How to make bunting  

Bunting is the perfect way to liven up your alfresco dining area or add the perfect accessory to add a fun touch to your child's room. Use our step-by-step bunting template guide to make your own design for your home. 

Display bunting trailed around a wrought iron bed for some chic country style. Or pin bunting in front of a row of practical shelving in a home office for quirky style. 

 

You will need:

* Fabric and thread

* 13mm-wide bais binding tape

* Pinking shears

Try Hobbycraft for your supplies.

Step 1: Draw a triangle on some cardboard and cut it out to use as a bunting template.

Step 2: Pin the template to your fabric and cut around it using pinking shears to avoid fraying. Repeat until you have enough flags for your desired bunting lenght. 

Step 3: Evenly space the flags along the bias binding tape, folding the shortest edge over, and pin in place securely ready to sew in place.

Step 4: Sew on the flags with a straight stitch, leaving at least 40cm of tape free from flags at each end for hanging your bunting proudly on display.
