Making bunting

I've anyway known how to make bunting. It's really simple and so appealing.  I mean who doesn't love bunting? It's such a simple thing that can brighten up any home or garden. I'm planning a bunting project as soon as I can get some time on my sewing machine. 

In the meantime I've been making temporary paper decorations, including bunting,  to celebrate Easter.

So here's a quick share of the Easter bunting me and froggy made this week,  using paper doilies strung together with coloured raffia.

They are so dainty and look so pretty with the lace of the doily that they don't really require much embellishment.

I wrote out the letters for Happy Easter and we sat down as a family to 'decorate' them. This would be more successful with older children as my seven month old seemed to prefer eating the doilies to colouring!


I love that he loves getting involved in the activities now, especially ones like this which are so open in their upper age limit. 

The result was simple but effective.  I will be saving the left over doilies to make more bunting for special occasions. After all 
you can never have to much bunting.

What do you think?  Would you be tempted to make some for your child's birthday- perhaps as a party activity?
