No Sew Fabric Bunting Banner!


This here little labor of love is something I like to call my 4th child!!! Seeing as it took me 6 plus hours to birth it I think it qualifies don’t you!!!

Honestly this was a never ending project! Over the course of 4 days I cut, sorted and stapled my heart out but the results were more then worth it!

Raid your fabric scraps and collect a wide variety of prints! As you can see there are a ton of different fabrics here! Let’s just say I was more then happy to finally find a use for
some of my awful fabric I had in my craft room! Yes the thought “Why would I ever
buy this?” did come to mind…many times!

Cut them up into square or rectangle shapes. The size and shape varied! This is a no measure sort of project! The more random the better!


I found it much easier to make a stack of alternating fabrics. Instead of leaning in and picking a fabric one at a time I randomly stacked mine and had them in arms reach as I attached each one!


Get yourself a big ol’ ball of twine!


Fold each piece of fabric over and staple a few times! Be sure to get at least one staple through the twine so it keeps that piece in place keeping it from sliding on the twine.

Repeat the stapling part about…oh… 1,239,058 more times and then you too can have a 4th child to call you’re very own!!!

I swear, no joke this thing is the length of a football field!

Because I used fabric I already had this entire Bunting banner only cost me $2.39!
The cost of the twine!

It looked so pretty hanging in my back yard I kept it up for days! Sadly now it’s been retired! It’s waiting for the next celebration or for someone to borrow it! Hint hint friends!!!

    Sister you weren't kidding when you said I'd love the How To of this project!!

    I DO NOT NEED A SEWING MACHINE!!!!!

    You are so brill. Honestly, how can you even stand living with yourself? Trade you?

    I do not have piles of fabric lying around. Guess I'll just have to pay a rental fee to borrow yours. I don't suppose you'd object to collect some cash every now and again would you?

    Oh my goodness! This is absolutely perfect and exactly what I’ve been looking for! For my upcoming vintage wedding in North Carolina this October I wanted to drape the inside of our tent with a fabric bunted banner. You mentioned you’ll be holding onto it for those who would like to borrow it… any chance you still have it? I would be interested in paying to use it, then return afterwards! Thanks so much, great idea!
