DIY | Christmas themed bunting

Hey loves,

I was feeling Christmassy and creative the other day and wanted to make some Christmas bunting for mine and Jack's room, so I went to The Range on the hunt for some Christmas paper. I came across an amazing pack of square card, all Christmas themed, and it was on offer so I couldn't go wrong really! I made the bunting today as I had a day off work and thought I would do a little step-by-step DIY for you incase you want to give it a go yourself.

So, you will need:

Step 1: First of all you need to mark the center point of one side of your paper. My paper measures 24cm x 24cm so my center point is at 12cm. Mark this point with your pencil, a small line or dot will do :)

Step 2: Next up you need to grab your ruler and draw a line from the mark you just made to each opposing corner of the paper. Once you have drawn your lines to each corner, cut along the lines and you will be left with a triangle shape.

Step 3: After cutting away your excess paper you will need to mark your two top corners of your triangle with a little dot, enough so that you can make a hole in each corner. Once you have done that, take your hole punch and make a hole in both corners where you marked your paper. Do steps 1 to 3 with however many triangles you wish to produce for your bunting. I made 20 triangles for my bunting but you can use more or less depending on the length of your room or space you wish to fill.

Step 4: Now is the exciting part! Line up your triangles and place them in which order you would like them to hang. Once you are happy you can start threading your triangles onto the ribbon, weaving in and out of the holes you created in step 3.

Step 5: You are done! All you need to do now is hang it up and admire your handy work ;)

I hope you liked this little DIY post, I have a few more up my sleeve if you're interested? Let me know if you enjoyed this or if you made any yourself, I would love to know! :)

Speak to you soon,
