diy EASTER bunting

if you are anything like me,
you only like really simple craft activities that suit ages 5 to 95!
and this little project is certainly one of those!
all you need is a packet of paper doilies, twine or string, some pretty paper (i used some left over scented drawer liners) a Easter egg template, scissors and glue.
(you'll be hard pressed finding a craft project as cheap as this one too!!)
Emily printed off an Easter egg template to make it super easy to get the shape right.
trace out your eggs on the back of the patterned paper.
cut them out and fold some of the paper doilies in half.
then place the doilies over the twine and glue down.
i then glued an Easter egg onto every 2nd 'flag'.
of course this craft activity could be adapted and used at Christmas time or for birthdays.

Emily made this bunting last night. she got the idea from 'Pinterest' in the DIY category here.
we collected paint sample cards from Bunnings and don't they look fabulous!?
remember to leave at least 20cm of string either
end of your bunting so you can tie it up.

i decided one bunting wasn't enough so made a 2nd one.
they compliment my milk glass so perfectly!
have fun making your own!
