Mini Pie Tin Holiday Bunting

Tis the Season for  Buntings! All month I’ll be bringing you fun Christmas Bunting ideas and this first one is a one you will love becasue of it’s creative use of non traditional items! Meet the ” Mini Pie Tin Holiday Bunting!

To make this bunting you’ll need mini pie tins. I found my 5″ tins at Orson Gygi in Salt Lake for 15 cents each. You’ll also need mini and regular sized cupcake liners (also found at Orson Gygi) T’shirt fabric, ribbon and hot glue.

1.  Invert two large cupcake liners and hot glue them to the inside of your pie tin. Invert two small cupcake liners and glue them into the center of the pie tin.

2.  Create a ruffled piece of fabric by cutting a 1.5″ x 6″ strip of tshirt fabric. Do a running stitch and gather your fabric and tie off your stitch.

3. Glue your fabric ruffle into the very center of your tin!

4. Add decorative trim around the outer edge of each tin.

5. Cut two 2′ pieces of ribbon and glue then onto the upper half of each pie tin.

6. Tie the pieces of ribbon together. After you make one bow, tie two more mows to create a multiple looped bow. Add small hot glue dots in the knotted sections of the bow to keep it from coming untied.

And lastly you hang it and enjoy!

You’ll notice with many of my buntings that I use non tradition colors! I openly admit my love of blue so it’s made a cameo in all of the holiday decor here in teh Blue Cricket house!  So get ready for more bunitng love all month long!

And here’s a question… what non traditional items have incorporated into your crafting?
