DIY Chalk Painted Christmas Bunting Project
Step into the festive spirit with this fun and easy DIY Christmas bunting project, turning your holiday decor into a charming crafting tradition. Not only is it a joyful activity, but it’s also eco-friendly, adding a touch of feel-good warmth to your festive celebrations. Plus, you can match the bunting to your existing decor using delightful Chalk Paint colours! Go the whole hog and paint wrapping paper and baubles to match for a really bespoke, curated, high-end homemade feel.
Step 2: Cut and Craft
Once dry, cut the painted card into rectangles, approximately 6cm x 3cm in size, using your trusty scissors.
Step 3: Fold and Shape
Fold each rectangle in half along the longer side and snip it to a point, creating unique leaf shapes. Embrace the rustic vibe by folding some with green facing inwards and grey outwards, and vice versa.
Step 5: Stringing Together the Festivity
Thread a hardy embroidery thread through a needle, choosing a colour that complements your vision. String the leaves at random, alternating colours and including the silver-tipped ones. Tie the end of the thread in a loop, making it easy to hang your personalized Christmas bunting year after year!
Enjoy this delightful and crafty project, bringing festive cheer to your home with a personal touch!
