By: Abigail Barnes

  • card stock in colors of the rainbow
  • scissors
  • double-sided tape
  • 2 decorative straws or lollipop sticks
  • twine or ribbon

Measure and Cut Pennants

Cut two 3/4x1-1/4" rectangles out of each color, and trim a small triangle shape out of the bottom of each. 

Attach Twine

Lay a long piece of twine or ribbon on your work surface, and sandwich the twine between each pair of pennant pieces using double-sided tape.

Attach Bunting Posts

Add a piece of double-sided tape near the top of both straws, and wrap the ends of the twine around each. Insert the straws into the cake, angling the straws outward.
