Homemade Garden Ideas : Bunting..


I love to see colourful bunting. It looks beautiful blowing in the wind on hot summer days. As well as looking great outside in your garden, it looks adorable in the kitchen. 

Draped all over a Welsh dresser!? 

Not that I have a Welsh dresser yet but I'm working on the idea of getting an old one and painting it white with chalk paint and giving it shabby chic look.. 


The good thing about bunting is that you can create your own style, shapes and pick of fabrics to make your own unique style. Added bonus is they are not to difficult to make.


Such a lovely idea for when you are having guest around. Summer party's, weddings and BBQ's. 


You can make temporary ones from card or ones to last longer from material or even cut up old clothes. Using up old pieces of scrap material from sewing projects is just perfect. 

Experiment with different shapes or even scraps of material look nice. 

Sewing them to garden twin, tying them to it or even just making holes to thread some string through.


Of course my favourite idea is to find something worn, old or ripped and... 

Recycle them.


Recycle, Recycle Recycled!!

I am in the middle of making some recycled bunting for the garden. I made this dress a few years ago but it is the wrong kind of material for summer. It is far too heavy to wear in the heat. So I think I can make perfect bunting out of this.

  1. I've never tried to make bunting before, I'm a bit rubbish when it comes to crafts like that! Love the dress! You're an upcycling star!
