How To Make Bunting The Easy Steps


When I think of bunting I think back to the Silver Jubilee of 1977 and later on the Diamond Jubille , bunting is indicative of street parties.

Who doesn't love to see pretty bunting flapping in the breeze on a summers day with a gentle breeze blowing through.

And oh how I loved bunting at the last Jubilee , bunting is fun , bunting is lazy summers days.

How To Make Paper Bunting

You can use any paper you like from old wrapping paper, to comics ( just make sure they aren't rare comics old seer music etc.

You will need paper scissors and glue and ribbon.

You can choose a theme floral or perhaps vintage

Cut triangles out of paper using a template for uniformity .

As the bunting is made of paper it won't withstand the ultimate rain we are likely to have , so perfect for indoors.

Fabric bunting

Fabric bunting is as easy as paper bunting to make.
Mother Scuffer loves her bunting in fact she you are there search her blog as she has at least six bunting posts, she loves a good bit of burning does that Mother Scuffer !

Take a look at this 'How to make fabric bunting ' from Rachel Tripp
