Jul.Christmas.Noel -  Mini Me Bunting

 

 

 

 

 Quick & Easy Mini Me Bunting is the first project

in my new series

 

Jul.Christmas.Noel

As there are only 12 weeks until Christmas,

I am  getting a head start on with  my decorations.

This year, I am going to try something new  – no more red!

I will be using pastels, a few brights & white.

 

Which is where the Mini Me Bunting comes in.

 It’s a really Quick & Easy project.

Inspired in part by the fabric bunting I made last November

for a lovely picnic in the park,

& all of the lovely Paper & Washi tape mini bunting

that I keep seeing on Pinterest.

Using up some of

the leftover fabric from last years bunting

this is what I did…

 

Materials:
 

Modge Podge (Fabric)
 

String e.g. Divine Twine
 

Small paint brush (for glue)
 

Scissors (or pinking shears) 

Fabric leftovers

Bunting Flags:

 

a) Fold over your fabric (wrong side to wrong side)

b) Finger Press along the fold line

c) Cut a triangle shape – start both cuts from the folded side of the fabric

  • When you unfold the fabric, you should end up with a diamond shape
  •  My flags measure 3cm across all sides. 

 N.B

To keep the folded shape, lay out all of your flags & iron them.

Assembly:

 

a) Lay your string (1x meter) out on a flat surface.

b) Slide your flags over & onto your string at 2 cm intervals.

c) Spread a thin layer of Modge Podge onto the bottom triangle layer & string.

d) Gently press the top triangle layer down – repeat.

  • When the string is full, hang to dry.

N.B

I found working in batches of 10 flags worked best for me.

 It really is that easy.

 

How quick the project takes is entirely up to you.

I got a little carried away when I was cutting my flags,

and had to spend ‘some time’ making up

approx 10 meters of bunting.

Enjoy!

P.S How are you getting ready for ‘Chrummer Time’?
