Around the same time that my Grandma gave me a slew of old crocheting magazines, I also inherited pages beyond pages from an old cook book. I’ve used the old pages for lots of things, but my pile seems to be endless! So I set a challenge for myself to incorporate them into Christmas decorations. Preemptively I made a bushel of ornaments, but since Sean has halted Christmas tree shopping until December, I was forced to use the papers in less obvious ways, sneaking a bit of the season into our apartment in a more mild fashion.
Making the pennant was quick and easy. To begin, I cut triangles from the paper. I then wrote each letter free hand with a red sharpie marker. Finally I taped each triangle to a piece of long twine. Personally, I like the effect that the text has peeking through the red. I also tried a black market but wasn’t as impressed with the boldness it presented. To hang it, I draped it over my window and stuck some tape on the back.
