{Give Thanks} Fall Bunting

So, I've never made a bunting before, heck, I didn't even know what that was up until a few weeks ago! None the less, I think they're pretty cute for parties, weddings, photography, or holidays! I decided to give it a go and make one for our mantle for Fall!

For this type of bunting you will need scrap book paper, which you can get from Hobby Lobby for 59 cents each, or cheaper if you catch them on sale! You will also need, a glue stick, twine, scissors, and Mod Podge.

I started by cutting my primary paper (the orange polka dot one) in to sheets of 8 x 10 so I could feed them through the printer. Next, create a template triangle out of something sturdy like cardboard. Print out your letters onto you scrap book paper and use your template to trace your shape. A helpful hint, you can hold your printed paper up to a window while holding your template behind it so that it creates a shadowbox effect so you know exactly where to trace your template. Cut out your triangles and glue them onto larger triangles. You don't have to do this step, but I like having a secondary color. Next, I created an outline between my two triangles by gluing twine on the border with my Mod Podge. Last, create small holes in your triangles and weave your twine through to make your hanging strands.

Pretty easy right??
Next on the agenda, a "Just Married" bunting for my Sisters wedding next month!! Ahhh!
Happy Crafting everyone!
