Contains Affiliate Links

You can’t have a party without bunting! It’s an easy way to brighten up any party venue and it really adds to the party atmosphere.

I’m going to show you how to make perfect party bunting in just 3 steps. Plus, at just £0.23 per pendant, it’s brilliantly cost-effective too!

You Will Need

  • A4 Card
  • Treasury Tags
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Ruler

I have chosen some black and white spotty card which is available from Amazon and costs £2.99 for 5x A4 sheets. This will make 15 bunting pendants (approximately 3 metres).

I also bought these yellow treasury tags at £2.95 for 100 (although you’ll only need 17!) Alternatively, you can cut lengths of string or wool and fasten them to the card with a knot.

Step 1: Measure The Card

Using a ruler, measure the length of your card and mark the halfway point on both sides. Then on one of the sides, add 2 more marks so that it is split into quarters.

Join up the dots as shown in the picture below. This will give you 3 pendants for your bunting.

Step 2: Cut Out The Pendants

Cut along the lines you have drawn and discard the excess card. This will leave you with 3 pendants.

You need to put a hole in the two top corners of each pendant. I used a hole punch for this but you can just as easily use a pair of scissors or a pencil to push through the card.

Step 3: Hang Your Bunting

Attach two pieces of bunting together by simply threading a treasury tag through one hole and into the other.

Repeat the whole process until you’ve strung all of your pendants together.

Your bunting is finished and ready to bring your party venue to life!
