DIY Paint Chip Streamers and Pennants

I love collecting paint chips!!! I always go a bit crazy when I go to a hardware store. I think of ways of recycling them and making something neat out of them!! So here are my attempts. A co-worker had a birthday so I wanted to make streamers to hang over her desk.


– Fishing wire or ribbon
– Tape
– Paint chips : 2 of each color or if you want to fold them then you only need one {FREE!!!}

I proceeded to tape one paint chip to the fishing wire and backed the matching color to it.
That is it… easy, fun and SO pretty!

I also used different sizes and folded some of them.

Rachel and I love pennants so I decided to make one!

Next time you are party planning… make sure you stop by your nearest
hardware store for some paint chips!!!

The Six Minute DIY Pennant

I’m sure I’ve mentioned numerous times how I’m not any type of sewer but I still appreciate it. I even took a sewing class and that’s why I have the super strength fabric scissors which I love. I wanted to create something easy but fun to decorate my friend’s desk for her birthday at the last minute and resourcefully produced some Japanese tape and felt I had purchased for a previous project. Conveniently, the color of the tape and felt coordinated well.

I cut up the felt into little pennants of two alternating colors. Don’t worry about cutting them too evenly or perfect–it adds more character 🙂

Next, I lined them up in the middle of the tape so that I had room above to fold the tape over.

I then carefully and evenly pressed down the tape over each felt piece. Obviously, this is what held all the pennants in place without the mess of glue or sewing needles.

There you have it! Prepped and created all in about six minutes.

A Paper Christmas

I love the way Susan of En Pointe Photography decorated her home for the holidays with leaves and garlands she cut out from books. Simple yet so lovely.
