Christmas Wrapping Paper Bunting

Craft/Home Decorating:


This project was really quick and easy, and it looks fantastic for a Christmas decoration! Of course, you could also make a Christmas bunting out of material(see my No-Sew Bunting), but this wrapping-paper bunting is cheaper to make, and Christmas wrapping paper is easy to find... it’s everywhere! (including at the supermarket)

What you’ll need for this project:
- Christmas wrapping paper
- Cotton string (jute doesn’t sit as well for this project)
- Stapler (and staples!)
- Scissors
- Cardboard
- Pen

First I drew up a template for the flags (see below for an example), cut out the exact shape in cardboard and used it to trace the flags on to the paper. Then I simply cut out the paper flags, folded them, and stapled each one to my cotton string. And then it was done!

 And the Christmas Wrapping Paper Bunting was so easy that my four year old daughter made one for herself too!
