{simple fabric bunting}

 I love making buntings for every holiday, because I think they’re one of the easiest and least expensive ways to dress up a mantel, bench, table, doorway, or window. I love to use burlap (you can see my burlap fall bunting HERE), but I also love to incorporate different colors using fabric.  This simple fabric bunting takes less than 15 minutes to make (seriously!!!), and adds a ton of charm to my front entry bench!

-fabric of choice

-ribbon (needs to be a grosgrain, or other thick ribbon)

bunting template (or Silhouette)

-hot glue gun



1. Cut fabric into pennant triangles.  I used my Silhouette to cut one out, in a 7 inch height, and then used that one as a template. You can use your Silhouette to cut out all of them, but I think it’s faster to cut them myself once I have a template, when I have several fabrics.  I folded my fabric over so I could cut out two at a time.  I had four fabrics, and cut two of each, for a total of 8 triangles. I had 1/4 yard of each fabric, and I made two buntings with about 1/3 of the amount of each fabric leftover. If you don’t have a Silhouette, you can download THIS BUNTING TEMPLATE.  Print it onto cardstock, then place it on your fabric and cut around it.  Secure it with straight pins if you need to.

2. Cut your ribbon the length you want it to be, then lay it out on a long table, or other flat and smooth surface. Decide on your pattern, and lay out the triangles just above the ribbon.  Heat your hot glue gun. Put a strip of hot glue right along the very top of the fabric pennant.  Immediately place your ribbon on top of the hot glue, matching the top of the ribbon to the top of the pennant.  Press down to secure.

3. Repeat for each triangle, leaving however much of a space in between them that you like.
