Playroom spruce up…and obsession with pennant garland

My name is Kelly and I’m obsessed with pennant garland. 

Check out some of my favorites found on the WWW.

AND…THIS LINK is the grandaddy of them all!!!  Oh, how I LOVE pinterest!!!

Our playroom started out like this:



AND I WAS SOOOOOOOOO SICK OF LOOKING AT ALL THAT PLAINNESS...is “plainness” a word?  Not sure…but continuing on….

Don’t you LOVE those doors by the way?  Bought them for $10 at a yard sale!  I had no idea what I would do with them but I KNEW they had to be mine! 

I ultimately decided they belonged in our playroom.  I would hang the kids artwork and photos of them all over it.  Did I know how?  Nope but then I saw this idea on Pinterest.  GREAT IDEA!!!! !

I made them!  You can find the tutorial here.  BUT, because I’m AWESOME like that they were too big and didn’t work.  Yeah, nice I know!  I ended up just using paper clips and it worked perfectly (why didn’t I do that in the first place?  One of life’s great mysteries…)

So back to the pennant garland obsession…yes, I LOVE IT!!!!  I thought WHAT A GREAT IDEA for decorating the playroom!!!!!  SO CHEERY!!  SO HIP!!!  SO PERFECT!!!!

I would have LOVED to make my own but I’m DEF limited on time with the the 4 kiddos around here so I found some SUPER CUTE chalkboard pennant garland on etsy


Check out the finished wall!  I LOVE IT!

  5. Wow! I love all the pennant ideas floating around. And I thought it was hilarious that you made those awesome pins, and then just used paperclips. I can't tell you how many times I have donut the same sort of thing. Oh well. Live and learn.=)
