Celebrate the season with this fun Christmas Felt Pennant Flag! You can customize the colors and accessories in so many ways to make it match your seasonal decor. You’re never too old to believe!
I just love vintage pennant flags. What’s not to love about the classic color combinations and fonts from a bygone era?! I thought it would be fun to make a Christmas version that can be used for years to come.
Assembling the flag
This project is super easy and only takes about three steps to complete. First off, you’re going to need to assemble the supplies. I used just basic craft felt, Beacon Fabri-Tac, and a sheet of Iron-On Transfer Paper for Dark Fabrics from OnlineLabels.com.
You can either download the “Believe” SVG file below or print out the PDF version from the OnlineLabels.com template library. Use the SVG file if you’re planning on using a digital cutting machine to cut the wording (Cricut is my favorite!)
Use the PDF file if you want to print and cut out the “Believe” wording by hand. By the way, don’t worry if the lettering isn’t perfect. Vintage pennant flags never were!
HINT: Don’t forget that you don’t have to mirror the image when cutting from Iron-On Transfer Paper for DARK fabrics.
Once you have the wording cut from the transfer paper, remove the backing and carefully place on a cut pennant flag. Cover flag with a protective fabric piece and apply heat with iron.
With the wording in place, cut a 2.75″ x 9″ strip of coordinating felt and glue to the side with Fabri-Tac. Cut two 7″ x .75″ pieces, fold in half, and adhere to back of pennant flag with glue.
