How to make an Organizational Cork Pennant Banner?

To make a cork pennant banner, use a ruler and decide the size you would like for each pennant to be.

Mine are 7″ long and 4″ wide at the top.  I started by cutting out four cork rectangles using an xacto knife.  Then I made a triangle template with one and cut out the rest into shape accordingly.

Once my cork triangles were cut, I used painter’s tape to create the painted stripe patterns.  Using a lined cutting mat was really helpful in keeping the lines consistent and accurate.

Painting Cork

Be sure to press the edges of your tape and then paint AWAY from the tape.  This will help with any tape squeezing underneath the tape and messing up your straight lines.

Once the lines have been painted, remove the tape.  Make sure to do this before the paint dries.

Next, use hot glue to secure your yarn to the cork boards.  This is mostly decorative.  I will be using command strips on the individual cork pieces when hanging it on the wall.

For one last extra flair, I whipped up two easy yarn tassels and secured them to one side of the pennant.  I also added these mini tassels… because precious.
