One project I haven’t shared with you yet is the bunting that I made for one of our summer parties. I’ve been wanting to try make my own bunting for awhile now. I love bunting, it is festive, fun, bright and a great decor accent for entertaining. I wanted to make something that I could use for different events – birthdays, BBQ’s, you name it.
Overall making the bunting was pretty straightforward and quick. I started by picking my fabric and cutting into bunting flags using this free template from Chickabug (what I love is that you can customize depending on the size you want).
Then I sewed the edges on each flag (I followed these fabulous instructions from Joyful Abode), turned them inside out and finished by edging with a black satin ribbon (folded in half and then ironed). I ended up with four strands – two long and two short. Here is how they turned out:
I can’t wait to use the bunting again for the next party!!! I’m almost tempted to make more…
