Paper pennant flags are so fun and festive during the holidays. They are also very easy to make, especially with the printables I created for you. These Christmas pennant flags are great for photos with the kids waving them around. Babies would surely love to hold these with or without the dowel attached.

These pennant flags are 6.6×10.3 inches. Yes, weird sizes I know. This was done in Canva, which was hard to size perfectly to what I needed.

You’ll be getting three Christmas flag pennants with the following saying: MERRY & BRIGHT, MERRY CHRISTMAS, and JOYFUL. There is one flag per page.


Print these out on white cardstock, as it will hold up better.

Use a scissor or paper trimmer to cut out the flag.

Use tape or washi tape to stick to a dowel.

Add some ribbons, yarns, pompoms, and Christmas bows to jazz up your flags!

You can also scale these down to a smaller size and use them as decorations around the house. I’m sure your kids will have fun placing them around the house.

Here are some suggestions:

Put them into a nice vase and they can be the centerpiece of your table.

Use as props for adorable photos.

Attach your flags to string to make a Christmas banner. Attach some family photos to the banner.
