I've talked about this craft project before but I thought it deserved it's own blog post. I didn't do a step by step tutorial because it's pretty self-explanitory.
The perfect tree limb/branch fell into our yard off our birch tree and I knew I HAD to do something with it in the house. I was originally going to spray paint it white but I'm glad I didn't now.
I let the tree branch dry out in the garage for a day or two and made sure I didn't bring in any critters with it. I trimmed it up with a hand saw and then went to work. I'm still a novice with the sewing machine (basically I can barely sew in a straight line or at a steady speed) so I used my handy-dandy hot glue gun.
I picked up some pretty fabric at the local fabric store and got a yard of each. That was beyond plenty. You can make the pennants as wide or as narrow as you like. Mine are about 10-11inches across. I hot glued two sides together to make them a little sturdier and then hot glued them onto the branch. Wah-La! Instant craft project. I figured out just where I wanted it while it was drying in the garage and Josh hung it up for me. Right above our laundry "room". It looks super cute!
