I'm so excited to be creating a cowgirl birthday party for my daughter's 2nd Birthday! My daughter's favorite show is Sheriff Callie's Wild West on Disney Junior so we decided to make her a Sheriff Callie inspired cowgirl birthday party. It is so adorable when she drags the rocking horse into the living room to sit on and watch the show. I love paisley, bandana print, and anything with a cowboy/cowgirl theme so it's a dream come true to be able to create this cowgirl themed birthday party.
When I did decorations for my son's Mickey and the Roadster Racer Party, I made a fabric garland and it looked adorable so I wanted to make something like it for my daughters (just not exactly the same). So I decided to use pink bandana fabric and cut it into triangles and make a garland. This project is very easy and cheap to make. I spent $2 on the bandana fabric and I had the ribbon, the pinking shears and the hot glue gun/glue. Honestly you could use ribbon from the Dollar Store and you don't have to use pinking shears, regular scissors will work great to.

- Pennant Pattern to trace
I used my Cricut Explore to cut out the pennant pattern to trace because I am not good at free hand cutting. If you don't have a Cricut Explore just use a ruler to create a triangle pennant shape.
I traced and cut the pennants out of the fabric and put little lines in the circle holes so I knew where to cut to make slits to hang the banner.
I strung the banner and hung it up to see how it looked and taped the pennants in place to the ribbon. Tape the pennants to the ribbon to make sure you have enough pennants and to space them as you want on the banner.
I hot glued the pennants to the ribbon and I hot glued the corners of the pennants to so it looked perfect when it was hanging.
Then I cut strips of the bandana fabric that were left and made bows to add to the garland because everything is better with bows. Then I glued the bows between the pennants.
Your cowgirl birthday bunting is all ready for your party. My garland is about 5 feet long for the space that I needed and I have extra fabric, so remember to buy enough fabric depending on the space your using it for. More cowgirl birthday party ideas will be coming as I create a cute cowgirl party for my little cowgirl.
