Easy DIY Pennants

After stumbling on these adorable mini pennants from Three Potato Four, I was stoked about the possibility to give my plants a boost of personality. But as with all our other DIY projects—wood bead candle holder, Michelle’s reclaimed pallet cow, etc—I knew I could easily make these myself. Follow along for this super simple DIY that anyone—even kids—can do in less than an hour. Call that an accomplished afternoon.

Step 3

Wrap the contrasting felt evenly around the edge and glue in place. For the back, make sure to glue only along the edge to leave a “pocket” for the skewer.

Step 4

Once glued, trim your contrasting felt to match the edges of the pennant.

What do you guys think? This was such a simple and cheap DIY to occupy a rainy afternoon. Plus I honestly love the pennant that lives in my house plant. I could also see making these in different team’s colors for a fun Super Bowl party or rowdy game night.

Make one of these yourself and let us know how it goes!

Attaching a wood fence to a chainlink fence

As I mentioned in my last fence/gate update post, I helped Erika attach a wood fence to the chainlink fence in her backyard. The process was similar to when I converted a chainlink fence to a wood fence, except in this case, we left the chainlink fence intact. This method is a good option if you want to add a little more privacy to your yard or camouflage a chainlink fence while you wait to save up for a completely new fence.

Fence Updates and Two-Panel Wood Driveway Gate Plans

Hellooooo, I’m thinking about fences again! You all had the pleasure of following along as I moved and rebuilt the fence in my backyard and then converted a chainlink fence into a wood fence along my driveway, and now it’s finally time to build that driveway gate. Of course, I can’t just build a driveway gate and leave it at that, I’ve also decided to cap the entire fence to cover up the dogear pickets and give everything a cleaner and more finished look. HOORAY!
