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.
- Fluorescent or neon paper (Paperchase has a great selection).
- Black Thread
- Star Paper cutter
- Double sided tape
- Sewing Machine
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.Either chose a different colour! Or use double sided tape to stick two sheets together.
Paper ready, use a star punch to cut out loads of stars. Once the stars are ready, its a simple job of feeding them through the sewing machine. Its like a sausage machine for neon star bunting, and is hugely satisfying. If you don’t have a sewing machine, you can still make the star bunting. Skip the stage where the sheets of paper are stuck together, and cut out the stars as before.Use double sided tape to sandwich them together with either black twine or thread in between. These look especially good with a number all strung together. I used them like this as the backdrop for our unmanned Photo Booth Then finally they were recycled into gift wrap.
