Another cute activity for older kids or Mum's looking to make something cheap and cute for their little ones room.
These pom poms came in a big bag which cost $2 at a craft shop. The glitter card also cost about $2 which I bought at a dollar/pound shop. So this is quite an inexpensive way to make something a bit cute and add a bit of sparkle to any room.
1, Find a sized circle you like and trace around it onto the back of the card, cut it in half and this will make your template. I used a plastic cup for the size of mine.
2, Now just trace it onto the rest of the card and cut out your bunting, I got 12 from 2 sheets of card.
3, Now with your hole punch, punch 2 holes in your bunting pieces, one in each corner
4, Now cut out a long length of your string (I used a gold yarn which I already had). Then thread the yarn onto the bodkin (or just a regular needle, depending on the thickness of your yarn/string). Now start with threading through a pom pom then the bunting shape, and so one, finishing with a pom pom. this is so when you tie it off it wont fall off the string.
Now for the two ends, for each end I tied a loop and knot, then I threaded the left over yarn through the pom pom and cut it off, just to make it neat.
Now hang it up and admire it's cuteness. I used blue tack to adhere mine to the wall, but with the loops you can hang it from some hooks too.
I hung mine in my daughters room, she was pretty happy with it.
So this is a pretty easy way to make bunting that doesn't require a sewing machine.
You could use any coloured card or even foam, you could even use those lovely wool felt balls. There are lots of variations you could try. I would love to try some with my vintage wallpaper, for a vintage look. I even made some without the pom poms and just ran my cardboard through the sewing machine. This was also quite easy if you have a sewing machine.
