Gettin’ CraftyPosted: July 14, 2011
As I have been going along planning our wedding I have been try to focus on décor that can be reused/recycled and be inexpensive. One option that I have been playing around with in my head is bunting.
It can be made with paper or cloth and sewer or strung. I like that there are so many options and ideas to play with for such a basic idea.
I loved all of the patterns available in the scrapbook section so I picked a few that would go with the red/orange vibe of the wedding.
I was going to string the flags so I opted for a leaf hole punch instead of a typical circle to give it a little more subtle pizzazz!
One of the best things about doing this bunting myself was saving some major $$$. The cheapest sub I could find pre-made was $120 and this is how mine broke down:
- 200ft Juite twine – $6.99 (smallest spool they had)
- 10 sheets scrapbooking paper – $5
- Leaf punch – $3.99
- Cardstock 50 sheets – $19.99 (this also will be used for cardstock in other aspects of the wedding)
- Total ~ $36
Now the question is do I put barn stamps on the ivory flags?!??!!
