As you may know, I absolutely LOVE decorating for the seasons/holidays. It's such a fun way to get involved with the festivities and brighten up your home. Of course, you can easily just purchase some decor from a shop. However, this usually is pretty expensive. So, I like to try and create my own decor for a fraction of the price. Today I wanted to share how I made this ridiculously easy and super cheap easter inspired bunting. I actually already owned all of the necessary materials, but if you don't already own them, you can purchase them for a very reasonable price in a range of stores.
Equipment/ Materials Needed:
- Coloured Card (I chose four pastel colours for mine.)
- A Hole Punch
- Scissors (Craft scissors work best but normal will work fine too.)
First of all, you need to take your craft scissors and cut out equal triangular shapes. In order to create equal shapes, I recommend measuring a rough outline before cutting. The craft scissors will create this wavy edge. However, my scissors broke meaning I had to use normal scissors and manually create this wavy edge. I think this worked just as well.
Next, you need to take your hole punch and punch two holes into the top of each triangle. Try to make the holes in roughly the same place each time.
Finally, thread your string through your card and voila! You're done! This is literally one of the easiest crafts ever and it looks amazing. If you wanted to make this specifically for easter you could add some more details such as painting on little eggs or chicks. However, I wanted to be able to hang mine throughout spring and summer, so I left them as they were.
I was so so happy with how this worked out. The colours really brighten up my home just generally make the house look more springy. On top of looking super cute and being really easy, it really didn't take that long. The only part that was moderately time-consuming was cutting out the shapes. However, if you place more than one piece of the card together and cut multiple at once, this takes next to no time at all.
This is definitely one of those simple decor pieces that just make such a difference to your home. I definitely recommend giving this a go!
