2) To make the pennants for the banner, trace a bowl about the size that you want the pennants. For the word FREEDOM, I used 7 pennants and 2 more for the ends. My bowl was about 5.5" in diameter.

3) Fold each circle in half and cut along the fold.

8) Pull the ribbon down and tie another piece of twine at the top of the ribbon bundle below the fold and cut the extra twine leaving the twine on the top for hanging.
