Piggy Bank Parties Americana Bunting 1

{free download} americana bunting

Today’s patriotic decorations will have you singin’ America, the Beautiful especially when you hear how little they cost to make.

I created these three 4 foot buntings for under $1.00! The total includes all of the supplies plus the price of the ink.

SUPPLIES:

  • 8 Sheets of 8.5″ w x 11″ h Text Weight Paper
  • Printable American Bunting {free download}
  • Twine, Ribbon or String
  • Adhesive
  • Scissors
  • Optional: Brown Marker or Stamp Pad

DIRECTIONS:

1. Print 4 copies of the American Bunting on the 8 sheets of paper (4 of each page). I chose to print on ivory paper for a rustic Americana look.

2. Cut out the bunting.

Optional: If you’d like a rustic look, color the edges with a brown marker or stamp pad.

You can skip this next step if you’re short on time or prefer a clean and modern look.

Optional: I wanted the bunting to look like a traditional fabric bunting so I decided to add folds to it. A diagram of the folds is included on the free download. First, fold the circle in half along the dotted line. Then fold the semicircle in half, fold the quarter circle in half, fold it in half again…and again! Unfold and ta-da! A traditional 3D bunting effect!

3. Attach the bunting to twine, ribbon or string by folding the semicircle (along the dotted line) over the twine and sealing it shut with your favorite adhesive. You can attach the semicircles close together like I did and leave a bit more space in between each one.

Ta-Da!

The best part? The bunting is double-sided so you can hang it anywhere! Perfect for over your Memorial Day table, against a backdrop, on your favorite candidate’s podium or as décor for your munchkin’s Captain America party. The possibilities are endless!

 

I hope you’re inspired to create a lil’ bunting of your own!

  1. Thanks for the printable! I printed several sizes of these, and strung them on curling ribbon! It was a fun little project, that made a big impact!
    Thanks again!
