Christmas Movie Quote Pennants

Hello makers! It’s Thanksgiving week and we are loving all the family time we are getting in. We decided to do a non traditional Thanksgiving on Thursday and get out of town to explore! Then we will have our traditional dinner with family on Saturday and I cannot wait! It’s practically the best meal of the year, wouldn’t you agree? Well, as you know, I’ve started my Christmas decorating already. I decided to pretty much purge everything from my decor and start fresh this year. So that means lots of Christmas crafts and DIYs, and I’m not mad about it. Today I want to share the Christmas Movie Quote Pennants I made for our new tree, but you can hang them anywhere!

We absolutely LOVE Christmas movies and it’s a goal to add new ones to our collection each year (just like our Christmas books)! These were so fun to make and they were the finishing touches to our tree. I really love them and the quotes we decided on. We even made Christmas Movie Quote Mugs too

In case you want to make some for your holiday decor, I thought I’d share the tutorial with y’all. You will need:

  • Drop cloth material (or something similar)
  • Black heat transfer vinyl (HTV)
  • Small wooden dowels
  • Jute or twine
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Pen/marker
  • Hot glue and gun
  • Iron
  • Silhouette Cameo

First thing you want to do is draw your pennants on the drop cloth (you can find drop cloths at Home Depot and Lowe’s). I used a fabric marker and ruler for this. I measured them to be about 5 1/2 inches by 6 inches (to the point), then cut them out. The cool part about drop cloth material is that you really don’t have the hem the edges if you don’t want to. I like the rough cut look for this project. 

Next I hot glued the small wooden dowels (found at Dollar Tree) to the top of the pennant by folding it over the dowel. Be sure some of the dowel is sticking out on both ends. 

Then you want to cut a piece of jute (mine was about 5 inches long) to tie to each end of the wooden dowel.

Now you can design your movie quotes in the Silhouette Design Studio (or use mine, links at the end of the post). Be sure to mirror your image and load your HTV into the cameo with the shiny side down (refer to the directions on your HTV package). After you weed the design (leaving the shiny piece on), place it on the pennant. Iron it onto the drop cloth material (high heat) by pushing down firmly and moving to different places. I also recommend putting a piece of material in between the iron and the HTV for protection. Towards the end, I remove the extra material and press down firmly with the iron one more time. 

Carefully peal the plastic sheet off the HTV, making sure the vinyl is secured to the pennant. If it’s not, iron again. 

Now they are ready to hang! I just love them on our tree…

Can you guess the Christmas movies we picked by reading the quotes? If so, we can be besties. 

I absolutely love them all. They are such fun and unique ornaments.

Do you think you’ll make them for your tree? They make it so fun and magical! Everyone that comes over wants to read them and yell out the Christmas movie they are from.

Happy Thanksgiving, friends! I am so thankful you are here and I appreciate all your support with this blog of mine!

Snow Globe Ornaments

Hello makers! We are down to 5 more days until Thanksgiving and 5 more weekends until Christmas! This year is flying by… I wish I could slow time down a bit or press the pause button. Since I can’t, I decided to make Christmas last as long as possible (aka: decorate early) and get as many Thanksgivings in as we can (we have 3 scheduled with family and friends). I just love this time of year and this season of motherhood. Christmas is still magical and I’m hoping that lasts a while longer. So we put up the tree and my daughter happily helped me decorate it. We even made these fun Snow Globe Ornaments (last year…oops!) and they are some of my favorite ornaments to hang up. I love crafting with my girl!

These ornaments were so easy and fun to make… do you want to make some too? First you’ll need to gather up your supplies. I bought all of mine at Michael’s.

  • plastic ornaments that open
  • mini trees
  • plastic baby deer
  • faux snow
  • hot glue and gun
  • super glue
  • twine/jute
  • scissors

To make these, just open your plastic ornaments and hot glue a tree or two and maybe a deer to the bottom of one half of the ornament.  I also like glue the tiny contents to each other as well… so I glued the trees together that were touching and I glued the deer to the trees as well.

Add some faux snow and close up the ornament with the other half. Put tiny dots of super glue around the opening of the ornament to secure it (this step is optional). Loop twine through the top of the ornament to easily hang it from the tree. I even added a jute bow the the top with some hot glue. 

See! Easy and they are SO cute. I love them on my flocked Christmas tree. But it’s hard to get a good photo of them without catching my reflection! 

What do you think friends? Would you hang some of these Snow Globe Ornaments on your tree?
