This is the BEST.

Let me give you a quick back story on this.

So, I was at Pottery Barn Kids the other day looking around and I saw these really cute kid buntings everywhere.

They had them strung up on the wall, over cute framed prints, and draped over the beds. These buntings looked amazing and added so much to the decor.

I immediately became obsessed with them!

But the $40 price tag? Not so much. Are you kidding me?

I’ve come up with an easy and inexpensive DIY project to make these felt buntings/garlands. I made one for my son and daughter’s room. I just love the way they turned out.

This bunting tutorial is the best because …

  • It’s cheap.
  • It’s quick.
  • It’s easy.
  • It looks so good!

I made this bunting out of felt squares but you could also use your favorite fabric. I love felt because it’s sturdy and easy to work with. Which is why I also used it to make my DIY felt pennants.

Let’s get our materials gathered up and get started …

As a side note before we begin – this cotton clothesline is quickly becoming a go-to craft supply in my DIY projects.

  1. Start off by choosing the colors you want from the felt squares. I like muted boy colors – so I chose blues, greens, grays, oranges, and black.
  2. Once you have your colors chosen, cut out your triangle shapes. My triangles ended up being 3.5 inches from the top to the bottom point. you can make them as big or small as you want.
  3. Use your pins to attach each pennant to the cotton rope. I left about an inch space between each pennant. I started the pennants about 3 inches from the beginning of the rope. Why? Because you will want to leave a little bit of overhang there and give yourself room to hang it up.
  4. Now you are going to carefully sew your felt triangles to the rope. You will need to guide your rope through the machine slowly by gently pulling it through. If not, it might get stuck in place. If you are using hot glue – then just hot glue each one to the cotton rope – be careful not to burn yourself. Been there!)

And that’s it my friends! How cute is this!?
