Cute Bunting DIY

I believe that bunting is the ultimate decoration! Whether it’s a party, celebration, event, BBQ, knees up, frankly there is no occasion that cannot be improved upon by a string of bunting.

Make easy bag bunting

We do have hand-made bunting in the shop, however when the mood takes me I also like to make my own. I have a knack of creating bunting out of anything, I have recycled allsorts into bunting; old jumpers, paper plates, baking cups, playing cards, old maps and books (my ‘dirty bunting’ as friends called it is infamous and made from unwanted copies of Fifty Shades of Grey!)

Kids Party Paper Decorations

My most recent bunting project is probably my easiest and quickest to date…Treat Bag Bunting!

You will need:

A selection of treat bags/party bags/sweet bags (12 bags make 3mtrs)
Ribbon or bias binding 1-1.5cm wide 3m long
A Sewing Machine

Simply sew the bags to the ribbon/binding, I sewed the bottoms of the bag so that they hung upside-down. Leave a gap of a bags width between your flags. Hang and enjoy!

Fringe Tassel Tail Balloons

Tassel Tail Balloons are still a hot party decoration for 2014. You may remember last year I posted a D.I.Y how to make tassel tails for big balloons. Well I thought I would share with you a little balloon-tail cheat.

Tassel tails, (although they look amazing) are quite time consuming to construct, a very quick cheat to get a similar effect is to add fringe garland tails to your balloons.

Balloon Tassel Tail

Trust me kids love these, so for a cheap but ‘jaw-dropping-wow’ feature to a child’s party add fringe tassel tails to your balloons, these are also beautiful for weddings and can be achieved in practically no time and at very little cost. They also make a beautiful little gift for a birthday, baby shower etc.

Balloon Fringe Tassel Garland

Fringe Festooning comes in 5m lengths (more than enough for 5 balloons if you use just one strand), combine a couple of colours and strands for best effect. Simply attach the garlands to the tied base of the balloon with a little piece of glitter tape. These garlands are stronger than you might think but if you are using with Big Balloons take the measure of add a piece of strong ribbon along with the garlands as the piece to be held/tethered to avoid losing your beautiful balloon!
