Want to make an adorable cake bunting for next to nothing?
This DIY wedding cake bunting is extra awesome because you don’t need a sewing machine to make it. You can make the cake bunting to match the colors of your wedding. It would also be perfect for a bridal shower.
Here’s what you will need for the double strand cake bunting:
For this bunting we used three different types of fabric to make a total of 22 flags; 7 plain, 7 stripes, and 8 floral. The top strand has 10 flags and bottom strand has 12 flags.
Cut two strips 4″ x 10″ for plain and striped fabric; cut one strip 4″ x 11″ for pattern.
Fold each in half lengthwise and iron.
Cut two strips of Wonder Under
Open folded fabric strips and place Wonder Under glue side down about 5/8″ from the top to allow for casing. Iron with a dry iron.
Remove paper. Fold top over and iron again.
Create a template by cutting out a 1″ x 1 1/2″ triangle from cardboard. Place flag template along fold. Trace flags with pencil.
Cut approximately 75″ of string for each bunting; this will leave 30″ on each end for tying.
Use a darning needle or small safety pin to thread flags onto your string.
