So I got sucked into the time warp that is Hobby Lobby yesterday. I'm getting my workshop room ready to host my first Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint workshop. It's just a plain room with white walls and I felt like it needed a little pop of color. I decided to whip up a cute rag bunting with some fun, colorful fabrics.
I picked out 4 coordinating fabrics and had a half a yard of each one cut.
I made a small cut in the edge of the fabric and then tore the fabric into strips. My strips were approximately 1" wide. Some were a little wider. I was okay with that. My fabric strips were 18" long.
I folded them in half and tied them to some jute twine that I already had on hand. After the fabric was tied on, it hung approximately 8 1/2 to 9" long.
Don't laugh, but I used 2 paint cans to hold my twine on my desk so I could tie the fabric on it. :) That's why you see all of the wires in the background. You could easily tie it between 2 chairs or something similar, but sitting at my desk seemed like as good a place as any.
You can make your rag bunting as long or as short as you would like. I decided to stop mine at 3 feet long. I still have plenty of fabric strips left over to make another small bunting.
