This year, give your sweetie a Valentine's Day gift they'll be proud to display. This DIY monogram pennant flag is striking and stylish enough to give as a Valentine's Day present. All it takes is felt and glue. 

What You'll Need:

  • Black felt
  • Ruler
  • Black pen
  • Scissors
  • White felt
  • Hot-glue gun
  • Printed initials (3 inches by 1.5 inches)
  • Pins

Step 1: Cut felt


Fold a piece of black felt in half lengthwise. Using a ruler, mark a line from the folded tip to the bottom corner. This will form the elongated triangle for the pennant. Cut along the mark.

Step 2: Add details


Cut a piece of felt 9 inches by 1/2 inch. Cut four pieces of white felt 2-1/2 inches by 1/2 inch. Glue the longer piece of felt on the long edge of the pennant. Trim the edges. Glue the short pieces of felt to the back side long edge of pennant to make little flag ends.

Step 3: Trace initials


Pin the white felt on top of the printed letters. Trace the initials onto the white felt. You can also freehand draw your letters. Cut out the letters. Try a word or phrase instead of initials for a Valentine's Day message.

Step 4: Attach letters


Once your letters are cut, use a hot-glue gun to adhere the letters to the felt flag. Press gently to ensure they're secure, and let dry completely before hanging.
