My name is Tracy, but you can call me Martha: Bunting and Banners, Oh My!

If you've planned a wedding within the last year or so then you are well aware of the bunting trend. Fabric banner bunting is everywhere.... including in all my wedding photos! I jumped on the bandwagon (I've been doing that a lot lately) and made fabric bunting for the backdrop of the photo booth at our wedding last Fall.

Now I have a ton of these twine banners with no idea what to do with them. When I made my Coupon Art the other night I moved a framed photo I had grown tired of but I still love the frame so I wanted to find some use for it. Thus I decided to combine the flag banner and pretty frame to make this!

My guest room has pretty bland, tan walls and could use a little decoration.

I already had the fabric flags and twine, but if you don't and want to make this project it's very simple. All I did was create a triangle/flag template out of a thick piece of card stock and trace it on assorted fabric. I cut them out and used a tiny hole punch to make 4 holes in the top of each flag. Then I ran twine through the holds and ta-da!

To finish the project you'll need a frame and this following long list of expensive items and tools:

Iron (only if your fabric flags had been bunched up in a Ziploc bag for 7 months)
Electrical Tape

I'll wait while you gather all those items. :) (I'm extra special sarcastic today.)

You can see from the photo how easy it was to put together. It literally took 10 minutes. One tip- fold the little metal tabs all the way back so they don't scratch up your wall. I used the electrical tape to roll them down flat. Then zig-zag the twine back and forth, making sure all the fabric flags are facing the right way and hang.

If I was starting this project from scratch I'd probably take the time to sew the flags up nicely so they had finished edges but this works just fine too.

If you make a Bunting Frame please send me a photo or link to your blog below!
