Create a Halloween felt pennant using the Cricut Maker ready for the spooky season!
I love pennants, we have a couple hanging on the wall in our hall, that looks so cute! So I wanted to add a Halloween one to the collection, with witchy vibes. So set to work with some glitter iron-on, a design in Cricut Design Space and some felt!
This is a perfect DIY for your witchy pals or for adding a bit of Halloween decor to your walls without going the whole hog!
YOU WILL NEED:
-Felt in black and gold glitter
-Gold Glitter Iron-on Vinyl
-Cricut Easy Press 2
-Cricut Easy Press Mat

Start on Cricut design space, you can use my project as a basis for your own or just create my project! Here's the link: The basic pennant shape will stay the same, just add your image of choice to the pennant!
First, lay a piece of Glitter iron-on face down onto the mat, make sure to mirror the iron-on part of the design in Design Space.
Then, load the mat into the machine, select glitter iron-on as the material setting and start cutting.
One cut remove from the mat and weed away the excess vinyl using your weeding tool, leaving the design on the clear carrier sheet.
Next cut the two felt sheets on your pink fabric mat, If using the Maker I like to edit tools and use the rotary blade instead of the fine point blade.
Prepare your felt triangle and iron-on design on top of your easy press mat. Heat up your easy press (Check the Cricut heat guide for the correct settings) then press the iron-on onto the felt banner.
Always pre-press felt for at least 10secs to remove any moisture, before pressing on your design.
Sandwich the ties and the pennant in between the glittery strip and the pennant and glue with a glue gun, You could always stitch this. (I was just being lazy!)
Tada! One witch pennant banner that's a perfect subtle Halloween decoration if you don't fancy going full out!
