DIY Pottery Barn Knockoff- Chalkboard Pennant

I always knew I wanted to incorporate a pennant banner of some sort in Baby Matthew's nursery.  While shopping at Pottery Barn Kids, we came across this adorable chalkboard pennant...

But the $29 price tag was not appealing at all.  Being the Domesticated Diva, I knew I could replicate this for just a couple of dollars.  Here's my knockoff version of it...

|what you will need|
+ chalkboard paint
+ chipboard pennant pieces (found at Hobby Lobby)
+ chalkboard marker
+ ribbon of your choice

|how to|
{1} Paint the chipboard pennant pieces with the chalkboard paint.  Apply two coats.  Allow the paint to dry an hour between coats.
{2} String your ribbon through the pennant banner.
{3} Write the saying or name of your choice on the pennant using the chalkboard marker.
Here is the pennant used during our couple maternity photo shoot...
