YEESH! Time flies when you’re crafting and havin’ fun. As we mentioned a few weeks ago, we are in the process of planning a hot-air balloon themed baby shower. As promised, we will be documenting our DIY process for your viewing pleasure. Up first is an adorable bunting. This little cutie will do double duty, first decorating the shower, and later it will be hung in the nursery. We are so thrilled with the finished product, we can hardly wait to see it in action in July.
Before we get to the nitty gritty deets, here’s a look at our inspiration in case you forgot (we actually like ours better!):
And here is our finished product (how cute!):
What You’ll Need:
Fabric or paper in colors and fabrics of your choice, twine, scissors, a stencil (we cut out a triangular shape from a piece of cardboard) and fabric or craft glue, Chalk.
How it’s Done:
Step One: Trace lightly with chalk around the triangular stencil on the fabric or paper (sorry, we don’t have a pic of this, hopefully it’s self-explanatory).
Step Two: Cut out triangles, you will probably need 6 of each color to do two buntings
Step Four: Lay out the twine and place triangles where you want them to eventually hang. We did one pattern for one, and then mixed it up with another pattern for the second.
Final Steps: let dry and hang to your hearts delight!
