In preparation for our Easter festivities this Sunday, I whipped up this easy, no-sew, fabric bunting to stretch over our outdoor dining area. Everything’s better with bunting, right? All you need is rope (I chose a rustic-looking jute variety straight off the shelf from Home Depot), and one inch wide scraps of colorful fabric (I used quilting fabric). Oh, and to get a little sparkle, I also added chandelier crystals every so often.
Choosing colors at random, I tied the swatches of fabric every six inches or so (the fabric scraps were approximately eight inches long each), but I certainly did not try to make them perfectly spaced–symmetry is overrated. I just tied a single knot. Good enough. That rope is grippy.
Then, every few feet (again, never measuring perfectly), I attached a crystal with fine wire.
I wish I had video of these little pretties fluttering in the breeze….they look like little birds, and the chandelier crystals bounce some lovely sparkle around the yard.
I’m thinking that after the party on Sunday….the bunting stays. Me likey.
