Cheap and cheerful bunting...



Plastic pirate floor mat bunting (waterproof for the garden) this requires no sticking along the triangles as it does not frey at all.



Recycled tin can bunting (a fun way to display fresh herbs or flowers) I made this one for a hens night last weekend. I am looking to recycle it again for my sons 2nd birthday party next weekend - with fabric and stickers with the number 2 on them.



Plastic table runner lace bunting (i made this one for my sister in law's baby shower a couple of months back) very easy and no sewing required as i used glue tape and hand stitched the ribbon to the top sections of the squares.




Happy Birthday bunting from last years 1st birthday party (my very first attempt) I used iron on lettering from Spotlight and didn't even get time to sew the edges...lucky for me they didn't frey! (yet) I will get around to doing this some time soon.



My Son's nursery...I really wanted vintage inspired bunting and could not find anything that I loved anywhere. I wanted it to be just right! So I found the fabric and had a friend make it for me...that is when I first fell for bunting. And bought my own sewing machine!

Love the tin cans...have you punched holes in them to string them together???

Hi Denise,
We used a drill to make holes in the side of the cans and used twine to string them...thank you for your lovely comments x
