no-sew patriotic pennant bunting

for the 4th of july i made these easy peasy pennants to hang across my mantle.

i was inspired to make these after i made them for kate’s shower.

i always have strips of fabric leftover from making ruffles, so i was able to take some of my strips (about 2 1/2 inches wide) and cut triangles out of them – so each triangle is about 2 1/2″ tall.

i cut a handful out of a bunch of fabrics that went with the color theme (red, white, and blue… and turquoise).

then i took a long length of baker’s twine (longer than my mantle length).

starting about 1 foot in, i began gluing my triangles (narrowest point down) to the twine.  i just ran a bead of glue along the backside of the top of the triangle and then put the twine in the glue and folded the fabric over the twine.

i left a little space, then repeated. again and again and again.

and i was able to reuse them for labor day also – woohoo!

i love buntings of all size and shape, but these teeny tiny ones are so fun!

    Great project! I wish I had the beautiful fabric to do such awesome projects, but, alas, I do not. You’d be amazed, however, what you can do with paint chip samples. Check it out…

    I have to say, I feel about 100% better right now, knowing that someone with your amazing sewing talent, used good ol hot glue and twine to make your pennant. Because I, someone who can’t sew worth beans, used the same method :) Thanks for makin my night ;)

    P.S I love your style. Your house is simply gorgeous.
