Fabric Mini Bunting


A couple of days ago, I got the urge to add a little spring touch to some things in my house.  I don't have many Easter decorations, and otherwise, my house is looking just about the same as it does in the winter:)  But with warmer weather teasing us, I wanted to add some color.
Bunting Banners are very popular - and I have to admit, I like them too:) 
This is a very simple, inexpensive project, that fit my need for spring decor perfectly!

From my bag of fabric scraps, I cut a bunch of tiny triangles.  Each one was about 2" on each side.  I did use a piece of paper that I had cut into a triangle as a guide.  Holding the paper and fabric together, I cut each triangle out quickly, until I had a big pile. 
Using twine to hang the fabric, I put a line of tacky glue onto the back top of each triangle, and stuck them to the string, close together, and let them dry. 
I made two of them in just a couple of minutes, and hung one on the cabinet in the bathroom, and one on the piano...

They are really fun and whimsical.  My daughter is so sweet - and keeps commenting on how much she likes them.  So I will probably make one for her room as well. 
It is nice to use up tiny fabric scraps, and they match my house, since I have used a lot of this fabric for other things.  It sure is nice to welcome springtime!
