A Morning with Breakfast Television - Making your own Bunting

Bunting - I'm know it is not a common tradition here in Canada but in England Bunting comes out to celebrate almost every occasion. A football team is in the finals, the queen comes to visit, a new baby: you see Bunting! Bright colourful strings of mini flags are such a lovely way to bring a little joy to an occasion or space.

There is a general conception that bunting flags are high maintenance: you have to buy fabric and you have to whip out the sewing machine. If you know me you will know I can barely sew a button so this craft is sewing free! You just need a few supplies to take part in this lovely tradition from Jolly old England.

Here is what you'll need:
  • Hole punch
  • Scrapbook paper (from Michaels) - stiff paper is best
  • Cardboard
  • Twine
  • Scissors (with a scalloped edge)

That's it! 


1) Trace your bunting flag shape on a piece of cardboard, mine are 5" wide. Or use this template.

2) Cut out the bunting flags

2) Hole punch each end of the flag

3) Run twine through them all and hang!

Ikea just came out with this adorable children's bed surrounded with Bunting.

You can always write a cute message

Pretty right?

I love seeing bunting used in a nursery!
