Make It: Mark the felt, then cut out a pennant silhouette using fabric scissors. Next create a second layer using a coordinating fabric cut two inches shorter in height and width than the felt. Add wooden letters directly to the fabric with wood glue to spell out names or a holiday message. Add grommets along the edges, and attach to the chair with ribbon to finish.
Put old men’s shirts to new use this holiday season as garland which doubles as a useable advent calendar. Once the banding is attached to each pennant, hang your finished garland along the banister or drape around the Christmas tree. As children count down the days leading to Christmas, allow them to take a treat or gift from a pocket each day.

The same rule of three (main colors, that is) that applies to selecting an indoor color scheme also works when planning an outdoor party. Choose three main colors to create a theme then carry those colors throughout with accessories like napkins, plates, place cards, paper pom-poms, pennants or balloons.
