Celebrate family pride with a homemade banner that represents your collective interests.

What you'll need

  • 2 yards of 72-inch-wide felt
  • Assorted 9- by 12-inch felt rectangles
  • 3 1/2 yards of decorative cording
  • Craft glue

How to make it

  1. Trim the large piece of felt into pennants, one for each family member. Make an extra for the center of the banner and glue on letters (cut from a contrasting felt square) to spell your family name. You may want to consider using liquid embroidery paint to inscribe a motto on the flag, such as United We Stand or Do Your Best.

  2. Individuals can decorate their own pennants by gluing on a variety of felt shapes. A dancer, for example, might choose pink ballet slippers. And don't forget to include a likeness of the family pet.

  3. To assemble the banner, place the completed pennants on a flat surface, spacing them about 3 inches apart. Run a bead of glue along the upper edge of each one. Lay the cording on top of the glue and press down gently to make it stick.

  4. Once the glue is thoroughly dry, you're ready to raise the flag.
