I recently hung some handmade banners in my newborn daughter’s nursery, and I loved how festive it made the room feel.  For summer, especially, I love a fun, laid-back, imperfect and casual, party feel… and I thought my 2 and 4-year-old boys would love it.

Boy was I ever right…  My oldest’s first question was, “Mom, can we leave our fun summer party flags up forever?!?!?!”

My response was non-committal. 😉

But for a few bucks and maybe an hour of work, I don’t feel pressured to leave them up any longer than I want to.  If I get tired of them in a week, no problem.  But if we still love them a year from now, it’s all good because they look “amazing” (according to my 2-year-old).

I started with some fabric squares from Joanne’s.  I varied the sizes of the patterns and tried to capture a slightly vintage feel.

Those plus some scissors, white grosgrain ribbon, and hot glue were all I needed.  I folded the fabrics so I could cut out multiple layers at once and then lined up all my fabrics in the order I planned to use them.

Armed with my hot glue gun, I grabbed two triangles of a given color and put a bead of glue along the top edge of the back side of one triangle (see left photo below).

I secured the ribbon and then put another bead of glue around the edge of the face-down triangle and placed the second triangle face up on top (see right photo above).  This makes your bunting two sided.  Perfect for stringing haphazardly overhead.  And, naturally, a perfect complement to my completely undecorated bookcase in my kids room (insert much-needed grace to the mother of a 5-week-old 😉 ).

I even used a few of the flags to make a little bunting to add to my patriotic decor.
