{diy bunting}

{1. etsy, 2. kiki la ru, 3. ruffled}

After being inspired by the bunting I was seeing all over weddings, parties & etsy shops, I decided to make some for our 25th Birthday dinner party. I ended up becoming obsessed with it and making it for every holiday party of the season.

I purchased all the fabric at the best kept secret in the fabric district, the "loft" at Micheal Levine,- all of the fabric here is $2.50 per pound! I bought the grosgrain ribbon on a 50 yard spool at Target Trim down the street for...wait for it....$7!

Basically if you can cut a triangle and sew a straight line then you are all set to make some for yourself...

After creating a triangle template and cutting out enough triangles to cover my entire living room, I simply sandwiched the triangles between two strips of the grosgrain ribbon. Then sewed straight down the middle of the ribbon- securing the triangles between it.

  4. Hi Natalie..

    Do you mind proving a template for the triangle that you used? Believe it or not I can seem to cut a right triangle size?

    This is absoultely gorgoeus and would love to make it for my daughter's first birthday next month.

    Thanks in advance!
