Homemade Bunting!

Such a pretty gift, or home decoration for yourself! It is also surprisingly easy. Use any material you can find, try chopping up old clothes and scarfs, or buying it from a market. We would love to see your bunting creations, so feel free to drop us an email, or tweet us @trendswb .

What you need: material, pinking sheers, ribbon, pins, paper, scissors, sewing machine (or you can hand sew if you don't have one!)

Step 1: Draw a triangle template on paper and cut out.
Step 2: Pin your template on your material, and cut around it with your pinking sheers. Do this as many times as you need. Leave about 1cm at the top of your triangle, so you can fold it over the ribbon. You must use pinking sheers because otherwise your material will fray. 
Step 3: Fold the top side of your triangle over the ribbon and pin in place.
Step 4: Sew onto the ribbon. 
Step 5: Leave enough ribbon at the ends of your bunting so you can hang it on the wall.
