Create a template for your pennant and trace it onto the dropcloth. We cut out about 10 triangles.
Then we laid them out to dry before we dipped the other ends. (Note the towel we destroyed in this process in the right hand corner.)
They got this great blue jean and weathered red color almost immediately and we were so excited! The colors were perfect for my All-American boy themed party.
For the sign, we measured a 2×3 piece of dropcloth and cut it out.
Monica used the traditional method of twisting and tying random sections with rubber bands,
The next day, we hot-glued rope to the backs of the pennants right along the seam of the dropcloth. That made it easy to glue on a straight line!
This was a fun project (albeit, very messy!) For tons more tie dye inspiration and how-to’s check out Tulip Tie Dye at these places:
