Simple Bunting Made out of Paint Sample-Colour Cards

Craft:



This little project was really quick and easy and looks so good! I still love the look of bunting and have made quite a few before! See my Christmas Wrapping Paper Bunting and my No-Sew Bunting for a Party or Child's Room. Caity's Bunting Cards are lovely too.

For this project, however, I firstly collected about 10 paint sample cards from Bunnings. I used different whites for this project, as I wanted something plain, but you could use any colours and any combination.


The only other things you'll need are: some cardboard for tracing, scissors, a pencil, some good sticky tape and some jute string (or whatever material you want to use).

Then I made a template for the flag - I always find it easier to do this and it makes it quicker for tracing. I just drew a flag by hand roughly the size I wanted on an old bit of cardboard and then cut it out.

Make sure you trace your flag onto the back of your paint sample colour sample card. That way there won't be any pencil marks on the front!

Then line up your cards and string, and sticky tape them all together.



And then your paint sample-colour card bunting is finished!


I find that an easy and temporary way to tie your bunting up is by using good old pegs and blu-tac.  


And there are so many places that you can put your bunting! Outside (undercover of course!)... in your kitchen above your sink... over your bed... mine is currently above my nice old kitchen hutch.


Happy Making!
