Bunting is a fun way to decorate for a party; it’s easy, pretty, and you can hang it anywhere you like. The other day here at Free People it was my sister’s Bridal Shower and for the occasion I made some bunting to hang delicately on the wall. The theme I used was “a couple in love” and printed out photos of her and her fiance throughout the years they have been together.
The term bunting refers to a collection of flags made out of fabric, plastic, or card and placed onto a ribbon for hanging. What’s great about this festive decoration is that you can get super creative with ideas – there are no limits! Just have fun and make it look pretty.
Here’s how I created the bunting for my sister’s bridal shower.
What you need:
A collection of photographs you want to use
An outline of a triangle
Step one: Position the triangle on the photographs onto an area that you want to be present in the triangle shape. Trace around the triangle on the photograph and do this with every one of them.
Step two: Cut out the triangles that you drew.
Step three: Start placing them onto the ribbon into an order you like best.
Step four: Secure the triangles down with some glue.
And there you have it, some fun bunting for a special occasion!
