Looking for an awesome wedding bunting tutorial? Well, crafty ladies, you have come to the right place!

This wedding bunting is made from vintage sheets found at resale shops.

You can hang this from your dessert table, above your reception table or line your ceremony aisle. How you use your wedding bunting is only limited to you imagination!

This wedding bunting measures nine feet end to end. It has twelve 5 “x 7″ flags. There is one foot of bias tape on each end to use for tying the bunting.

Here is what you will need for your wedding bunting:

Make a 5″ x 7″ triangle with card stock like the one shown below. Place your template about an inch from the edge of your fabric. Trace template with fabric chalk.

Use pinking shears to cut out the flag. Cut on the outside of the chalk line. Place pattern next to cut-out and repeat. Do the same on your other fabrics until you have 12 flags.

Iron flags. Use spray starch to stiffen the fabric.

Line flags up on a table in desire sequence.

Tuck flags into bias tape, making sure that shorter edge of the bias tape is on top. Leave two inches between flags.

Pin flags to bias tape.

Fire up your sewing machine and sew flags to bias tape. We used a zigzag stitch to match with the edges of the flags.

    Thanks for the great tutorial. I'm making some bunting for a friend's wedding and needed a bit of help. Good idea about the pinking sheers. I wasn't sure if I wanted that look but you can't really tell from further away.

    Just love the easy instructions. My 8 yr old is learning to sew and this a project we want to do together. Never even thought of old sheets for this project.

    thanks :-)

    I just have to say: Thank You. I love how easy, you've explained (DIY) banner. I'm prepping my baby girl first birthday and I needed some clear and EASY instructions to do my first banner. Thank you once again. Have a fantastic day.
