DIY: Bunting 101!
Bunting is a cheap and simple way to add a splash of color to your celebration! (expert advice)
Bunting is a very cheap and easy way to add color to your celebration. Whether you are planning a bridal shower or picnic reception, these little flags provide major impact with humble materials and a little elbow grease.
Materials: Tissue Paper, scissors, glue stick and string
Step One: Decide how large you want each flag and then cut out several sheets at once. You'll want to cut out pieces that are double the desired flag size so that they can be folded over.
Step Two: Once you've finished cutting you're ready to glue. With a fresh glue stick quickly swipe half the flag area. Lay string down halfway through and fold the tissue over the string. Be sure to apply glue to the middle area of the flag so that it adheres to the string. Repeat until you have enough for your event. (It can take a while to produce a lot so best to settle down in front of a movie while you work.)
Step Three: To safely store your flags wrap them around an empty cardboard gift wrap roll or paper towel roll so they don't wrinkle.
