Bunting for the Chalkboard
Remember how I said I wanted to make some bunting for my chalkboard in the kitchen? Well, last Thursday after work I made some. My first ever set of bunting, and now I think I’m addicted to bunting. Except more to made for holidays, birthday… etc.
- Jute or Bakers Twine: $2.99 (I used Jute)
- Scrapbook Paper (I used 2 sheets) $0.59 each
- Scissors & Tape
- Some regular paper (for use as a template
Total: $4.17 (I ♥ projects under five bucks)
The first thing I did to make my bunting, is I cut a template out of regular paper. Just a simple triangle.
Then I grabbed my scrapbook paper sheets. I choose two patterns with the same color scheme.
I took my template and traced it onto the back of the scrapbook paper (so you don’t see the marks). I also added a little rectangle onto of my triangle. You’ll see why soon.
Then I grabbed my jute and cut it to my desired length.
Here are all of my triangles cut out and ready to be made into some bunting. :)
You want to lay your jute out, and then fold the rectangle part of the triangle over and tape it down. Just keep doing this for as many triangles you need, and space them evenly apart.
Once you’re done, just hang & enjoy. :)
