Your little one can cheer on every slam dunk with these colourful pennants. All you need is stiffened felt, tacky glue, dowels, precut letters, glitter and any other decoration you desire.

1. Cut out two identical triangles from stiffened felt.

2. Glue pieces together, sandwiching a dowel in place.

3. Add a strip of felt to cover the dowel.

4. Decorate with letters, cut-outs and glitter.

Nothin’ but net! Go team!
