Make beautiful fabric bunting gift wrap when gift giving. An easy DIY craft tutorial idea that shows how to be creative with your gift wrapping.
Hi there, I’m Jennie, and I blog over at Little Girl Designs. I write about crafting, creativity, and giving with joy–I just love coming up with fun and creative gift ideas for my friends and family. One of my goals is to use up the stash of craft supplies I already have lying around rather than buying new supplies every time I make a project. And in this particular case, I helped lower my sister’s increasing fabric scrap stash.
I keep on seeing projects which involve bunting which makes me so happy. I personally made bunting for my own wedding as a backdrop and just love how it adds an added dimension to a space. For this project, I thought it would be really cute to take bunting down to a smaller scale and use it to add a little splash of fun to a brown paper package (which, by the way, is one of my favorite backgrounds for gift-wrapping—there are so many directions you can take kraft paper!)
Since one of my sisters has been on a sewing kick as of late, I decided to ask her if she had any scraps that she’d like to get rid of. She brought me a few squares, thinking it was a paltry offering but it honestly was way more than I needed. It doesn’t take much to make bunting wrap!
How to Make Bunting Gift Wrap
This is a great way to use up old fabric scraps. This is also a kid-friendly project–you can cut the fabric strips, and your kids can tie them onto the yarn.
You Will Need:
- Cut fabric into narrow strips, approximately 8 inches long (You can make them longer or shorter to your personal taste.) Set aside.
- Wrap your gift and tie with yarn or ribbon. The yarn will be the anchor for your bunting.
- Tie each of the fabric scraps onto the yarn until you have a cute row of bunting.
I also glued a few tiny scraps onto the gift package to form a heart.
If you’d rather use this bunting to decorate a space in a room, just tie the fabric scraps to yarn or ribbon and tack the bunting up. I just made some for my daughter’s room, and it really brightens everything up!
