Bunting - What you'll need

Step by Step

Step 1: Cut two lengths of bunting, to the length you require.

Step 2: Cut a piece of the fabric ribbon into the shape of the bunting and stamp on your initial.

Step 3: Cut your patterned craft paper into pennants, just a bit smaller than the size of the bunting. The garland has three different sized triangles – we left the smallest ones plain as a contrast.


Step 4: Glue the patterned craft paper triangles to the bunting, alternating the patterns. Then connect the two strings of bunting either side of the fabric pennant. Allow to dry.

Step 5: Once dried attach the banner to the skewers and voila, look 1 is completed!
