Glue Pennant Together

Apply felt glue to back of embellishments and press into pennant banner. Insert ties between two layers of felt and affix with more felt glue. Apply letters and numbers in same fashion until banner is complete. Allow glue to dry completely before hanging. Tip: Glue may show through felt while wet, but will not be visible once dry.

Make and Hang Stick Curtain Rod

Locate a straight stick a few inches wider than window casing and two Y-shaped sticks. Cut Y's to approximately 8 inches long, but adjust sizing to fit scale of the window (Image 1). Drill through Y-shaped sticks into wood window frame with self-boring wood screws (Image 2). Repeat with other Y-shaped stick, making sure stick looks level to the eye. Tie pennants onto stick to create valance (Image 3).
