When we moved in, there was a massive stack of paint color samples left in one of the closets.
I'd be lying if I said I wasn't ecstatic over the discovery.
There are tons of amazing bunting flags out there.
You've seen them.
Thankfully, when browsing fabric for a bunting project I was planning, I remembered the huge stack of paint chips.
With a little bit of ribbon, hot glue, and paper paint samples, I made this:
(Hammer and scissors in the playroom? On the bookshelf? You can totally judge me for that one.)
Wide paint samples (mine have three colors per card).
Hot glue and glue gun.
Cut paint samples into triangles.
I used pinking shears, but scissors work fine.
After you've cut your paint chips, measure your ribbon to your desired length, and lie it on a flat surface.
Without using glue, place your triangles one by one along the ribbon to determine how many triangles fit, and to center the paint chips so that the ribbon ends are equal in length.
When they are positioned where you want them, simply start with the first triangle and add a line of hot glue along the top.
Press the triangle firmly onto the ribbon.
Continue until everything is glued down.
Eventually, you'll end up with something like this:
I made four buntings and will show you all of them next week when I reveal the playroom.
This happy little project was easy peasy, adorable, and practically free.
It doesn't get much better.
