Bunting


Looking at pictures of bunting, I was never tempted to make or use it.  Then one day I found myself wondering how a Halloween bunting would look. I thought some small bunting might pop up my shadow box, so I decided to try it.

I played around with the size and shape of the triangles until I liked the proportions, made the triangles and wondered how I would string them.  Twine seemed appropriate, but how to attach them.  I put them on with straight pins to get the positioning, and liked the way it looked, so I hung it up.  The pins are kind of like the clothes pin effect for bigger projects.

When Halloween is over, I put away the pumpkins with faces (Jack-o-lanterns), and keep the remaining pumpkins for fall and Thanksgiving decoration.  This bunting has a touch of Halloween but that's okay.
