my banners. I’ve used ric rac, ribbon, lace, pom poms, bakers twine, fabric, and hemp twine to name a few.

Paper pennant banner with giant ric rac :: love the look!

Above I used giant yellow ric rac for a banner for my little girl’s first birthday party last spring. {You should really go check it out! The theme was Vintage Hot Air Balloons and it turned out super cute! You can check out this video that features some of the prep as well.}

You can really use anything on your banners! When you use something unexpected like ric rac or mini pom poms, it adds personality to your banner. As you can see, my banners are fairly simple, just paper and trim. That way I can reuse them or decorate with them. I love to craft, but I don’t want to spend hours and hours on just one craft. So quick and easy paper pennant banners are definitely my style!

Quick Paper Pennant Banner


1. Cut 17 – 4″ pennants using your die cutter, die, and scrapbook paper.

2. Run a thin line of hot glue on the front side about 1/4″ down on the top edge of one paper pennant.

3. Apply pom pom trim over hot glue and secure in place. Repeat with remaining 16 pennants. I spaced my pennants about 1.5″ apart.

I love using banners at parties, showers, or gatherings! They can go about anywhere!

They’re perfect for tables, walls, mantels, doorways, and lots of other fun places. And afterwards, they are great to add to kids’ room decor or holidays.
