DIY Bunting

On Sunday I moved into my new house in Leeds – yep, summer is coming to an end and the uni term commences yet again. I am trying to be very wise with my money (for a change) and attempting to save what I have for London Fashion Week so I haven’t been able to purchase any new decor for my room. Last night, I decided to get creative and make my own bunting by using a gift bag I received on my birthday. It was just too pretty to throw away! Firstly, I untied the handles of the bag and then unfolded the bag at the seams, removing the card base. Then I drew 4 triangles (all the same size) and cut them out. Next, I hole-punched the top corners of each triangle and weaved the lace (handles) through. I tied the lace in the middle and then pinned my bunting to the wall above my desk. It took me about 15 minutes altogether and is a cute new addition to my room. Try it for yourself ! You can also use patterned material and ribbon which you can pick up for a reasonably cheap price from a haberdashery store. Hope you like it!

Post to you soon xoxo
