How to make paper bunting
I have been thinking about making bunting for a little while but haven’t ever got around to it. After thinking about the types of papers I have in my collection I decided to settle on making a miniature bunting, so to avoid wastage if it all went horribly wrong. Good news – it went totally right! This was my first attempt at bunting of any kind and I am really pleased with how it turned out.

I used two contrasting papers from my Dovecraft 6″ Christmas paper selection, and a lovely ivory and gold baker’s twine type string, both from Hobbycraft.

In total I used 4 squares of paper, which gave me 18 triangles and made just over 2 metres of bunting. Each individual triangle measures approx. 1.5″ high and wide. I love this mini bunting as it is the perfect size for wrapping around one of my trees, and that’s exactly how I am going to use it.

Are you ready to make your own?

You will need:

  • Contrasting papers – I’ve used squares but any size will work at least 6″ high
  • Scissors
  • Ruler or tape measure
  • String or ribbon
  • Hot glue, glue dots or PVA glue

┬áHere’s what you need to do:

Note: Every other cut will yield 1 double triangle, along with 2 separate single triangles (keep these).
One 6″ square piece of paper will give 9 complete double sided triangles.

Keep all the leftover single triangles and the off cuts from the ends as you can use them for other projects.

 
I used mine to create some really simple Christmas trees. They could be used to decorate greetings cards, gift tags, or you could glue them together and run a piece of string along the top to make another garland.

 
What do you think? Have you made your own paper garland or are you going to? I’d love to hear from you.
