Quick & Easy Mini Me Bunting is the first project
in my new series
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…
Modge Podge (Fabric)
String e.g. Divine Twine
Small paint brush (for glue)
Scissors (or pinking shears)
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.
To keep the folded shape, lay out all of your flags & iron them.
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.
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.
P.S How are you getting ready for ‘Chrummer Time’?
