Make it Monday :: Candy Corn Bunting from Handmade Cuddles

September is nearly over, and autumn is setting in. The leaves have started to fall from the trees and everyone is getting ready for Halloween (and Christmas!)

Today Stephanie from HandmadeCuddles is sharing a Halloween inspired tutorial to make "Candy Corn Bunting", but it would look wonderful in Christmas colours, Autumn colours, or made from some of the new printed felt!

White felt, orange felt & yellow felt
2.5 meters of orange ribbon
Glue Gun or felt glue (or you can hand / machine sew them on)
Pattern (download here)

Step 1
Download and print out the pattern linked above. I cut out 4 felt triangles of each colour, but if you want to make the bunting longer or shorter you can by cutting out more or less triangles.

Step 2
Take your ribbon, and measure 50 cm in from one end (this is for hanging the bunting up later).
Take a felt triangle and your ribbon, and with your glue gun, add some dabs of glue along the ribbon and stick your felt triangle down onto it. Allow it to cool a moment before moving onto the next triangle.

If you don't want to use a hot glue gun, you can always sew the triangles by hand or on the sewing machine.

Step 3
Continue to add more flags, going white, orange, yellow, white, orange, yellow and so on, until you used up all your triangles.
When you have stuck all the triangles on, measure 50 cm of ribbon at the end and trim off any excess you may have.

And now hang up your Candy Corn Bunting ready for Halloween!!
