Summer is on its way with a heatwave this weekend! So, whats the best way to make the most of the sun? Garden parties, BBQ’s and good ole’ fun! Today, I’m going to show you how to create a simple bunting to give your garden that summer pick me up!
For this you shall need as many fabrics as you wish! (A perfect way of using up scrap fabrics). Ribbon or lace to place your triangles on and a bunting template.
Place your template on fold of your fabric, and pin. By placing the template on the fold, when you cut you shall get a lovely folded triangle, which you will need to keep it in place once hanged.
Cut carefully around your template.
Do this step and the previous for all your fabrics. You can cut using straight scissors of funk it up a bit by using patterned shears! Give it a bump effect or a pointy effect!
Once you have cut all your triangles, you need to start putting your ribbon/lace in the middle of each triangle. Be sure to measure the space in between each triangle to get a even finish. Pin down the ribbon.
Time to start sewing! Simply start from the top of the edge of the triangle and sew round. Do this for each of your triangles and they will all be safely kept in place.
And there you have a beautiful bunting, perfect for all your garden occasions and looking wonderful in the sunshine!
If you wanted to personalise, you could add letters to each bunting, creating a name or word. You could embellish it a bit more with pegs and hang photos/decorations off of it or for the night time, wrap little fairy lights around it – giving your garden a summery glow!
