Neon Star Bunting DIY

Abbi is going through something of a flourescent phase.  She wanted some neon star bunting for her party.  I’m recognising that by this stage I am starting to look a bit of a bunting nut.  I promise this will be my last post on bunting for a while. (or I am likely to be tied in bunting and locked up for my own good).  But I cannot resist the request for some party decorations.Neon Star Bunting DIY

Materials

  • Fluorescent or neon paper (Paperchase has a great selection).
  • Black Thread
  • Star Paper cutter
  • Double sided tape
  • Sewing Machine

Method

This garland needs to be double sided if its to have full impact.  For most colours this isn’t a problem  however for true fluorescent its almost impossible to find paper with the fluoro colour both sides.Neon Star Bunting DIYEither chose a different colour!  Or use double sided tape to stick two sheets together.Neon Star Bunting DIY
