- between 14 and 16 felt souvenir pennants
- sewing needle
- spool of thread
Spread pennants out in a circular formation, alternating color and theme until you're happy with their placement.
Place Pennants Face-to-Face
Starting on one end of the circular formation, flip a pennant on top of the one beside it. Next, move the top pendant down 3/4" from the top edge of the bottom pendant. Tip: Allowing a 3/4" gap ensures a consistent, solid clean line at the tops and bottoms of each pendant. This also creates a more graphic look by eliminating blank solid areas from peeking through.
Stitch Pennants Together
Thread needle then stitch the first two pennants together. Starting from the top thick end of each pair of overlapping pennants, loop threaded needle in and out, creating a whip-stitch. Continue stitching until you are four inches away from the bottom tip, then create a knot and cut thread. This extra unstitched space will allow room for the base of a tree to be placed through the skirt and into the tree stand.
