Birthday Photo Pennant

A few weeks ago we celebrated my husbands 40th birthday!  I threw him a surprise party and had a great night.  One of the decorations I threw together was this birthday photo pennant.

It was a very simple construction project, with no lasting marks.  I took 11 8 X 10 photos and clipped them with clothes pins to an old piece of trim from a blanket I deconstructed years prior.  Then I pinned it in front of the kitchen window.  The light shinned through the photos giving them a nice glow (albeit pink in some of the older photos :)

I loved the festive look the photos gave and all the guests loved looking at the photos of Justin growing up.  Once the party was over I just pulled all the photos down and placed them back in his memory box.

  • HI Amanda What a great surprise for your hubby. I’ll bet he just loved that photo pennant you made for him. You had all those young photos of him already? You’re such a nice wife. Turning 40 is a big b/d. Turning 50 is a liberating b/d. But we don’t want to rush the next 10 years, they’re important ones. happy Days

    • JaneEllen, He was definitely surprised! I was very lucky to have a Mother in Law who trusted us with her photo collection of my husband. He is so organized, they were easy to find.
