This simple project will brighten up any outdoor space, and due to it being made of umbrella fabric, it is completely weather proof too! I had a gorgeous big rainbow umbrella, but after a while it inevitably got blown inside out. I couldn't bring myself to throw it out, even though it was trashed, and then inspiration struck! Outdoor bunting! Yey!!!
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
- A long piece of ribbon
-An old broken rainbow ( or other bright and pretty ) umbrella
-Sewing machine ( optional, you can also sew this by hand)
-Old cereal box, pen and scissors
WHAT TO DO:
- Make a triangular bunting flag shape from your cardboard and cut out
- Draw around your template on each colour of your rainbow and cut out flags
- Pin the flags to your ribbon spaced a few cm's apart
- Sew flags on in one long uninterrupted line of stitching, securing thread at each end
-Tie a loop in each end of your ribbon and hang somewhere nice
-That's it! You're done!
