Have you seen that stuff called ‘bunting’ around the place lately? They are little triangles hanging in a line, usually made out of fabric or paper and used as decorations. Well, I’ve also seen some plywood bunting available; it can be pretty pricey in the shops so I want to show you how you can make it yourself at a fraction of the cost.
It’s not really my caper but my Missus loves a bit of bunting so I thought I’d give it a crack. The how-to video above shows you how to do it, step-by-step, and below are some photos of the finished product. We painted ours with watered-down white paint, drew on a number using a stencil and painted each one in. You can also distress the finish with sandpaper or paint each triangle in different colours – the finished product is totally up to you.
Feed the rope through and Bunting’s your uncle!
