A Simple Christmas Bunting


You've seen my simple little book page buntings before and now that December is nearly here I just had to make one for Christmas too! :) They're so quick and easy to put together and add just the right handmade touch to your holiday decor. Scroll down for a supply list and instructions on how to create your own Christmas bunting!


What you'll need to make your Christmas bunting:

some string or twine | a stapler | buttons |  coordinating pattern paper | gluestick or other type of adhesive | some pages from an old book


Here's how you'll put it together:

1. Using your book pages cut out however many rectangles you'd like approximately 3.5" x 6" in size.

2. Snip out a triangle shape from the bottom of your rectangles. Hint: From left to right, find the center of your rectangle then measure approximately 1 3/4 " from the bottom to find where the top point of your triangle will be.

3. Cut out the number of stockings {or other Christmas shape} that you'll need for each 
piece of your bunting.


4. Attach stockings to your bunting pieces being sure to allow enough room to fold over the top edges. Place a button in the center of each stocking.

5. Now you're ready to put your bunting together. Simply cut a length of string and attach banner pieces to string by folding top edge of banner pieces over the string + staple. Space banner pieces evenly along the string by sliding them back and forth as needed.

6. Now hang that cutie up somewhere and enjoy your new holiday decor!



I hope you enjoy our little Christmas bunting as much as I do! It was a lot of fun to put together and looks so darling hanging up in our home for the holidays!

  9. So cute. It inspired me to make my own bunting from Christmas paper and favorite photos from the year. A fitting end to 2012. Made it with my 4 year old --so simple. This may become our new annual family Christmas tradition. Imagine what our house will look like 10 or 20 Christmases from now with all those buntings! Love it.
