This summer has been so busy! I have been soaking up all the time I can with my big boy before he goes back to school and starts 1st grade! (How did this happen?) I am finally getting around to decorating my front table for summer.
I thought it would be fun to use some of my latest favorite crafting supplies: washi tape and baker’s twine. Seriously, if you haven’t picked some of these up for your crafting supply, you totally should. There are so many uses!
- washi tape in various colors
- baker’s twine
- scissors (smaller ones work better)
Step One: Decide which washi tapes you want to use and determine your pattern. I chose six summery colored washi tapes. I laid them out in a pattern that looked pleasing to me.
Step Two: Cut a piece of washi tape. I just eye-balled them, but they ended up being about 1″ – 1 1/2″ long once folded. So, that means you need to cut a strip that is 2″ – 3″ long.
Step Three: Fold the washi tape around your baker’s twine. I left the twine attached to the roll until I was finished adding all my tape pennants. I wasn’t exactly sure how long I wanted it to be. (Be sure you line up the edges of your tape when you fold it over so it doesn’t look messy!)
Step Four: Trim the edge straight across. Cut an upside-down notched ‘v’ at the bottom of the tape. This will create your pennant shape.
Step Five: Repeat steps one through four until your bunting is long enough. I repeated all the colors twice, so there are 12 pennants on my bunting.
Step Six: Hang your bunting! I added mine to my mirror I have on my entry way table. I just taped it up with regular clear tape on each end. You could also add a smaller bunting to a handmade card or gift.
