Rewritable bunting for every occasion!

I've been obsessed with chalkboard paint recently and when I was trying to come up with a fun decoration for our bookcase, the idea of chalkboard bunting came to mind! It's awesome because I can change the message from Happy Birthday to Merry Christmas, depending on the season or our mood.

Instructions

  1. How to make bunting. Chalkboard Bunting - Step 1 1

    Start by cutting triangles out of thin wood. We used some scrap shipping wood that came as packaging with a piece of furniture. You can buy wood triangles in craft shops, if you struggle to find a piece that works well. You'll need about 12 triangles to be able to write a nice long message.

    Paint your triangles with a coat of chalkboard paint and leave to dry.

    Paint with a second coat of paint and leave to dry again.

  4. How to make bunting. Chalkboard Bunting - Step 4 4

    Punch a hole at either side of the top of the triangle. My wood was thin enough to use a hole punch.

    Loop some string through the hole.

    Secure at the back with a knot and then string through the second hole, securing with another knot.

    Leave a small length of string between each triangle and continue threading them all on to the string.
