Super Cute Word Wall How-To

I love word walls. I mostly love building them with kids... and although that doesn't always work out, this year I made a step in the right direction by creating a super cute, no-excuse-not-to word wall. I am sure I saw this somewhere on someone else's blog, but I have no clue. 

Step 1: Laminate 12x12 inch carstock (I bought a pack at Michael's for less than $5). Cut each piece into 6x6 inch squares.

Step 2: For each 6" square, make a mark in the middle (3"). I used a crayon because that's what my two-year-old had all over the living room. :)

Step 3: Using the half-way mark, hold your square on a diagonal and cut from corner to half-way mark. Do the same from the other corner. This will make your pennant.

Step 4: Use alphabet stickers for each letter and hot glue ribbon across the top. Just as a common sense tip that I almost forgot... Lay out your pennants to make sure they fit the space! I got lucky!

SUPER cute, super easy way to dress up your room. All for under $10! These pictures were taken before school started, and now it's full of words. We used black felt strips and velcroed (spelling, anyone?!?) our words to the felt! So easy! I'll see if I can get a picture of it now soon.
