How to: Adorable Bunting from Wallpaper Scraps

Here’s a very simple how to craft that pretty much anyone can do.  Whether it’s for a party or for fun, this craft is a fun way to recycle scraps of decorative paper and doesn’t have to cost much -it can actually be free if you happen to have the following items just laying around the home:

  • Paper scraps
  • Thick cardboard
  • Ribbons or string
  • Sewing thread and needle OR double-sided tape
  • Scissors

Start off by drawing and cutting out an acute triangle with the cardboard to make the main template.

*Print or Save this shape for your crafts: bunting


Next, sort through paper scraps and group colours and patterns that work nicely together.

Use the template to draw the bunting shape on the back of the paper and cut them out.

I managed to find some pretty lace for the top of the bunting, so I arranged and spaced the pieces until I was happy, then sewed the pieces onto the lace.


In the end, this is how it turned out:

Sadly, I was too busy at the party to even get a few photos to show you how they looked around the room 🙁

Perhaps I’ll have to make another event to get some good photos 😉
