For as long as Johnny has had the playhouse on the go, I've had a few things in the back of my mind to make for it.
This bunting that can stay up in all weathers wasn't the first on my to do list but made it to the top somehow!
It is super easy and the girls helped me out...fuelled in their efforts by a bit of a mid morning snack.
This is what you need:
*long piece of string
*sewing machine (optional)
I gave the girls each a stencil, folded a piece of oil cloth over and got them to draw and cut round. The triangles were far from perfect but I love they were all cut out by them!
I made 12 of the diamond shapes to fit into our space but this can be adapted to suit whatever space you want to fill.
Lay the string along the centre fold of the diamond shape.
I glued this in position using the glue gun as I didn't want the triangles to move about.
Glue an edge right around the triangle and fold the diamond over onto itself to give you the triangle shape with the string secured between the fold.
Leave a space between each triangle and repeat until you've used up all your cut outs.
At this point you can sew around the edge (I did - as I want it to last as long as possible!) but this is completely optional!
I am so pleased with how it turned out and adds a little colour to the front...hopefully this will be a little brightener in the midst of winter!
