What’s not to love about bunting? It adds a festive flair to every occasion. Bunting is so versatile—it can be made from paper, felt, fabric—today I made it from burlap. Hang bunting as is, or decorate using stencils and paint, or whatever you like. Have fun!

Several of these are handmade from reclaimed materials. Buy a gift. Save the planet. Make your friend twice as happy.
