No Sew Bunting

I have this wonderful gift this summer. I have an intern...and she's wonderful! I tell her to go work on a project, and she does. I ask her to create posts or emails, and she does. I wanted some sweet baby shower buntings, and so she did one. And then she posted a tutorial about it, so that you could see how to do it, too! See, how wonderful she is?

Do It Yourself

No Sew Bunting


Ribbon (cut to desired length)

Fabric (in different colors and patterns) cut into triangles

Hot Glue Gun



Step 1. Preparation- Cut triangles from fabric, cut ribbon, plug in your hot glue gun.

Steps 2-4. Glue triangles to the back of the ribbon face down, with some of the ribbon still visible above the triangle; repeat for each triangle. As you continue gluing the triangles to the ribbon keep them evenly spaced.

Steps 5-7. Once the ribbon is full or your triangles are all glued down it’s time to reinforce the triangles. Using your hot glue gun, fold the top half of the ribbon to cover the tops of the triangles; glue and hold; repeat.

Step 8. Trim the ends of the ribbon and use tacks to hang your bunting!

The end product should look like this!...

* If you're using your bunting against a surface, where the back won't be showing, then this will work for you; however, if you're planning on hanging your bunting in a doorway, where both sides can be seen, you may want to glue two triangles at a time, back to back.

I have several buntings now, and love using them for just about any occasion. They're fun and so festive...and thanks to Krista, now we have a tutorial on one! Enjoy!

  1. Wow... she sounds great! Thank you Krista for this fun tutorial. The bunting is so, so pretty! :)

  2. Hmmmmm - this might be a way to use up some that fabric stash I am wanting to sew - and now - glue through...I am thinking ironing the bunting triangles together using some old heat and bond I have might be just the ticket! And use hem tape for the attaching to the ribbon...for me, I could even use contrasting fabric "ribbon" and use up even more of The Stash - thanks for the inspiration!

  3. How fun! What a great 'no sew' idea. I've seen these before with lots of sewing thank you for posting this week to Sneak Peek! =)

  4. what a gem! you are very blessed to have found someone to accentuate your brand.

  5. Great job, Krista! I love how a string of bunting makes it feel like a celebration!

  6. Thanks for sharing! So festive. I made one from paper for my daughter's March birthday in greens.
