Plaid Banner Pennants

Create a special display piece for a special little one’s room or play area. Add letters for a name, nickname or special word and then string together and hang.

For best results, please read all instructions before beginning project. Refer to photo for color and design placement.


  1.      Wipe pennants (number needed to spell out name) with damp sponge to remove bisque dust.
  2.      Use simple block letters to spell out name (approximately 2” high). Trace letters on contact paper and cut out.
  3.      Remove backing from letters and stick to center of each pennant. Make sure edges are well sealed.
  4.      Brush three coats Neon Red to each pennant including back. Let dry.
  5.      Cut some masking tape and lay across pennant (top to bottom). Leave 1” space between each strip of tape.
  6.      Dilute some Black to a light wash and brush across the open spaces between tape pieces. Let dry.
  7.      Remove tapes and re-tape in the opposite direction leaving an inch between tape pieces.
  8.      Brush same diluted Black mixture on the open spaces. Let dry. Remove tape pieces.
  9.      Where the Blacks intersect, color will be darker. Use Liner brush and paint in a solid Black. Let dry.
  10.   Remove the stencil letters. Clean edges or smears if necessary. 
  11.   Stilt each pennant on kiln shelf and fire to cone 06.
  12.   Brush a coat of Pure Brilliance to the white, bisque letters. Let dry. Add a second coat to cover the whole pennants. Let dry.
  13.   Stilt each and re-fire to cone 06.
