Difficulty Level; Slightly Challenging

I love bunting and I love the rustic look. So I loved making this. I’ve mixed a rustic style with scandanavian and have made lots of decorations this year in this style. Follow the link to view the other decorations in this style Rustic/Scandanavian Christmas Decorations. This bunting requires no sewing , just a glue gun (phew I hear you say).

For 9 Flags of bunting you will need;

  1. 3 1/2 yards of 1/4″  rope ( I got a big reel from hobbycraft)
  2. 1/2 yard of medium weight hessian/burlap
  3. I used 4 different cotton scandanavian fabrics, I just used scraps left over from other projects
  4. Buttons for decoration (or you could use ribbon or twine)
  5. Glue gun ( i’ve pictured fabric glue in the image below but didn’t use it and used the glue gun instead, but any strong multi purpose or fabric glue will do)
  6. Scissors
  7. Thread unpicker to fray the fabric

How to make the bunting;

  1. Cut the hessian/burlap fabric into 11 triangles, each measuring 5″ wide and 7″ long.
  2. Cut the scandanavian fabric into smaller 11 triangles, each measuring 3″ wide and 5″ long.
  3. Using the thread unpicked, pull the edges of both fabrics to fray them a little.
  4. Lay each scandanavian cotton fabric on top of the hessian/burlap and secure at the top with a little glue.
  5. Lay the flags out so they are about 3″ apart, then carefully glue the rope in top, leaving about 20″ of rope each side to tie and drape.
  6. Using a little glue, glue each button or peiece of decor to the middle of the flags.
