Christmas bunting is quick, fun and reusable year after year! So if you’re looking for a simple yet smart Christmas decoration you can make at home, then you’ll just love this Christmas bunting project from the wonderful Debbie Shore. Follow Debbie Shore’s straight-forward step-by-step instructions below, and from a pack of 6 fat quarters, you’ll be able to make a double-sided string of about 90” in length. It’s just perfect for adding a little festive cheer to window frames, doorways and mantelpieces. If you want to make your fabric go even further, simply use a plain fabric for the backing.

Debbie Shore’s Top Tip: It helps to use a non-directional print to avoid wastage, but if your bunting will be against a wall, simply use the upside-down print on the back!

Fold the bias binding in half, and press. Slip the binding over the pennants, leaving a gap in between each one of 1.5”. Pin or clip in place, then sew.

Step 5:

From some green and red felt, cut out a handful of holly leaves and red circles for berries. Don’t worry about them all being exactly the same size!

Step 6:

Glue the leaves to the bunting in groups of two or three, then add berries to finish.

You could add a bit more detail by embroidering veins along the centre of the leaves, and red beads would look good instead of the felt I used for berries! Once your handmade Christmas Bunting is complete, hang it up in a window, across a doorframe or along your mantelpiece for instant festive feel-good!
