DIY: Cake Bunting

Friday, January 17, 2014

So you might have noticed that on the last post that sitting on top of the funfetti cake was a string of bunting and it's so easy to make. It can work for any occasion, birthdays, Christmas, Valentines etc. As long as you have some pretty wrapping paper or coloured card you can make this.

You will need: Pretty Wrapping Paper - Scissors - Twine/String/Wool - Gluestick - Wooden Skewers

Step One - Cut out eight triangles out of your chosen pretty wrapping paper.

Step two - Glue together the triangles to stiffen the paper.So in total you have four triangles.

Step three - You may have to trim around the sides slightly to keep them look neat and tidy.

Step four - Measure out a length of twine. You need enough space to glue the triangles on as well as some extra twine to tie around the wooden skewers.

Step five - Tie the twine around the wooden skewers. This should look like a mini washing line.

Step six - Glue the triangles onto the twine and hold down slightly until they are secure. And voila! Your cakes shall never look plain again!
