Here’s a great craft project that you can do in minutes by yourself or as a craft project with the kids this spring or summer: How to make quick & easy bunting!

no sew bunting

The family and I are going to Camp Bestival again this summer and bunting is one of those things that festival goers often take with them to dress up their tent or campervan. If you are not going to a festival then bunting makes a cute decoration for the home too and if you are looking for tips on how to create a family festival in the garden then check out my post about having a festival at home

I worked with SupersavvymeUK on a project where they filmed me making bunting, have a look at my video tutorial below which is on the SupersavvymeUK You Tube channel for instructions on how to do it!

There are just a few tools you’ll need:

  • Craft card in your chosen colours
  • Scissors
  • A ruler & pencil
  • Ribbon or twine
  • Sticky tape and Washi tape for decoration
  • buckets of washi tape


  • First, make a template for your bunting flags. You can download the image below as a guide
  • Bunting Template

  • Then, cut out the template and use this to draw around to form your bunting flags. Decide which colours you are going to choose for your bunting and cut out an equal amount of flags in those colours
  • Take your ribbon or twine and cut a strip to the desired length
  • Then place the ribbon on top of your bunting flag and fold over the flap at the top and stick in place with tape. See the video above for how I do this
  • Once all the flags are attached, you can further personalise your bunting by applying washi tape or sticking on gems to the flags to create a fun pattern
  • Hang your bunting with pride! It is an easy project that looks really effective and is perfect for a festival or for a child’s birthday party!
  • Bunting makes any occasion into something a bit special… I hope you enjoy having a go at this easy craft project! Let me know how you get on in the comments!
