I’ve always been a fan of the easy projects. I don’t mind sewing. However, I DO mind sharing my sewing projects. I can only sew a straight line. And that’s a questionable fact if I I’ve had one-too-many Diet Cokes. Yikes! Regardless of my sewing prowess, I love to incorporate fabric into party decor. It’s an easy way to add a little color and pattern to the partay. This no-sew fabric bunting falls in line with all my party-throwing beliefs. Hoo. Rah.
- fabric (this poppy fabric was given to me by For The Makers)
- hot glue gun (not pictured)
- scissors (not pictured)
Cut your fabric into small 2.5 long rectangles. Do this with scissors or a rotary cutter if you have one.
Using your scissors, cut one end of each square into a small v-shape.
Place the twine on the back of the fabric near the top. Place it about 1/4″ down.
Using your hot glue gun, place a thin line of glue on top of the twine.
Fold the fabric over and press firmly with your fingers until the glue dries. Keep repeating until you’ve used as many fabric pieces as your little heart desires!
This fabric was given to me by the lovely folks at For The Makers. They used it for their sweet Field Poppy Pouch. The fabric is so saturated with color and I’ve been craving a salsa party since I saw it. So I threw one for myself whilst watching the finale of The Bachelorette. 😉 For a bunch of fun DIY jewelry & style projects, check out For The Makers. They mail the stuff right to ya. RIGHT to ya.

*note* – While the fabric for this project was given to me by For The Makers, my opinions of them and their product are my own. Tryin’ to keep it real!

Such lovely fabric, I love that you chose to display it through bunting! You you are spot on with your salsa paring 🙂
Thanks, Rachel!!! It really matched the salsa well. I tried to save some scraps for other projects!
Oh my goodness. That fabric is so awesome! I love what you did with it too (of course). Can never have too many garlands.
Isn’t the fabric gorgeous?!? It’s so vibrant. I love it.
I just did this for my daughter’s first birthday. I used double stick tape so I was able to put it together on a long car-ride (the only time free time I seem to have these days!). Obviously they won’t holdup for a long time, but they looked great at the party! Yours are so fun and festive! (ps, my daughter’s name is Lexie!)
Alyson! I thought about using double-stick tape, but I’m lazy and only buy the cheap kind. It’s just not quality sticky. And I’m so happy your daughter’s name is Lexie! I love when I hear about the other Lex’s in the world!
oh yes! no sew = right up my alley! why do my sewing skills suck so bad!? this is totally cute and i love the vintage-look fabric! ^__^
The fabric is definitely what makes the project. I’m all about anything I don’t have to put effort into. 😉
