DIY: pennant plate tutorial from burlap+blue

I have a sweet little DIY guest post from burlap+blue for y'all today! Hope you enjoy :)


Hello, Yellow Songbird readers!
My name is Linda from
burlap+blue, and I am honored to be guest posting here today sharing one of my favorite new creations...

I LOVE creating these pennant plates....they are fun, easy to make, and would fit in a million different places in my home.

ceramic pen
white plate
paper or fabric for bunting
mod podge
acrylic sealer (optional)

Step 1: Gather your supplies. I used scrapbook paper for my bunting, and just cut my triangles out free-form. Feel free to use a pattern, if you'd like!

Step 2: Using a ceramic pen, hand write the word or phrase you'd like in the center of your plate. A note about ceramic pens-I was so intimidated by them at first, but they really are easy to use! I bought pens in a couple of different widths (Michaels has the best selection), and if you make a mistake you can wipe it off (immediately) with a damp paper towel.

Step 3: Using your Mod Podge and a sponge brush, adhere your triangles to your plate in a banner shape. Even though I was not planning on using this plate for anything other than decorative use, I then went over my triangles with a paint brush dipped in acrylic sealer. A top coat of Mod Podge would probably work just as well, though.

And there you have it!

Thanks for letting me spend some time with you all, today!


thanks, Linda!
