Fancy Frugal Life: "Just Married" bunting banner

"Just Married" bunting banner

Every vintage wedding needs some fabric bunting and here is mine. The best part is no sewing! The thought of that task was a little daunting so I used heat bond tape instead and it turned out great!

The other day I found a bunch of great quality fabric at Goodwill for half off. I scooped all this for less than $8.00…My fav is that yellow toile fabric for $1.00. I decided to use the solid beige fabric for my banner.

All you need for this project is:
· Heat bond tape
· Fabric
· I used pinking shears
· Iron
· Starch
· Twine
· Paint & brush
· Stencils

First I made a triangle template with cardstock. Second I traced a diamond shape using both sides of the template & cut out shape with pinking shears. This is so its double sided. Third, I placed strips of the heat bond in the fold and at the point. Just iron and starch really well. The last thing I did was stencil the letters on with black paint. The bird stencil I made from clip art via Google.

So easy and I think will be a fun statement piece at my brother’s wedding!

Here's some of my own thrity finds & DIY projects with it!

There's some of that fabric from Goodwill, my DIY chalkboard plate, thrifty plate stand, & a new sqare stand I found for $3.00. Love it!

It's gonna go great with this cute-ness! By the way…thanks a whole bunch for all your sweet comments on my little vintage suitcase “Honeymoon fund”. The bride went crazy over this which also made me ecstatic!

Speaking of the bride (my cute future SIL), her aunt is an incredible photographer in Utah. They recently road tripped it to see her and had these gorgeous engagements done. Visit Stephanie McBride Photography to see all the photos.

Seriously... she captured their style and lovliness perfectly!!

This makes me even more excited about their wedding in Sedona, AZ this October. My 3 year old flower girl is super excited saying, “Mommy they’re getting ‘merweed’ and I’m gonna ‘fro’ some ‘frowers’.” Love it and can’t wait for that part!

I'm a recent bunting addict--yours is so adorable, nice job and great fabric find. I did an entire DIY wedding series here: http://cheapchichome.blogspot.com/search/label/Wedding%20DIY It's very different in style than the vintage wedding, but may be helpful if you're doing any more decor. (My bunting was very little sewing ;)).
