With summer party season well and truly underway, we’ve been creating some fun DIY decorations that are perfect for all your outdoor events this summer. This week, we’ve been getting creative with our popular wooden bunting shapes, a great way to showcase your own personal style! With lots of fun and unique shapes, we have something for every occasion – from traditional flags to animals and alphabet letters, you can colour, stamp and embellish any wooden shape that perfectly fits your summer theme. If you’re in the midst of planning your next family BBQ or garden party, why not create your own beautiful bunting that’s sure to turn heads! 

Here are a few fun decoration ideas:

Classic Flag Bunting

Go for a traditional, pastel style using our classic flag wooden shapes. We recommend painting each shape with acrylic paint for a lovely matte finish. The paint colours we’ve used are purple cow, yellow light, baby blue, pistachio mint and baby pink and strung them together using rust orange string.

Pastel Pom Pom Bunting

For a cute and colourful bunting, string together our brand new yarn pom pom sets. With a choice of five new colour-ways, you can choose the perfect collection to match your party theme. This is a really quick and easy project, perfect for last minute planning!

Hearts and Flower Bunting

If you love a big project and have a bit more time to prep, impress your guests with a beautiful hearts and flower bunting. To decorate the flower, we recommend stacking our ditsy embellishments and adding a sprinkle of glitter for a pretty floral design. We’ve coated the wooden hearts using Pink Petunia and Pink Grapefruit ink pads and decorated with our nature stamp setdaisy stamp and mini mixed hearts.

TOP TIP: Why not apply our scrapbook letters and embellishments to personalise your wooden shapes for a special occasion as we have here for this bee-themed bunting:
