Making bunting for VE Day
Celebrating anything is fun. When you want to make your own bunting it is quick and easy and adds to the fun. Jane shows how she did it for the VE Day celebrations on Friday.
Paint the bunting
I painted the design with acrylic paint, used flow enhancer to let down the paint to give a flatter finish. Trim round the two sides and the bottom but leave about 4” at the top to make a flap at the end.
Painting the flags
I hand painted each one in acrylics using a cadmium red and cerulean blue with a bit of Payne’s grey to darken slightly.
Finishing it off
So now score across the top of each piece and fold the top of each piece back, I then placed some white satin ribbon across the top under the flap and using double sided tape stick down.
