Every year we host a Canada Day celebration for our family and staff. We eat and laugh and play and end the evening with a multitude of fireworks. This year I want to dress up our home for the party so I purchased a solar Canada Day lantern from our store and made a pennant to hang over our deck.
I chose fabric in yellow (the colours of our deck decor) and red (for Canada of course!). I cut out triangles in fabric that was folded in half with the right sides together. They are 6 inches at the widest point and 8 inches long. When they are opened up they look like narrow diamonds.
I then folded them over a length of twine (wrong sides together) and ran stitching down both edges. If they fray a bit over time I think it will add to the look. After playing around with the spacing I decided to keep them tight together.
And voila! A pennant to add to the festive atmosphere. I think this would be a fun idea for a baby shower or wedding shower too!
I hung it on our deck fence for now but hope to scale a ladder to hang it higher for Canada Day. We will see if I get up the courage or have to find a place a little closer to the ground.
