Here's a simple, but cute bunting you can make with items purchased at the Dollar Store. All you need are the following:
1 pkg. regular-sized baking cups
1 pkg. mini baking cups
Total cost: $2.00
(with cupcake picks and 82 mini baking cups leftover for another project!)
Step #1 - Iron the baking cups flat.
Step #2 - Cut the baking cups in half.
Step #3 - Glue the mini baking cups to the center of the regular baking cups.
Step #4 - Stagger the baking cups as you stitch them down the center with the sewing machine.
Step #5 - Display!
Just a note...this bunting doesn't hang like your traditional bunting (with a gentle curve) so it's best laying on top of the mantle, or table, or attached across the front edge. A couple of rows of these would look rather cute as a table runner for your Valentine's dinner! Of course, with each holiday the Dollar Store has baking cups to match. So these could be made for other holidays as well!
I like to link to these great parties!
