Birthday Bunting DIY.

A couple of months ago, I did a little birthday themed DIY over at Royal Milk Tea! It’s a simple and cute DIY to make paper bunting – using paper scraps, pegs and string. In the spirit of my blogging birthday, I wanted to share it with you on Messy La. (You can still view the RMT post here.). So if you are a new follower and haven’t seen the tutorial or simply would love to see it we go! Enjoy.

Collect some scraps of paper. I don’t know about you, but I build up a scrap drawer that I am always aiming to use up when I get a chance. (and by drawer I mean about 3 racks full of odd bits and pieces that I ‘intend’ to use one day). However, this is the perfect opportunity! So, take your scraps, making sure they are big enough to fufill a 10 x 10cm square (10cm is roughly 4 inches). The squares can be bigger or smaller..just as long as they are a perfect square. I like to try and make my colour scheme compliment each other, if possible!

Measure 5cm (half) of the square and put a little pencil mark.

Cut from the corner to the pencil mark on both sides. I like to use my paper trimmer to ensure that it is a perfect triangle.

Attach triangles to your string using your pegs.

Display, sing happy birthday and enjoy! It’s as easy as that and is super fun to do. Adding a handmade touch to a birthday is my favourite thing to do, it lets that birthday girl/boy know that you truly love them!
Easy as pie! But super cute and such a cute decoration. I can imagine making meters and meters of this would be so lovely!
