Golden Straw Bunting

We came across this gem on Pinterest and just had to share it! Isn't it the cutest? Party decor or year round home decor (I'm thinking my baby girl's nursery?!) it is cheap, easy, and looks fabulous! Head over to oleanderandpalm.com for the full tutorial. 


"Buntings aren't dead yet.  But, I'm trying something a little less country, shabby chic-ish, with this gold straw bunting.  It's light and airy and almost feels like a piece of jewelry for your home.  This Christmas, when we were in Boise, ID, the Anthropology store had a fabulous display made with straws painted gold.  I've been wanting to make a scaled down version for my mantel ever since.  

This simple bunting is season-less and can coordinate with any home decor or party theme.

1. You'll need lots of paper straws.  For each triangle you'll need two full length straws and one half length.  You'll also need some heavy thread or twine and a large needle.

2. Start by threading the needle and thread through the small straw.

3. Pull a long length of the thread through the straw.

4. Put the thread the one of the full length straws.


5. Thread the needle and thread through the second full length straw.

6. Now thread the needle back through the short straw.  Pull tight so that the straws are tight against each other at the points.

7. Start again, threading on the short straw and continue with steps 2-6.

8. Using gold spray paint, paint the bunting in a well ventilated area.  You will need to turn the bunting over and rotate the straws a couple times to cover all sides of the straws."




 As a side note, I think this would be cute as is - (maybe string to match the straw) - so you wouldn't have to spray paint. Especially if just using for a one-time party decor. We have a ton of cute striped straws in store, and a few options online here! Either way, stop in to grab your straws, we have them cheap and in bulk! ($5.99 for 25)


Happy decorating!
