Easy Peasy DIY Bunting

First of all, I’d like to congratulate Lauren and Matt on getting hitched – Yay! And secondly, I want to show off the super cute bunting I made for their wedding.

It was a good ol’ fashioned country wedding, so I went all out ‘barn dance’ with my fabric choices.

This bunting really is easy peasy to make! Not a lot is needed just some good-sized scraps of material, twine, a ruler, card, and scissors or, if you’re looking for precision, rotary cutters. To assemble I used a sewing machine, but you could probably use a glue gun if you don’t sew.

My first job was to decide which size bunting I wanted, I then made a flag template using a cereal box and used it to cut out all my fabric flags.

Once everything was cut out, I started sewing the flags on to lengths of twine using a zig zag stitch. To do this I placed each flag right side down on the machine, laid the twine over the top edge of the fabric, folded the top edge over and stitched. Simples, right?
