Stencil a bird in a random spot. Position the bird stencil in your desired spot. Tape the stencil in position, load the stencil paintbrush with sugar plum paint, tap off the excess paint. Working directly above the stencil, tap the brush over the bird design. Lift the stencil to reveal the design. Wash stencil and reuse.
Using low tack tape, tape off the edge of each triangle.
Paint the edges with Jamaican sea paint.
Lookie....nice clean edge.
Once dry, remove the tape.
Hand sew buttons to the design.

Sew the tops of the pennant flags to the center of the pompom trim.
