The Paper Bunting Tutorial


Poppa built Ceesa, Jo-Jo, and Little Man a playhouse last summer. The outside is finished, but the inside could use some decorating. When I saw this paper bunting at sunnydaytodaymomma, I knew it was perfect for our playhouse.
We used the book We’re Going on a Bear Hunt. It was well-loved and had lost its binding long ago.

First, I folded a page we weren’t going to use at the middle. I used this middle line as a center point for the triangles point.
Then from the sides I folded the edges.
I folded about 1 inch down and cut the tips that were hanging down.  I unfolded it and used this page as a template.
After I cut out each triangle,
 I hot glued the ends and
middle of the 1 inch fold down over a string.
We found the perfect place and hung it in the playhouse.


Wishing you homeschool blessings,
Bethany

Your bunting looks fabulous! I had planned to make triangle shaped bunting but Sunnyboy insisted on rectangles, so it's nice to see how triangles would have looked. You've inspired me to make more bunting now. :)
