Football Pennants

The Big Game is a highlight of this month! Game day snacks, drinks, and décor are a necessity while cheering on your team. Craft these super simple and festive football pennants within minutes with just a few supplies available at Dollar Tree. Hang them over your spread of snacks or around your big screen. They’re the perfect touch of décor that will complement any team's colors. 

Shop at Dollar Tree – Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • Brown Tissue Paper (10 sheets per pennant)
  • White Paper
  • Tape
  • Scissors
  • String

Easy Step-by-Step Directions:

  1. Lay 10 sheets of square brown tissue paper on a flat surface.
  2. Cut off 4" from the top of the first two sheets.
  3. Then cut 2" from the top of the next two sheets.
  4. Flip all 10 sheets upside down and repeat steps 2 and 3.
  5. Begin folding all 10 sheets of stacked tissue paper starting with the non-cut side. Fold every 2" accordion style (see image #1).
  6. Once completely folded, tie the tissue together at the middle with string (see image #2). Create a slipknot loop for hanging.
  7. Begin to open and separate each individual piece of tissue paper (see image #3). “Fluff” each piece out to create a full football (see image #4).
  8. Use scissors for any trimming to better form the football shape.
  9. Cut two "laces" from white paper and tape one on each side of the pennant (see image #5).
  10. Attach additional string to the slipknot loop if needed and hang from your desired location. Go team!
