Instructions: How to make bunting

You will need:

  • Printer
  • A4 paper (you need one piece for one triangle)
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Something to string the triangle on to
  • Something to hold the bunting securely in place when up (or leave enough string at either end to securely tie up)

To make the bunting:

  • Print out as many triangles as you need to make the desire length of bunting
  • Cut out each shape
  • Fold the paper back along the dotted line (so the tab is sitting behind the coloured side)
  • Glue or stick the tab down – you don’t want to glue the entire tab because you need a space to thread the ribbon or string through to hang the bunting
  • If you want the triangles to be spaced apart, you can fold the tab over the ribbon/string and glue the triangle in place on the strand

Bunting safety

Be mindful of where and how securely you hang your bunting as it could be a strangulation/choking hazard. It’s not safe to have it anywhere it could be reached by a young child (even by them climbing onto furniture). Make sure it is securely tied or tacked up – you don’t want it falling down and becoming within reach of a child, and ensure there are no dangling ends of string or ribbon for an eager child to grab.

Of course, if you want to avoid lengths of string or ribbon entirely, you can just print out the triangles, cut off the fold-over tab and stick on the wall individually, with pointed edges touching.
