What you'll need:
- Fat quarters of 3-4 different yet complimentary fabrics (you can get fat quarters prefolded at any fabric store or you can ask for a cut at the counter, 1/4 yard should suffice)
- Pinking Scissors (the kind with the zig zag edges)
- Twine or ribbon, corresponding to your fabrics
- Glue or thick thread/darning needle (big, dull needle), depending on how you'd like to build
- Craft Paint and brush to apply
So simple, just like I said. You'll want to cut as many triangle shaped pieces, preferable the same sizes, out of corresponding fabrics. Use your pinking scissors. This will keep the fabric from fraying and no sewing edges! Fold over the top an inch or so on each triangle then iron down. You can either assemble using needle and thread or by gluing. I will say that gluing is a whole lot quicker but if you want cute stitching, well, then you need to stitch! Stitching at each corner, leave enough slack to connect each pennant. The length is up to you, just make sure it's equal between each.
With Glue, evenly space each piece and glue between your fold on top. You know I love me some Tacky Glue so that's what I recommend. I actually hung mine to dry so that worked for me.
