I love organizing. My family has not received the same memo… so in order to get them all on board with keeping things orderly and tidy, I like to create PRETTY organizing things. Today, I am sharing the most simple way to keep those papers or precious pieces of art work on display but in a fun cute way! Check out how to make these fun DIY Colorful Cork Pennants.

Using a ruler, decide upon the size you would like for each pennant. Mine are 7″ long and 4″ wide at the top. I started by cutting out four cork rectangles. Then I made a triangle template and cut them into shape accordingly.
Once my cork triangles were cut, I used painter’s tape to create the stripe patterns. Using a lined cutting mat was really helpful in keeping the lines consistent and accurate.
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. 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.
The end result is the most adorable place for my daughter to hang and show off all her special notes, art work and creations!
