Be a gift-giving pro when you have beautifully wrapped gifts for your friends and family. Below is the fabric bunting gift wrap tutorial.
Hi there, I’m Jennie, and I blog over at Jennie Moraitis. I'm an author and illustrator living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I'm also mom to a sweet little girl who is my greatest muse and wife to an amazing husband who helps me with the tech side of this business.
I keep seeing projects which involve buntings which makes me so happy. I personally made a bunting for my own wedding as a backdrop and just love how it added dimension to the 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!

Fabric Bunting Tutorial:
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.
- 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!

What a cute idea! I just wrapped a present in brown paper a couple hours ago, I wish I had seen this post first. I used fall leaves to embellish it some. But if I had seen this I would of tried it. Very pretty!
so cute! I made fabric scrap bunting for a birthday party but never thought to use it to wrap a gift.
