June 4th – Your Own Bunting (Suggested Activity)
Brighten up your neighbourhood one craft project at a time! Making your own bunting is the perfect way to burn off some creative steam. You can hang your bunting up inside or outside, preferably somewhere where others can see it. Encourage your neighbours to join in and make their own! Bunting is a handy decoration to have lots of when it comes to decorating for community events.
Get lost in your nearest cupboard
The fun of making your own bunting is that you can really use anything at all to do it! Start rifling through the cupboards and see if you can find any…
- Old tents
- 70s tablecloths
- Kids cartoon bed sheet
- Dad’s hawaiian shirts
- Dodgy curtains
Find some garden twine or extra-long string. Cut the fabric into long, thin diamond shapes. Fold in half between the shortest points. Wrap around the string and glue sides together. Et voila! Your own homemade bunting to hang up outside your house, and at community events as you please!
